Malham and the World

My pub crawl of the Dales continues… although this being lunchtime I kept off the beer. Another beautiful ride, despite another section of pushing just after Settle. Over the tops I came up with the idea of not just cycling to Puglia next year but of cycling around the World, doing another section each summer. On passing through a pristine village called Airton, I stopped to enquire if there was a shop or pub and got chatting to the bloke I had asked. He told me that a chap called Alastair Humphreys lives in the village and that he had cycled around the World and written about it. He did it in over 400 days – a bit longer than Mark Beaumont! But a strange coincidence nevertheless…
