Pennine Cycle

In summer 2009, to see if long-distance cycling was for me, I took my Trek bike on the train to Berwick-upon-Tweed and cycled all the way to Derby along the Pennine Cycleway. Staying mainly in youth hostels as well as spending a few days in West Yorkshire with my family, I loved every second! It was the perfect launchpad for the bigger Eurovelo 5 adventure that was to follow twelve months later…

As I cycled, I blogged:
