Welcome to my Great North Trail blog.
The Great North Trail is a long-distance off-road trail from the Peak District to Cape Wrath or John o’ Groats, covering a distance of 1327.71km, (825 miles).
Over the next couple of years or so, (in between other adventures), Rhona and I plan to see how much of this route, (in no particular order), can be done by a blind guy and his guide #BLINDRIDER #GUIDERIDER
As we only have the 1 vehicle, the majority of the route will have to be done “there and back”, meaning that by the time we finish, we may well have done almost double the distance.
Follow our progress below, and maybe we’ll bump into you, (not literally, I hope), along the way.
GNT KMS SO FAR (ONE WAY): 248.04
ACTUAL KMS SO FAR: 490.40
