The original guestimate for “Deano & Paddy’s 2019 Big Adventure” was a 2 day, 200km, walk/sea-swim/proneboard/cycle challenge. However, with more accurate calculations it has now increased to a 3 day, 310km, walk/sea-swim/prone/cycle challenge. And instead of the middle night being spent in a comfy hostel or B&B, Patrick is now suggesting the now “2-3” nights should be spent in bivvy bags to make things more flexible. (For a big old claustrophobe like me, this is definitely less appealing!) But, I guess if it was too easy, somebody would have done it already!)
With all of this in mind, I got on my bike today and followed the big yellow blob, (aka the wonderful Rhona), as she guided me around “Old Brucey”, along “The Narrows”, and I somehow got through “Fiddle-Fart” without putting my feet down!
18km done, just another 230 to go!
