After lunch in Wick it was only 17 miles to go but into what must have been a 20mph headwind it took almost 3 hours! I achieved my first average for any day on a bike of below 10mph! One long drag then a reward of the Orkneys in the distance, regroup with Rob - the final hill he crested first his only one of the trip!
To the signpost but no photographer. Staying in the Seaview Hotel, which has a surprisingly good menu.
Minibus to Inverness then train to Edinburgh. Train on Monday to Birmingham.
Would I do it again? No chance but then that's what Rob said five years ago.
