Jogle Day 5: 112 Miles. Gretna to Blackburn: Jason’s Story

6am. A sense of achievement was felt all round as we cycled a few steps from our lodging in Gretna to the ‘Welcome to England’ sign. This was quickly followed by the anticipation of the day ahead, 112 miles to Blackburn!

The following is from Jason, our ‘man in the saddle’ who picks up the story:

I seriously cannot explain how exhausted I am today. The reality of 4 consecutive days of 5 hours kip each night, waking up at 4.30am and cycling all day is now kicking in. Every muscle, joint and part of my body is aching or sore, getting on the bike today is a frightening prospect 🙁

This has got to be one of the most difficult (stupid), things I’ve ever attempted.

Seriously if you haven’t donated yet, please do. Apart from supporting a great cause, seeing people help will hopefully spur me on.

Right then only a 105 mile ride today
