Nina and Tonys coast to coast

We set off from Whitehaven after a long drive up from Warrington.
Amazingly the weather was great with blue skies and sunshine all day.
Progress was steady and we aimed to have our first proper break at Keswick.
However,our good luck was not to last as while passing Whinlatter forest enjoying a downhill Nina was hit by a car! Luckily it was a slow speed incident but it shocked her nonetheless and she now has a considerable bruise on her leg.
After Keswick it seemed that most of the cycling was uphill and my Brother, John, was struggling. Luckily Nina was there to encourage him up the torturous inclines.
We eventually made it to our first nights accommodation at Jubilee house, the rehabilitation centre for injured Firefighters, this was a welcome relief for our tired legs.
Day one was over and tomorrow looks that it might be tougher and longer.
