Just got the detailed route package for my tour. Maps, guides, map holder, luggage tags, etc.
I'm starting out in Manchester at
for a few days,
then it's up to Ulverston and the biking where I'll stay
at these inns along the way;
A short metro ride at tour's end will bring me to Newcastle where I'll stay at
and then I'll take my final jaunt up to Edinburgh at
I have to pick up the bicycle at Gill Cycles in Ulverston where I'm told I don't get panniers so I'm bringing one of mine along.
Will have to buy a water bottle or two locally 'cause I'm not using up valuable packing space with empty bottles.
Now it's time to absorb the maps bearing in mind that some of it is very detailed with little lanes and paths.
