He is at the Tebay Service Station - wonder if he got there via the M6!

It looks as though he spent the night at YHA Grinton Lodge, that will mean that he is on schedule to finish today.

It is gone 09.00 and he is still there, slacking or just confident?

He has stopped at The Lion Inn for refreshment, not far to go although he has got that steep road beside "Fat Betty" to cycle up or more likely walk!

Will have made it by now, going down the hill into RHB at 12.40.

Ha ha, well yeah, that was a bit different! Great fun at times but hard work in places coaxing Max (the bike) up some of the hills... Apologies for the tracker - sounds like it was indeed patchy. I paid for 14 days history which is under a a tenner. But I think it sounds like the link only showed real time postions and not the stored ones. My map shows all the balloons like SPOT, but sounds like you couldn't see them... I suppose you get what you pay for. Interestingly, after I'd cancelled my SPOT sub, I learned that you can now subscribe for less that the full 12 months that was the previous minimum term. SPOT store your card details and take it out automatically - it went up quite a bit after Brexit as payment is in Euros, so it came as a bit of shock when they took it out last year!
The rear wheel turned out to be a bit 'technical' which made spoke replacement tricky, but more on that later...

Well done, a pity about the tracker as it would have helped to look back and see which way you had gone after being away from the computer for a few hours. However I did like the speed showing as I could then see whether you were walking or cycling. The balloon going down the hill at RHB showed, from memory, 6 mph so I knew that you were going down and not cycling back up!
