Leaving Kendal, there is no easy way to put this – 400m of height to be gained over 10miles with an almost continuous climb. Not bad as we only climb 750m in total over the whole day. How easy is that last 68miles going to be today!!!!!!! Don’t worry, the morning stop has been arranged to allow us all to recover before we continue to enjoy an almost continual downhill ride to Dumfries. The scenery will impress, but unfortunately, we will be on the A6. The vehicles will be behind warning of cyclists in the road, and once we reach the mornings stop the character of the road changes and feels less exposed. After lunch we leave the A6 behind and enjoy the country lanes again, passing into Scotland and through Gretna Green.
