    Have a great ride and I hope you make a heap of money for that hospice! Many years ago I was on a cycle tour of France and England when my bike gave up the ghost so I hiked about 1/3 of the Pennine Way and it was definitely one of the highlights of that trip. After returning home to Toronto I read an article about three guys who rode the Trans Pennine Trail in winter and I would love to do that ride. I since returned to cycle England in the winter and spring but I only rode in the south. One day I hope to explore more of the UK by cycling or hiking.

    Hey, the trans Pennine trail goes right past my house. Unfortunately, I'll be away in Cornwall the dates you mention. It's a shame. You could have popped in for a cuppa.

    I see the entire trail is open to bicyclists from coast to coast. Excellent. I think I'll incorporate it into my summer tour this year.
