Day 1 (29th July 09)

Set off at around 10:00am with an estimated 160% chance of dying between Dave and Myself. The plan was to reach Oswestry by the end of the 1st day, but thanks to some of the hottest British weather EVER we were forced to stop early at Shrewsbury.

Random Tally:

Road Kill: 2
Dave almost dying from the heat: 1

Thoughts of the day:
Temperature is 27 degrees and I'm waterproofs, a sleeping bag and thermal base layers....why?

A5 is amazing! - Top speed 35mph on flat (and that's not on a road bike!)

"If sound could travel to the Sun how long would it take to tell it to bugger off?"
"Well, it takes 8 mins for light travelling at 3x10^8 m/s to reach earth, and sound
travels at around 300 m/s. So it would take about 8x10^6 mins (...obviously)."
