One of the Last Great British Adventures…….
Another leg complete as the Beeline Britain team reach mainland Scotland. Their arduous journey continues in the same vain as it began, with great excitement and a strong will to complete this mammoth journey.
The team left the very north tip of the Isle of Man at 1800h Monday evening in high spirits as they looked to reach the Isle of Whithorn in southern Scotland from Point of Ayre by sea kayaking for another 5 and a half hours.
They reached their destination late on Monday evening at 2330h and were elated to have reached mainland Scotland, where they will now be swapping paddles for peddles, cycling through the Isle of Whithorn today and through the stunning Galloway Forest where they will end up in Dalmelington.
The beautiful weather Scotland has provided has helped the team no end, from bringing perfect cycling conditions to getting people out and engaging with the team, the interest so far has been overwhelming. Even at the first lunch stop the Scottish people came out, were inquisitive, friendly and incredibly generous. The support already has been incredible.
The team are thrilled to be heading towards and then through the city of Glasgow, the home of the Commonwealth Games. After holding the Queen’s Baton in North Wales Adam Harmer, one of the Beeline Britain team said; “it’s incredible to be cycling through the host city of the Commonwealth Games this year and the place where the Queen’s Baton is going to finish. Seeing all of the sights of Glasgow and the arenas the games are going to take place in will be really special.”
