600 Miles in 4 Days When your son, aged 11 says he wants to spend longer than a weekend with he's Granny & she's happy with that, then it's a golden opportunity to jump on the bike with the wife & see some sights. Since I believe a picture paints a thousand words I'm going to keep the text short and put plenty of photos in. Day 1 - Leave Sudbury around 9:30 am to have Lunch & a wander around Lincoln, via The Kings Forest, Kings Lynn & Sleaford, - 120 miles.
Lincoln is a fine city especially around the castle & cathedral & is worth a detour. Head off to my Aunt & Uncles in Wetherby, having to pay a stupid 10p toil on the bridge over the River Trent on the A57. Then a blast up the A1 to arrive for an evening catching up with my relatives - 75miles Day 2 - A more leisurely day today as we only have to do 85 miles to get to our evening stop at Britain's highest pub, Tan Hill. Leave around 10 & stop to have a coffee & quick look around Skipton - 35 miles. Decide we must revisit Skipton with little'n when we come back up this way in the Autumn half-term.
