Hello. No wonder I am knackered tonight, I've just checked on bikehike.co.uk and I've done 22 miles today. I was rather hoping I could make it to York, and I have. I started looking for a hotel just before the ring road, and went in the Premier Inn, they wanted £85 which didn't include breakfast, that was another tenner. I thought that was taking the Mick, Premier is nothing special, a bit like Travel Lodge. I would have thought they could include breakfast for that price. I wasn't intending to walk much further but that spurred me on to find something better, and I have. I walked into the Youth Hostel, I have a private room en suite, breakfast included, for £42. That will do nicely. The receptionist said I would have to use the wifi in the communal areas, but I am sitting here on my bed and it works fine. Ooooh, it's lovely to put my feet up.
I've had a brush with the law today, I was caught in a speed trap and the bobby said I was walking too fast, ha ha. No, he didn't just joking. He was out and about to catch drivers without their seatbelts on, and those fiddling around with their phones while driving. Pity we don't see more community bobbies out and about, he was lovely.
A nice little B & B, how come I always come across them when I don't actually need one.
I saw this marked on the map and thought it a strange name. Low and behold there is a sign for it.
No wind or rain today, it was a great day for walking.
What does tomorrow hold? Well I am not about to give up, having come this far I have to finish it at the River Humber, at the bridge. I will check the maps if I can get off this bed, my legs have seized up. It would be great to finish it in two more days, so I will look at splitting the distance in half and see if I can find a bed in the middle. That's me being optimistic, it may have to go into Thursday.
Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
