LEJOG 2016 - Day 3

LEJOG 2016 - Day 3

Morethighligenhampstead to Glastonbury - 71 miles

Today is The Flyers birthday and he rewarded himself with climbing more tough hills with a total climb of 4,050 feet even though day 3 was supposed to be easier than days 1 and 2!

One cyclist on the Team will be pulling out a day early due to injury but the Dunkirk Spirit prevails for the other 2.

The highlight of the day was a 3 mile descent into Corfe, near Taunton, which was amazing.

The Flyer keeps lightening his luggage load by forgetting to pack all of his items as each B&B! Luckily I will be meeting him in Monmouth tomorrow so he can restock.

  • Happy Birthday to our resident Flyer. Tell him to blow out the candles and make the wish we all share but not too much cake...he'll never get up those hills! :-)


  • A very happy birthday to The Flyer. Hope the rain stays away tomorrow.


  • Happy birthday Flyer... May that Dunkirk spirit keep you going... And may you avoid any injuries or accidents.

    As your faithful hound has spelt it out "Keep on pedalling!"

    Best wishes,


  • Happy birthday Jules.

  • Happy birthday to you flyer, perhaps you should refrain from blowing out the candles to save some breath for those uphill blogs, good luck, Terry

  • In case anyone else was looking for theflyer's route in a hope that they could give him some support, which I was convinced I'd seen before. It is documented in the folllowing post: healthunlocked.com/cllsuppo...
