Okay, the plan today was to head to the Scotlands so Nigel could show me some of his local roads, it started out fine,

but then as we headed off the Carlisle, Nigel got a bit over excited and ...

.. err Nigel ..


When I got to Carlisle there was no sign of him so I took the new northern by-pass up to the M6 and waited for him there,

but to no avail and after a couple of circuits of Carlisle I decided he was lost and that I'd certainly get the blame. Still, I wasn't going to let it spoil my day and I set off down the Eden Valley, one of my favourite places.

Even had a bit of luck bumping into the Duchess of Hamilton on the Settle and Carlisle!

In the end a very nice day, amazingly I arrived back at the hotel 2 minutes after Nigel and it turned out I was right, somehow it was all my fault.
