Day 5 Leg 5 It just got all too much!
We meet Michael Shields from FareShare at Horns Garden Centre, where the weather has taken another turn for the worse. He is soaked having cycled in 12 miles from his home. There was no shelter from the weather and after a conversation with Dave in Support, the guys set off an hour late and had fallen further behind so would be 2 hours late getting into this next location.
So we set Michael off so that he 1. Didn’t stand around for 2 hours getting cold and 2.We may be able to make up some time, if we re-route the other guys to head directly to Washington. It was really nice to meet Michael and such a shame he didn’t get to ride with the others but at least the leg was completed.
