No light on in it.


I see he has just moved quite a bit after the tracker not moving for nearly 20 mins. I hope it's just a dickie bit of kit.

Whitchurch is another issue.
Always better for the normal LEJOGer to go through the centre of town on the old road as it's shorter and there's shops and facilities.

Maybe quicker to do the bypass. Good road.

Cycled through the town a few times, and driven that way in the old days, but since the bypass was built, the best way to drive is round the bypass.

If he is following the same route as last time he going to head to Market Drayton, then Nantwich and Middlewich

OK. So as the tracker now shows him at Whitchurch he's taking a different route then.

He's now into Whitchurch - more or less - but unless the schedule posted by FF is wrong, he's an hour and ten minutes down.
