It was 1511 miles in total with both the odo and the sat-nav agreeing very closely (so the recorded mileage is accurate, only the speedo' over-reads, hmm). Biffer performed faultlessly of course. Was riding about six hours each day.
Why are the roads so busy?

Great report! Sadly there are others who like to see our beautiful countryside - it ought to be reserved for us bikers - but then others suggest they might have priority and we shouldn't be allowed on their roads. Seriously our roads are so much freer of traffic after the man tourist season. I keep out of the 'popular' Lake District roads in the tourist season but enjoy riding them later in the year.
