AND HE'S OFF!




It was another beautiful Saturday morning as VeloCake converged on the nations westest point,and the end of lands, to wave off Nick on his quest to reach the John of Groats.
I took a few snaps to convey the atmosphere and excitement as he departed.
Ti Guru Jeff Jones turned up to to show his support
The pre-ride coffee supply.
Yes, that really is a very old Giro, remember them?
Coffee and biscuits, for free.
Jesus built his hotrod
Our Ulysses braves the villagers who'd turned up for a lynchin' and to run him out of town.

Looked like a nice send off!

No i know he's not shuffled off this mortal and all that!! Although by now i bet he wishes he was 'at rest'.

I'm sorry i missed the big off.I was elsewhere doing important things and that.

Well the beardy weirdy should be close to Scotland by now? They may well take Nic for their own with a big ginger beard like that.

Mike,i may well be rolling down the col de tredavoe today so keep the kettle warm young un!

Al,what back pain? 'ard me! I cycle through the pain.
