Some of the trail went literally through the active zones, with the ground smoking beneath our wheels.

The trail was amazing ‘Sadie’ did very well considering the tyre thickness. Ended in a idilic Lake which was unfortunately contaminated so no swimming.

Encountered a lovely lady that took a interest in our trip then kindly assisted us in getting water from some local campers. Met Gavin from Portsmouth, but lives in Bristol, crazy small world!! He is cycling for three charities please see his blog here.
