Three and a half days of riding enjoyment experiencing the Trans Pennine Trail

A great start but a quick stop! The plan to be bussed from Walkington near Beverley East Yorkshire to the start line at Southport came to a sudden halt on the M62 at Junction 21. This was Monday 04 July (American Independence Day) and far from being independent the road was chock-a-block with vehicles. Unfortunately there had been a serious road accident. However, after about an hour we had managed to creep forward far enough to slip off at J21 and circumnavigate the area returning to the M62 at J20. We glided passed the 20 mile tale back on the other side and eventually reach Southport at 1.15 pm after leaving at 8.15 that morning.
