I felt awful when I woke up and a little sick. I think that the last few days had really taken a lot out of me. Thankfully I knew that I was in for a fairly short day today. I packed my bags then went to have breakfast. However, it was groups only till (obviously they are more important here than individuals!). Not that it really mattered because I was not in any rush to get going but it was annoying that I had to hang around with nothing to do. Anyway, I had breakfast then got going at about .
The road from the youth hostel is unmade and not at all road bike friendly. I had no power in my legs at all, presumably from not eating the night before. At
I gradually felt better as the day went on and due to the short distance that I had to cover and the fact that the youth hostel at Bridges did not open till I just rolled along at a slow pace and making frequent stops. I arrived at Bridges just before it opened and was not at all tired. After three tough days it was nice to have an easy day and hopefully I should feel quite fresh tomorrow.
My parents do not live far away from Bridges so they came over with my younger brother and we had a meal at a nearby pub, which was nice.
At the youth hostel I met a guy named Martin who was also doing End to End and would arrive in JOG a few days after me. We had a good chat and as it would turn out I would bump into him again later.
