One exciting byproduct of the Ride is picking up news of other rides and riders. I have mentioned Katrina Littlechild and Cognac going John O'Groats to Lands End to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, BHF. They are about to reach the southern end of the Pennine Bridleway and start on down the Sabrina Way. I am looking forward to meeting them in a couple of weeks time.
Thanks to Katrina I have learned of Nora Kragabakk who is riding from the New Forest to Newcastle upon Tyne (arriving there this Thursday) on Juniblest. And thanks to Basha O'Reilly of the Long Riders Guild I have been contacted by Nirwan Arsuka (there is an English section on his site) who is preparing for a ride right across Indonesia - a SERIOUSLY long distance.
Long distance riding is mostly rather below the news media's radar. I hope I can take the Ride Round England right up into their full view!
