Looks like Steve missed the turning for Gonerby Services now the A1 is realigned and had to backtrack through Grantham. Whilst most of us would curse, it is a few extra miles at least.

Nice post from Steve's brother on Kurt's fb feed.  I always knew the stories about his mother, but that's the first I've heard of a sibling.

Enjoy your day on the bike, ride far and safe.

I hope it's the tracker playing silly buggers coz the Ivan-o-Matic is showing Steve stopped in Grantham for three hours ???

Still there after 4 hours? Seems to either be the tracker or something is amiss?

Must be tracker problems.

Not tracker problems it seems, just needed a break. Moving now heading for home.

Had a ride out this morning to Saxilby, Lincolnshire. Waited at roadside, kept checking tracker and then he appeared!

A round of applause and a cheer from me, and then he was gone. A nice northerly on his back.

Then a car stopped to ask if I was ok and asked if I needed help! Which was nice, there are some good people out there. I then proceeded to tell them about Steve's World Record attempt, they drove off shaking their heads in disbelief! ;)
