All riders accounted for as we arrive in Portsmouth after 82 pretty tough miles. We have been fed and watered and shown amazing hospitality by the sailors of HMS Excellence at their barracks in Portsmouth harbour. We are currently sinking a few cold beers at their bar “Moby Dick” where it’s a pound a pint!!! Joe Martin has said it would be rude not to have a least a couple as we have not seen prices like this since university.
The ferry leaves at 10pm and with 4 to a cabin and a 6:30am arrival a good nights sleep is by no means guaranteed.
Looking forward to breakfast at Pegasus Bridge and trying to remember to cycle on the right side of the road.
Day one in the bank but a long way to go….
