Land’s End to Smuggler’s Den

So, here I go! I set off from Land’s End at 9.15 in heavy fog. Everything was closed, the signpost wasn’t even up so I stopped in Sennen (about a mile up the road) for a full english breakfast. Another cyclist passed me and couldn’t believe that I was going the whole stretch on my own and with my trailer.

I jumped on the B3306 and followed it up and around the north coast to St Ives.

I sat and had a rest overlooking the town and saw a seagull swallow some big plastic thing WHOLE – he would’ve had a belly ache later.

I took a very steep one way road up and out of St Ives getting on the A3074 to Hayle and then the B3301 through Hayle and along the coast to Hell’s Mouth where I stopped for tea and fruit cake.

Another super steep climb out of Towan Cross and took the B3285 to Perranporth, arriving at 7pm and I stopped for a jacket spud with chilli.

Yet another steep climb up and out of town and I headed along a country lane towards the Smuggler’s Den Inn, where I stopped short and wild camped in a farmer’s field.

My hayfever has been playing up really badly and I only have over the counter antihistamine’s which aren’t touching it.
