So all can be said about today is national train strike! & we needed to get to Newcastle upon Tyne for our 200 mile ride up to Edinburgh. Cycled up to MK station - fingers crossed 🤞🤞 got a train to London. First step success. Got to Kings Cross, our train had been cancelled, 😮 but very lovely man managed to get us & our bikes on an earlier train. So by hook or crook we made it to Newcastle.. beautiful hotel right next to the Tyne River with amazing views. What I love about Newcastle is the Tyne bridge / a scaled down version of Sydney harbour Bridge. Brings back memories. Plus great view of castle #1 Newcastle castle. Fab meal at Quayside then off to find a bike shop tomorrow 🤞🤞
