Stage 2 – Track and Map – St Wenn to Okehampton


This was the toughest stage of the whole trip for several reasons: 1) The length of the stage and the terrain 2) A lack of planning on my part 3) Inexperience with the GPS 4) Over ambition!

Yesterday I went further than I needed to and visited Bodmin. Today, after cycling 28 miles, I went past Bodmin again! Very soul destroying. Just look at the route I took. I just punched in the lunch destination into the GPS and I think it routed me the fastest way by car!

This was always going to be a tough day with a total of 120 miles to cover and two climbs to 1,000 feet in the first stage and I made it worse by not putting enough time into planning. Rule 2: Half a hour’s planning can save you hours of cycling.
