On Bike! ‘End to End’ over England
Karen Vedder tells the tale of two San Juan Island couples who rode from the southwest corner of England to the northwest corner of Scotland, a distance of 1,350 miles.
That would be like one of us hopping on a bike in Bellingham with all our gear and peddling to Alaska. It also has the same changes in latitudes, in thinking of climate conditions. Vedder noted, “We followed spring up the island for two months.”
Vedder will explain in her presentation everything from what they packed to how surprised they were of the support England gives its multi-use trails.
When asked how this trip began, Vedder replied; “My husband Jim and I had previously experienced the magic of walking from England’s Irish Sea Coast to the North Sea Coast following the C to C Path. We knew we had to return.”
And so they started planning the hugely successful trip they made one year ago. Come hear her spin the wheels again at the Grange Wednesday, March 12.
