DAY6 Rugby-Solihull 57.5km(England UK)
Google Map sometimes gives me a tough test.
When it tells me to make a turn right, there’s no route…what can I do?
Or when I have done as I was told to, I may get into trouble.
It’s just like Alice In Wonderland falling into a hole chasing a weird rabbit.
In a round-about today, there were 3 lanes and also it’s under construction.
There was a sign board which showed the direction.
But the direction which I wanted to go was shut for the construction.
The sigh board suggested the de tour.
As I checked on Google Map, the route was 7 km longer than I had planned!
NCR(National Cycle Route) runs mostly along the canal.
There are some gates to keep motor cycles from coming in.
But for me who pushes a buggy, it is nothing but a stupid hurdle.
Today three gentlemen (all are 60yrs or older) helped me lift up to go beyond the gate.
In a gate, I unloaded all the gear from a buggy and lifted an empty one beyond the gate and load the gear again.
When I run on the normal highway and there’s no sidewalk with a narrow shoulder, I run on the right side of the highway.
Cars come up just in front of me which scares me.
When a car come up on the left lane behind me, another car coming from the front reduces its speed and wait a while till the car on the left lane goes by.
It’s not fun anyway.
Another flat tire again! What a thorn!!
Muddy trail gave me a hard time.
It’s not easy to go on soft ground.
My shoes were also covered with mud.
Apparently everything is so stressful but I need some time to think the meaning of it one by one.
It always comes back to the basic idea…why do I was born and live my life?
Finally I finished my run at a hotel established 1887 in Solihull.
