Eowyn Challenge -- Isengard to Minas Tirith with Merry and the Rohirrim

Miles travelled today: 8
Miles travelled so far: 48½ (1712½ from Bag End)

Point reached on journey: We reached the road to the Deeping Coomb and turned south to Helm’s Deep.

Very slow ones, but still. :)

I was going to try to record my speed, but I got distracted by the neighbour when I arrived back and forgot to look at my watch. Next time I'll take the stop watch then all I have to do is stop it.

If I get chance, I'll do that ride again over the weekend, then next week I'll extend the distance a little further to the picnic point three-quarters of a mile further on along the trail. I used to regularly cycle to that point, a distance of 9½ miles. From there, it shouldn't be too difficult to take a whole day and reach my goal of cycling all the way to Barmouth. At least that is the plan...
