Thanks to the lovely people at Crumpets in Polruan for donating the cost of my late breakfast to @MSF_uk

Very nearly doored by somebody not looking as they got out of their car on a narrow road. Always look.

I went through No Man's Land.

Google maps claims it is more or less downhill for the next 15 km.

Hopefully I can coast downhill. (A pun worthy of @chrisenorth 😀)

Hey Plymouth. How are you?

Thanks to Jo and Tony at Plymouth tourist information office for looking after an SD card for me.

Now having haddock and chips in Plymouth. I chose the haddock because it is from Osterfjord in Norway. I've cycled past that on this trip.

Took the 3pm ferry from Cremyll to Plymouth.

Have fun. Ride a bike.

It has been roughly 7860 km (4880 miles) to Plymouth. Phew.

Plymouth Ho.

Where does the Atlantic end and The Channel begin? I decided Plymouth felt about right.

Massive thanks to Tina and Anne at Brittany Ferries for their help this evening and for upgrading me. I shall start start France well rested.

Unexpected acts of kindness can get pretty emotional at this stage in an endurance trip. Probably everything gets emotional now.
