While statistics is not Joe’s favourite branch of mathematics, he really does love a good spreadsheet. On top of tracking where we end up each day, we have also been monitoring costs, mileage and a few more silly things that other cycle tourists might find useful.

Where are we now
This is a map showing the exact location of every night we have stayed on our trip. The colours represent the type of accommodation for that night. There is a live map that is updated every evening and includes the what3words (and GPS coordinates) but that isn’t ready to be published just yet!
Green = campsite
Red = wild camp
Yellow = paid bed (hotel/airbnb/guesthouse etc)
Blue = hosted
Joe is particularly proud of this!!
