Day 7. 85 miles.
Can you believe that HALF of the cycle of the length of the UK is cycling through Scotland? HALF! Within 5 miles of the whole route Yellow Brick tracker I crossed the border. My course zig-zagged around the mountain ranges of Scotland which you can see from my tracked route but then once I crossed the border near Gretna Green my route was better VMG (Velocity Made Good: www.velocitymadegood.co.uk) which is a yacht racing expression for taking the optimum route towards your goal – maximizing efficiency and effectiveness.
