Finally the day arrived when the alarm clock woke me at 5am to get ready to get on a bus for the most northerly point in Ireland, Malin Head. The bus journey was long with brief stops in Sligo and just outside Bundoran, Co Donegal. Knowing that the bus journey was long and going to deaden our legs it was decided shortly before the trip to do the first 25 or so miles on that evening and cycle to Buncrana. This meant that we would get an opportunity to stretch our legs that evening as well as getting a good head start on the trip and shorten the road for Day 1 to 70 odd miles instead of 95.
