We arrived safely at Manchester and quickly collected our luggage. However going through the Nothing to declare exit was fun. With two packed bikes on one trolley and four large bags on another trying to get through the narrow exit and three doors was a little challenging. Tony in the end decided to take the two bikes off the trolley and push the bikes with the trolley through the exit. Once passed the final doors trying to put the bikes back on the trolley and sort out the other bags we heard this recorded voice "Please move you are in a restricted area!".
Martin was a little late collecting us due to the fact that he could only go 60 mph in the van compared to his usual 70 plus mph. It didn't matter as it gave us time to get a drink and sort ourselves out.
After loading the van we headed back to Towcester. Sure was cold compared to what we had got used to but at least the sun started to shine.
We caught up with some shut eye in the afternoon and had a quiet evening catching up with Martin.
