Day 3 out of Bath was a quick descent out of the Uni and then a monster climb of over 800 ft and although this was meant to be an easy 99 miler. It was certainly not easy. Highlights were crossing the Severn Bridge, Symonds Yat although that was followed by a short cut follow a road closure which was double grippy up and down and was full of dustcart.
A Costa stop in Ross and a nice run along the Wye along the double grippy Hole in the Wall road. A flag wave by my mother in law just after Hereford was a welcome stop. The final 22 miles was on my own to Ludlow Racecourse where we were camping
A tedious but flattish 3000 ft day across the Cheshire plains punctuated by a couple of crashes and close calls in the traffic though no damage except grazes.
Cheshire certainly lived up to its price tag with McLaren and Rolls Royce dealerships adjacent to one another. The weather is superb but was very cold this morning and it took a good 15 miles to warm up.
We are now at Haydock Park and have been joined by Mark Colbourne Paralympic Gold medallist who now cycles for fun and the Dulux Dog called Lewis Hamilton.
A cold start and traffic awaits tomorrow.
