Today I cycled 47 miles from Bridgnorth to Evesham, making 388 miles in total so far. As I feared this was the worst day so far.
I started with 11 miles of hills, rain and headwinds along a busy road. When I did escape on to side roads for a few miles the hills were even higher, but there were fine views from the ridge. By noon the hills were easier, the rain had stopped and the last 25 miles were on quiet roads.
My legs were like lead and I struggled, with lots of stops and pushing. I’m staying at the The Northwick Hotel, a nice riverside hotel in Evesham.
Many thanks to the committee members who have been out doing more leafleting today.
