The Ride - Day 3 (11th May '06)

A brief stop on the Somerset Levels

A long day of 92 miles, but weather was glorious and countryside beautiful. We left Devon and crossed in to Somerset. The Somerset levels were a relief but soon after Cheddar we had a 1.5 mile climb, fortunately lunch was at the top.

After lunch we rode across a beautiful wooded valley towards Bristol. The Avon Gorge cycle way proved challenging but we finally crossed the Avon and the Severn into Wales. We passed the pretty ruin of Tintern Abbey and arrived at our hotel to waiters with trays of chilled orange juice - nice!

Tintern Abbey our final place of rest

Well done so far - still a way to go but what an achievement when you reach your final destination.
Keep on peddling.

My husband is on the same trip so I am following your day to day account. Would be lovely to see some more photos especially of my gorgeous husband Colin. I hope you are looking after him!
