Day 4

Having survived the night at strange holiday park in west huntspill, the 4 of us set off again, heading for Bristol.

After a nice route though orchards and a disused railway, (including a very dark tunnel) we hit Belmont hill to get us over Clifton Suspension Bridge which was amazing.

After a celebratory coffee we said our good byes to Pete and headed north to the Severn bridge. A light rain shower, a couple of photos and a 2 mile ride across the Severn estuary and we were into Chapstow for nice healthy Greggs for lunch.

As it was getting on and we were only half way, again we opted to change our route and hit an A road. Turned out to be a great shout as it was the road through the middle of the Wye valley which had some awesome long downhills and stunning scenery.

After the Wye valley we headed through Monmouth and then a long drag up to Hereford. After 86 miles and a climb of 6475ft we finally rolled in at 8.30pm in the dark. We were all ruined and ordering fish and chips was an ordeal because we couldn’t think straight.

If you’re passing through Hereford than check out Batterlious… great fish and chips but then that could have just been the tiredness.
