I turn for home today. Its another day like Day 1. 55 miles. Rolling terrain with a couple of stiff climbs. The first is literally out of the door. I leave my mom and dads and 50 metres later, BOOM! I’m climbing without a warm up and full of breakfast.
The route meanders through the lanes to Denbigh and Ruthin. I climb over the Horsehoe pass from the back and I’ve opted to descend the Old Horseshoe rather than the main road. Just for a change I think. I can stop in Llangollen to refuel before the final kicker over to Chirk and into Oswestry for my digs for the night.
Lots of climbing again. Tough day regardless.
