11am Sunday morning sat on my bike just by the Clifton Suspension Bridge. My aim is to complete 100 miles in a week. Currently standing at 53. It’s going to have to be a long one.
Windy and slightly wet day ahead, but hey, if I was a fair weather cyclist I’d never actually cycle, especially in England. So joined by my friend and cycling enthusiast Leo we made a plan to get over a slightly larger bridge to the one in front of us, the Old Severn Bridge, (that had been shut the day before because of extreme winds). This was our pathway to Wales.
Here’s a little photo journal of the trip. 63 miles of wonderful cycling. Great roads, great views. Just a joy. It wasn’t easy and by the end I knew all my reserves were gone, but what a way to go over target and complete 117 miles this week.
4 Hours 37 Minutes.
13.7mph Average Speed.
