Day 4 bristol to Ludlow

We left Bristol with full bellies and clear skies. Amazing route out under the Clifton suspension bridge, fortunately we didn't need to climb to go over it. Lovely ride through and then over the jaw dropping Severn bridge.

Into Wales, although only briefly as we climbed out of chepstow and into Gloucestershire. The route followed Offa's dyke for a bit before entering the forest of dean, splendid scenery coming out of the forest.

The ride undulated through to Hereford, where surprisingly the legs felt strong.

Bit of publicity on the local BBC radio station which was slightly surreal before heading off towards Leominster and a surprisingly tough 11 miles to Ludlow, with a lovely welcome at our b&b of the night,
