|Start of the day in Playley Green|
|5 miles in and it was time to take off the gilet & windstopper gloves|
|Beautiful weather all day|
Following lunch I followed a section of the national cycle network that took me off the roads for a change. Although I was initially concerned about taking the bike off-road it turned out to be quite a decent surface and made for a good change in pace. In fact the conditions were probably better than some of the roads I would encounter later in my ride!
|A bit of off-road action|
|The bike path followed the river Severn|
|Bridge over the Severn|
|Jodrell Bank meant I was nearly home|
