Safely arrived in Upton. Bit knackered but no disasters. Thanks to everybody who got up early this morning to give us such a wonderful send off from Squitchey Lane. Also thank you to everyone for their fantastically generous donations and for all the encouragement and support you have given us.
We had a really good ride today. The weather was perfect and we have been through some lovely countryside and lots of picturesque villages (see pic above). We picked up NCR 5 at Bedbroke which took us to Bloxham. Some was off road and quite tricky after the rain but Nigel coped really well. After Bloxham, there were more hills and we were getting tired so the last part was quite tough.
Tomorrow we’re going to Leamington and will stay with Nick and Ann. Not so far as today and maybe less hills (some hope)
Relaxing now in this lovely garden and Poppy our host is cooking our dinner – what luxury
