Arrived safely in Leamington Spa. One or two slight hitches but no major disasters. The plan was to pick up NCR 48 after Edgehill but we managed to sail past the turning as we flew down a steep hill which of course entailed pushing the bikes back up to get ourselves back on track. This made a slightly dispiriting start to the day!
Generally the waymarking was not as good today so there was rather more stopping to read the map. There was also some really heavy downpours and Nigel’s chain fell off! On the plus side, there was some lovely sunshine between the rain and lots of quiet and beautiful lanes and paths. We navigated the tow path beside the Grand Union successfully.
Lovely to be with Nick and Ann this evening. Now dried out, clean and having a beer! Tomorrow is a city day. Warwick, Kenilworth, Coventry and Nuneaton.
