Day Four

Much better day. Nigel’s shoulder wasn’t quite so painful this morning so we decided that a bike ride in the sunshine would be preferable to a trip to A and E.


We left our excellent B and B in Higham on the Hill at about 9.30 and headed north on NCR 52. Lovely quiet lanes and roads, all well way-marked and lots of other cyclists sharing cheery greetings. We took it slowly with several rests.

After coffee, we turned L onto NCR 63 which goes through the National Forest. A great cycle route off road on a disused railtrack but we were very careful not to skid!

We have now safely arrived at the Premier Inn in Burton-on-Trent. Tomorrow the plan was to follow NCR 68 to Ashbourne but we will see how the shoulder is in the morning.
