Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in England on Tuesday, 30th-July-2019. Towyn to Shawbirch. 71 Miles. With a weather warning in place for thunder and lightning today, I was on the road nice and early in a bid to beat it! Which wasn’t hard, those blooming seagulls were squawking away from about 3am!
Although, as it turned out I never saw any thunder or lightning! However I did see plenty of showers however, but not until this afternoon.
The morning started off the same as yesterday had finished, cycling along the coast. Which unfortunately didn’t last too long, and I was soon back on the main roads, which I don’t mind!
The ride into Chester was nice, once again I was back on that national cycle route 5.
At least I’ve managed to get to more or less where I wanted to be tonight, although I had intended camping!
It was raining and as I stopped under a tree to check the route to a campsite, I spotted a Travelodge across the road! Well, with the rain chucking it down it was too tempting!
Should be in Birmingham tomorrow and possibly get my Brooks saddle sorted out.
