Day 5

Harmer Hill, Shrewsbury to Preston. Only 600 meters climbing which suited myself so I could power along the flat! Richard, still troubled with knee pain and pumped with pain killers, still managed to complete the day notching up just over 80 miles. It took us just over 6 hours cycling time to complete our mileage navigating through Warrington and Wigan along the way. Our chosen route kept us on main roads which meant no nice views unfortunately! Peter once again providing food and drink along the way and once again provided some good entertainment throughout! We are getting to know the Premier Inn menu pretty well now and Peter is sharing a room with two tired bikes! Off to Carlisle tomorrow before our big push into Scotland.
