Nick’s Bike Ride – Day 11 – Burford and back!

Nick in Burford on 15th July 2010

(Unfortunately, all hotels in Burford, Nick’s planned stop for tonight, are full due to the local Air Show. Nick’s wife, Margaret, is going to meet him in Burford and drive them to Stow for the night, then drop Nick and bike back in Burford on Friday morning).

Sharyn requires proof of no cheating, so today’s photo is of me & bike in Burford this afternoon. Photo to come from same place on Friday!

Evesham to Burford 28 miles – started with steepest and highest hill of the trip. Rain and very blustery winds, but not as hard as yesterday, as not always head-on.

After climb, took the main road, where trees protected me from strong side winds. Long descent to Stow-on-the-Wold. Very wet, so pushed on up long hill past Wick Hill Hotel where Margaret and I will be staying tonight, then 9 miles to Burford.

After nice pub lunch and a look around Burford Market, Margaret took me and bike to Wick Hill Hotel, Stow. She will drop me in Burford tomorrow, so no cheating!
