Chester

How much difference a dry day makes.

We are booked in at a Travelodge in Chester for the next two nights so we only got going from our little pod at about eleven o'clock.  After a short section on the A495, where we crossed back into Wales, we headed northwards on some lovely country lanes and quiet roads.

Crossing back into Wales.

Quiet country lanes - just what we were looking for after yesterday's busy A roads.

Clouds higher in the sky - our first dry day of cycling for yonks.

The rivers and streams all flowing strongly with signs of how high the water reached after the heavy rains.

About ten kilometers south of Chester at the village of Aldford we stopped at the Grosverner's Arms, a smart gastropub, for a very nice sandwich and a small beer.

A half of bitter for me and a half of "half and half" for Leigh.

Then it was an easy ride into Chester and a day of the bicycles to work and rest and do a bit of site seeing..

Today's ride: 36 km (22 miles)
Total: 1,220 km (758 miles)
