Day 6 - To Craven Arms - 98 miles

First 40 miles in 4 hours, last 60 in 3 hours 45 minutes

Revitalised by the loving touch of their nearest and dearest the plucky duo left Leyland with 110 miles to go to Ludlow...The progress was slow to lunch time in Frodsham where the spouses and Chris Mayer and Tall Paul were there to greet them after a 40 mile slog though Lancashire towns and villages. (Even Richard's dad found time to put down his strimmer to cheer them on).

At 2.45, following lunch at the Bears Paw and with 70 miles still to go before the end of the day the JoGLErs were greeted with a strong head wind. Before too long it started to rain, which was to settle in for the rest of the day.

With both Chris Mayer and Andrew in support, the rest of the day flew by, with only 1 puncture to spoil the spirits. The duo cut the ride 12 miles short as time was getting on.

Alan Riley met the wandering 3 in Ludlow where upon much beer and merriment was forthcoming. The day ended (as expected) in a fine Indian restaurant (Golden Moments), with a pint or two of Kingfisher.
