Day 7 - To Rooks Bridge - 124 miles

8 hours 30 minutes cycling

At 9.50am the Joglers resumed their challenge. They would be up against it today as they needed to claw back the lost mileage of the day before. Spirits were high however and they resolved to not only get back on track but also to try and go beyond their planned destination of Cheddar.

They got off to a good start and powered through to Leominster in quick time. Having each consumed a cake the size and consistency of a half brick they continued on to Monmouth without incident. The benevolent tail wind pushed them through the Wye valley and over the M48 bridge across the Severn towards Bristol.

Turning south west into the wind progress became much slower but the dogged duo dug in diligently and cycled well into the evening finally finishing at Rooks Bridge 6 miles ahead of schedule - a good day's cycling!
