Day 3: Taunton to Bristol – approx. 60 miles

Day 3 - Tiverton to Chepstow

Today should be a relief from the relentless hills of Devon and Cornwall as we enter the Somerset levels (actually I’ve coped much better with the hills and really enjoyed the riding – obvs I am a cycling legend!)

It’s a shame the DA route doesn’t ride through Chedder Gorge or Glastonbury but we have a long way to go and limited time to achieve it.  That said I am not going to go all the way through Cheddar and not see the Gorge so I will ride that and work out how to get to the hotel from there.

Will be looking out for some Cider to take on with us…The itinerary has changed from that originally billed and today is shorter finishing in Bristol. This means that there is the opportunity to cycle Cheddar Gorge with no impact on the day – I’ve never seen it and would like to view it.

We also give a wide berth to Crewkerne (where my cousin Andrew lives the dream – big shout out to the family), Wells and Wooky Hole, all worth a visit – will just have to come back…its just so far from Civilization! Fortunately we also miss Weston Super-Mare (it always sounded so exotic until I got a job surveying the Job center there…its not a prosperous town, but may of course have changed since…I’m not going to go back to find out!)
