Stage 5 – Track and Map – Whitminster to Bromyard


This stage was always going to be fun as Tricia was going to join me as my first co-rider of the trip.

It started with a fantastic picnic provided by Tricia.

We didn’t start cycling until after 3pm but only had around 40 miles to do. I met Tricia in 2002 when we were part of a fantastic group of people who cycled across the Yucatan in aid of Acorns Children’s Hospice. This is documented here. We got on really well and many of us have stayed in contact. Another co-rider, Adrian who is to join me on the next stage, is from the same Yucatan group.

You can see from the profile that the stage got more difficult towards the end and 5 miles or so out of Bromyard Tricia’s husband, Alan, caught up with us in the car and the temptation was to much for Tricia so I did the last few miles on my own. Tricia and Alan were at my accommodation when I arrived and we went out for a great meal. A great end to a great day and real contrast to yesterday. Thanks guys!
