Up bright and early this morning. Weather misty but looking promising. On the road at seven. Route profile a little spikey to start with then not too bad. After the initial few miles it all levelled out and the sun broke through. I had the Stig riding along with me, all in black though. H copied my every move. When I stood up so did he, down on the drops so was he. He even leant off his trike the same! He did move about a bit, sometimes in front or behind, and later in the day on my offside too! Never said a word all day.
Couldn’t find a campsite tonight and booked into The Millstone pub in Mellor about five miles from Blackburn.
Stopped at about 10:30 in Knutsford. I have only ever known the M6 services, but the town is quite a quaint place, with the main high street very narrow one way road. Full of interesting looking shops. Had a sausage and mash and hot chocolate in blazing sunshine. Stopped again in Nantwich and had pasta outside listening to some classic and modern guitar music.
Total miles today 114. Still the wind comes from the north or north east.
