Day 2 (Challenge 4 Change to Barlborough)

FullSizeRenderDespite the weather forecast it turned out to be another hot and dry one.

We left Challenge 4 Change and headed through Manchester and Stockport before following the A6 through High Lane and Disley. We then turned off towards Chinley and. Chapel-en-le Frith, which is where the hills started.

To their credit every cyclist completed every hill. One of the most scenic is actually the steep downhill through Winnats Pass. We actually saw people cycling up it – great effort!

Oh and Dan had another puncture – he’s leading the way at the moment.

The very hot hilly day ended at the Ibis in Barlborough. It should be an early night for all as its going to be a long cycle to Huntingdon tomorrow.
