Day 7 : Bude to Porlock (80 miles)

Very misty when we got up but soon cleared to a hot sunny day with temps of 27 degs. Matt cycled 80 miles today with 1822m climbing. Matt left at 8.30 and arrived at the campsite at Porlock in Somerset at 5.15pm.

He cycled along the coastal path to Hartland, Bideford and we then had a phone call to say a spoke had broken and the spares were in the Motorhome so we met him at Asda Barnstaple so he could repair it.

He then cycled to Braunton, Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Blackmore Gate and down to Lynton & Lynmouth. He cycled along Countisbury Hill which is 3.1km long and very steep which we can vouch for as we went the same way!

The one good thing was that he thought he then had to go up Porlock Hill but turned out it was a very steep downhill – we went on the Toll Road to avoid it as it is so steep.

Looking at ALL these lovely pictures where would you have rather been today
