Shrewsbury to Frodsham 81km
The landscape in North Shropshire and South Cheshire is wonderfully flat. It a cyclists dream. Today was strange because there was hardly any wind. It was strange because over the last 10 days I have grown accustomed to the buffeting and noise of the wind. Today I could here the birds singing.
There are some interesting houses in this area. I love this brickwork
And these patterns
The hills were the bridges. This one from over the Llangollen canal.
This one from a bridge over a disused railway line
I thought it fantastic. You buy an old station and then lay your own track complete with signals and level crossing gates. I think the owners are definitely railway enthusiasts!
Lots of interesting villages
The River Dee is in flood and roads are closed. Happily not on our route.
Just for a change we had some rain in the afternoon. Oh well, life wouldn’t be the same without it I suppose.
Again the hotel found somewhere for us to store the bikes in a safe and dry place. At every place we have stayed they have gone out of their way to help us. It is a lovely reminder that the world is full of helpful folks.
