LEJOG Day 3 Progress
Day 3 LEJOG - Tuesday 15th September 2020
We knew this was coming but the climb out of Tavistock onto Dartmoor was tough but once up there the views were incredible - except for the clouds in the distance. And then it was raining - who forecast that? Well it is Dartmoor.
This was only a short ride at just over 30 miles but was incredibly difficult with very steep (25%) ups and downs plus very narrow lanes with too many cars.
We finally ended up at Widecombe (of Fair fame) for a Pastie lunch.
More hills until we arrived at Moretonhampstead a bit later than planned. Nevertheless we decided to do a few miles of the next days trip (70 plus miles) to make it easier. The climb out of Moreton was a two mile slog but we did it and Charlie picked us up to take us back to the Old Post House.
Dinner was at the Globe in Chagford a lovely but busy village.
