Day 3 - South Molton to Cheddar

rain 12 °C

After burning out our brakes in the crazy descents through Devon and Cornwall straight out of the blocks on Day 3 we encountered the climbs of Exmoor. It seemed even when we had had enough and tried to by-pass at Chris's request we just found steeper and steeper hills.

That said the views from Exmoor were spectacular and (almost) worth the climb.

After a soggy first half of the day we freewheeled down from exmoor we found a very warm pub for lunch to gear ourselves up for the Quantock hills an area of outstanding natural beauty, it was just a shame that this happens to mean they haven't built any flat roads yet.

With all the hills behind us for the day we set off in to the Somerset levels with the light fading and weary legs, landing in Cheddar ready for shower and bed.
