The fourth leg of Liz’s diary sees our hero cross the pennines on a gruelling 60-mile dash from Leeds to Manchester, taking in some of the Reporter Series’s patch along the way!
DAY FOUR: Today we rode from Leeds to Manchester – and I was awarded the yellow jersey for my determination to complete the course!
It was a 60 mile journey, but Holme Moss Hill was a killer to get up. It was worth it, however, as there was a fantastic view at top – and it was obviously great going down the other side!
My legs are now tired and extremely painful – I’ve got a massive tub of sudocrem and am under the doctor’s watchful eye.
All in all, though, it was a great day, so onwards to Leicester tomorrow.
Keep checking back for regular updates on Liz’s journey.
