A rest day today in the very nice Somerset town of Bishop's Lydeard.

The rest day. Off to Bridgewater to see
St John Street Cycles – what a place to be!
A showroom sweet-shop, full of touring bikes –
Their handbuilt Thorns, tailored to suit your likes.
Our guide, the helpful Lisa, let us try
Rohloff hub gears – we may return to buy!

A welcome rest day in which we visited SJS cycles and the West Somerset volunteer led restored railway line – excellent. Sadly diesel trains today with steam trains tomorrow when we are not here!

It rained today to clear the humidity and stave off thunder storms – we are in for a few more days of good weather now – excellent. Six days now to the next rest day at home but the terrain is a lot less challenging than the previous three.
