Rapha #Festive500 Day 3.

A leisurely start to the morning, though someone had been trying to get me out of bed since 7 o'clock to go out cycling.

9am we left with a rough plan to head down towards Jodrell Bank. We needed a decent distance today to get us back on track for the #festive500

I always try to include as much traffic free riding, and the Middlewood Way is a good way to get some traffic free miles in as far as Macclesfield.

 Once in Macclesfield it was time to eat our bag of Jelly Babies.

From Macc we headed further South to Congleton before heading back up North via Jodrell Bank (which unfortunately was closed)

On the way back, I managed to get a mega puncture which involved 5 Hawthorns in one tyre.

The lovely weather faded on the way back. By Alderley Edge it was tipping it down.

A fairly big day today, but all easy cycling with no big hills.

Strava says we did 95Km which takes our total to just short of 200Km for the #festive500
