Rapha's Festive 500 - Day 3

Day 3 - Thursday, Dec 29th - 60 miles
The wind continues to blow and the rain has returned, although rather more fitfully today.

I've decided to change direction, heading west through Kidderminster and over Clows Top towards Tenbury Wells, where my sister-in-law lives.

Today's rain is more showery, with drier spells. It's not fun as such - especially riding the uphill slog out of Bewdley - but it's not quite as dreich as the first day.

Clows Top really does live up to its name, with the clouds literally scraping the tops of the hills.

Turning back at Mamble, I realise how strong the wind has become and it certainly makes the journey home a lot easier than the ride out!

70 miles to go...
