Hambleton to Worksop

What a beautiful sunny, autumnal start to the day. Lovely, quiet flat roads all the way to Dainty Doris's Café for a fantastic and enormous breakfast.

We then picked up the Transpennine Trail again and carried on along mainly quiet flat disused train lines.

We took a detour to see Connisbrough Viaduct, a huge impressive disused railway bridge. We cycled along the base of it....

..... and then took a path to the top of it, but the walls were very high,so difficult to get a good view.

After that it got a bit crazy and our route turned into a Tour de France style roller coaster. Disclaimer - this is possibly an exaggeration.

I hung on over the climbs and then we had a lovely sloping descent to the outskirts of Worksop where we joined the canal.

This is where we found Sustrans route six and we took it all the way to the door of our hotel.

Dinner tonight with Tina and Matt who are driving up to see us.
