Day 3 - Is there any way out of here?

Set off nice and early after a good breakfast for the 4 mile trip into Bristol (on the A38) to follow it for the next 70 mile. The only signs we could find pointed to Bristol, which meant we went around in circles for a while (sound familiar to anyone at work). After a small sightseeing detour to see the Clifton suspension bridge (avoiding the red light area - Lee had to rub his own Sudacrem in!!) we eventually found the A38 again...... only to lose it again in Gloucester. This time it cost us 5 mile extra mileage, but the positive was we actually had a tail wind. We should have known we were going in the wrong direction!!! (This challenge will now be know as Land's End to John O'Groats and a bit extra - Andy F, Does this count as the lap of honour you requested)

Thanks to Uncle David for the board and lodging.
