Day four was the most arduous leg of the trip from Plymouth to Llanberis in Snowdonia. My route taking me through Dartmoor, Glastonbury, an ascent through Cheddar Gorge and a quick visit to see my brother Andy near Cardiff, a total of 385 miles and 10 hours in the saddle. This was also the day that a young wild foal attempted to put paid to my whole trip. I was descending a steep left hander on Dartmoor, which I believe was Devil's Bridge, when it got spooked by my approach, jumped out on me and proceeded to run directly away from me. I narrowly avoided making contact with it, braking heavily, locking the rear wheel in two quick successions! Who needs ABS...? The SAM Observer November 2011
