day 5 stats day 5 map

Day 5 arrived with the sound of rain on the tent roof, we’d camped under two massive oak trees so the rain didn’t seem too bad, but when we emerged we realised that the forecast storm had well and truly arrived. The next part of the ride was in torrential rain and we stopped at Newton Abbot and dripped all over the floor in Costa. A quick look at the map and we realised we were within easy reach of Plymouth, so we called Premier Inn booked a room to dry out for the night and hopped on the train to Plymouth. Top tip, if you get a room with an accessible bathroom you get a wet room that is big enough to put up two tents and dry them out!
