STAGE 4: LUDLOW RACECOURSE TO HAYDOCK PARK RACECOURSE

If there is an ‘easy day’ then this is it as day 4 has the least amount of climbing of all the days on the ride

Overview

By this point you will be well in the rhythm of the ride. Setting off with the sun rising over the hills, you will cross the edge of the Stiperstones hill before hitting the Shropshire and Cheshire plains around lunchtime. This is where the ride flattens out significantly and you can push out some steady miles in the peloton. The landscape becomes more suburban as the route passes between Manchester and Liverpool on the approach to Haydock Park and your next camp for the night.
