Poole to Burnham-on-sea
I fought my way through a busy Yeovil to emerge on the otherside unscathed I then sped downhill into Illchester which is a small little village next to the river Yeo. From Illchester I headed for Somerton cycling through the beautiful Somerset levels. I climbed out of the Somerset levels and climbed further up a ridge which seemed to go on forever through Ashcott however the views over Somerset were extraordinary, after enjoying a great downhill i reached a roundabout that crossed over the M5. On the roundabout my pump fell of my bike and was run over by a van which could prove fatal if i were to pick up a puncture so far from home. Burnham-on-sea was now only a few miles away.
