Do we know what the rough plan is regarding route? Just wondering if we are planning the 60-70 miles with no obvious breaks? Don't mind but would need to bring enough water/food, etc., and then squirrel it away in my back pockets. Then again, a short cafe stop after 40 miles might be a nicer social thing to do...and I won't have to work out how to wazz on the move
Route will be rough but there is definitely a plan
In 'villages we will go through' terms, we'll be going Hampton Bishop - Holme Lacey - Kings Thorn - Wormelow - Orcop - Bagwyllidiart - Kentchurch - Skenfrith - Llanfihangel Crucorny (entry to Gospel Pass) - Llanthony - Capel-y-ffin - Hay on Wye and then back to Hereford via the quiet road.
Apart from in Hay-on-Wye where there is a really good cake shop, there aren't really any cafes but there is a handy pub at Llanthony where you can refill your bottle and buy chocolate etc. (it was also 'The Slaughtered Lamb' in An American Werewolf in London
). Bottom line is take some cash but also plan to be pretty self sufficient with some food in your pockets.
