Firming up the Bristol trip
Are you interested in cycling along new roads and up through the iconic Cheddar Gorge? In the second club away day, we plan to drive early to Bristol and take a 53mile route at a pace to suit the attending riders.
19th May is the date - click I’m attending and get it in your diary.
We will be asking for volunteer drivers (with racks) once again, with the view that passengers will chip in some fuel money.
Possible route here - can also plan a shorter route if required
53 miles - 2500ft ascending (700 through the gorge alone - otherwise rolling at worst)
I want this to work for everyone. So don’t sit in silence - let me know if you have any questions, ideas, concerns ....
6:30pm until 7:30pm isn’t very long.....😂😂
Not helpful I know......
Can I invite a Bristolian friend?
Thanks for organising Pat. I look forward to it and hope I have managed to get some practice in by then!!
Cheers Jeff - How long are you thinking it will take?
Yes - of course please do, any friend of your’s is a friend of mine.
Also ask him/her to take a look at the route, bit of local knowledge and all that
Looks good. Only thought on the route (and I say this not knowing Bristol at all really, apart from it is busy and takes a while to drive through it) what's the thinking re starting in the city itself vs starting somewhere more in the country? This is intended to be a constructive comment!
Good point James - I’ll check out parking and traffic. Really wanted to start in the Clifton area, but of course we could start anywhere on the circlular route.
I'm good for the 19th
As far as I know I’m good for the 19th. Riding through cheddar gorge would be great
Looks like this is going to be a great trip - will have a pre trip meeting over a beer mid April
Oh do we have to 😂😉
I'll be in for my first club trip. Luke
Looks like this is going to be a good one!
Hi Pat, happy to plan a shorter (maybe slightly slower!) route for us C riders.
In the diary , would love to come.
I do have a 4 bike carrier , happy to drive if needed.
Looking forward to it.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
