  • 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)­=wtd­836?code=aokpv5-bkZ9KgyE0xX2ho2oS7a80u-T­ZTIQ2nk-G6EsTPZjPwU

    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.
