Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 11th March 2020

Not many of these dark rides left now. Your favourite sloth could count them on the toes of one foot. I think we all know what this means? ……yes, that’s right! you’re running out of time to use those fancy lights your partner bought you for Christmas. So, make a big show of getting them on charge for this Wednesday - or risk socks and “grooming products” for Christmas 2020.

The forecast looks good, so see you outside of Priory School at 18:00 ( new members welcome ).

Sunday Club Ride: 8th March 2020

The magnificent Cheddar Gorge is the main feature of this weeks ride. A challenging climb, but one for which you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views over the Somerset levels, a café stop at Sweets, and a nice easy return leg. What’s not to like!

Meetup outside Priory School at 09:00 ( New members welcome )

Sunday Club Ride: 1st March 2020

A nice easy route to Sweets this week. The plan is to tempt people out of hibernation, on this, the first day of the meteorological Spring. See you outside Priory at 09:00. ( Apologies for the late posting ).

Wednesday Evening Ride: 26th February 2020

The forecast looks pretty good this Wednesday. So, if you’re suffering from a bit of cabin fever following a couple of stormy weekends, why not put your lights on charge and come along for a midweek ride? Don’t worry if you haven’t been out for a while, it’s a nice easy route this week.

Sunday Club Ride: 23rd February 2020

With just a week to go before the end of the meteorological winter, opportunities to bag some “summer smile” giving “winter miles” are fast running out. If your winter mile count isn’t where you’d like it to be, take action now. Dig out your gloves and overboots, and join us for this Sundays ride out to Farrington Gurney. I can’t promise you a named storm – but we should be good for a bit of ordinary drizzle. See you outside Priory at 09:00.

Wednesday Evening Ride: 12th February 2020

Looks like this Wednesday will be the calm between two storms. So, why not take advantage of this window of opportunity, and join us for a midweek ride.

This week’s route is an old club favourite, the “Rob Special”. It’s pretty flat, but you can make it flatter still by dodging the Brent Knoll climb ( carry on around the knoll and meet the ride coming back ) and the toll road.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 5th February 2020

Once again conditions are looking pretty good for the Wednesday ride. Dry and virtually windless, say the Beeb. Add in a couple of good drying days before hand, and you've got yourself all the ingredients for a nice ride around. So, why not get those lights on charge and treat yourself to a midweek ride.

Start time 18:00 outside Priory School
