Wednesday Evening Club Ride : 17th July 2024

Here's a route for this Wednesday evening. Can't remember what start point we're up to so I've gone for Priory, using the new path over to Clevedon.


Just to reiterate Duncan's advice from Saturday while the surface is generally very good there are a couple of patches of deeper gravel on bends - take care.

Meet up at Priory School, at 6pm.

Saturday Club Ride – 13th July 2024

Here is the route for this Saturday's club group ride.

I thought we could take a look at the new cycling link between Weston and Clevedon.

On the way back there's an opportunity for a cafe stop at Yatton, to another cafe I've never been to. We'll see the level of interest on the day.

On the way back we'll use the Strawberry Line link towards Sandford

Meet up at 8:30am, at Priory School

Saturday Club Ride : 6th July 2024

Note. The start time this week is 9am

Here is the proposed route for this week's Saturday morning club ride.

We plan a later start time this week, to ride in company with the France Expedition as far as Winscombe

As is befitting the English summer and the first Saturday ride of July, the weather doesn't look great; possibility of showers and a bit of a breeze (Although this may change over the next few days. Who knows).

The published route is a little shorter than usual, but we could always add a loop around the coast road and Kewstoke on the way back.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School
