Wednesday Evening Club Ride : 12th August 2020

There is a considerable degree of uncertainty over the weather this week, but here is a suggested route should the ride go ahead.

Meet up at 6pm, outside Priory School.

Note. To conform to current social distancing rules, please, if you can, bring the route with you on your Garmin/Wahoo etc. We aim to split rides up into groups of up to six, with five minutes between groups. This is necessary due to British Cycling and implications with club 3rd party insurance.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride : 5thAugust 2020

Sunday Club Ride : 2nd August 2020

At the suggestion of a few people on Wednesday, the destination this Sunday is Langport and the Wharf; the route up the slope to High Ham at the request of the Chairman. The usual café stop is reportedly open.

The route is a little longer than usual, but if we want to go to Langport, that's how far it is. Dodging the current spate of road closures isn't making it any shorter. Fingers crossed the Strava heat maps don't lead us astray.

Meet up at 9am outside Priory School

Sunday Club Ride: 26th July 2020

A ride to Mokoko in bristol this week ( Thanks to Lucas and Duncan for the collaboration ). Aside from coffee and cake, the route includes a ride over everyone’s favourite bridge, a flyby Chew Valley Lake and just enough climbing to pass for a workout. Add in the promising weather - and what’s not to like? Social distancing rules apply - if we've got more than 6 riders we'll split into smaller groups on the road.

See you outside Priory at 09:00.
