Sunday Club Ride: 6th December 2020

Looks a decent day Sunday, so why not come along for this Portishead Brockley Coombe route. It’s the reverse of the ride which went down rather well a few Sundays back, and offers the opportunity for coffe at Mokoko Portishead, there’s also a Costa there, and another opportunity at Brockley Fruit Stall.

Rule of 6 applies ....yada, yada, yada.

Meet up outside of Priory School at 09:00

Once again, thanks to Lucas for coming up with a cracking route for us. If you enjoyed the coffee at Mokoko Bristol last week, here’s a chance to see how the team at Portishead Mokoko compares.

For the time pressed there is a  “Sans Café” option to get you home a bit earlier.

Saturday Club Ride ?!


I've been paying attention to the weather forecast for this Saturday.


It has been getting steadily worse.


Currently it is forecast for 20+MPH winds gusting to close to 40MPH, and a coin-flip whether it will also be raining.


As I generally use 20MPH as a threshold, I'm not proposing to post a ride for this Saturday - given it's supposed to encourage newcomers to turn out and provide an easier ride for the less strong/fit members.


If anyone fancies leading a ride, please let me know by Friday afternoon , so I can post the route etc.

Usual ride arrangements, please bring route if you have the tech.

There is a possible road closure on Vole Rd, coming back from Mark, but I was able to ride through the road works a couple of days ago. There is an alternative we can take if necessary.
