Saturday Club Ride – Unlikely

Although the previously forecast AM rain is no longer a thing, there has been consistently high winds forecast for Saturday morning.

With average wind speeds of over twenty MPH gusting to near forty MPH.

So, unfortunately, we don't propose to post a club ride.

However, if club member is definitely up for a ride on Saturday morning and would like to lead a club ride.

Feel free to suggest a route and the Secretary will do the necessary admin to publish it.

Sunday Club Ride : 28th November 2021

We have a shorter route this week. Everything's reduced for Black Friday!

The forecast for Sunday is for a moderate breeze and sun! Although it's not exactly toasty out there with the wind coming from the north. But it's got to be better than a turbo trainer.

I've tried to minimise our exposure to headwinds and avoid potentially muddy roads - let's see how that goes.

Café stop near Chew Valley Lake.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School.

If anyone is desperate to reach the 50 mile point, I will probably tag an extra loop onto the end of the ride, around the coast road and Sand Bay; for me that's about 15 miles / 24 km.
