The route designed by Paul Stone took us out through St Georges across he A370 to Puxton. turning left at Sandford and again at Churchill we weaved our way back to Congresbury. It was our arrival at Claverham that saw the heavens open and torrential rain come down. Onwards and very much upwards we continued our plight through Clevedon along the coastal road to Portishead where Paul had a special treat called Naish Hill planned in. Rain sweat and tears along with a creaky bottom bracket and 6.7% later I was no longer a Naish virgin !
The journey home was a welcome one, and by unanimous decision the ride was cut slightly short as better to be safe than sorry. Thanks for a great route Paul with some great personal challenges and I look forward to more of the same hopefully minus the water next week.
