This weeks ride was a re run of a route first cycled in January when the weather was a bit nippier but only just! Ten riders set off from Priory at 9 am and included our new young rider Ben on his first outing with the wheelers and only his second week in the saddle!
Heading out through St Georges and under grey skies we crossed the A370 and over a couple of small climbs through the charming villages of Christon and Loxton. With cake on our minds we quickly got into formation and flew through Wedmore up over Mudgley Hill to arrive at Sweets Café for Tea and Cake.
Feeling refreshed we continued on our journey in a southerly direction towards Bridgwater and then on to Woolavington when the heavens opened. Soaking wet but with the wind behind us we headed home via Burnham seafront and Lympsham. This weeks ride was a great day of PR’s with several members beating there best times on Strava. Because of the tail wind the ride averaged 17.7 Mph over a 52 mile route climbing 1800ft.
Well done all who joined us especially Ben who could be a Cavendish in the making.
The Wheelers meet every Wednesday evening and Sunday morning why not join us for a ride.
