Sunday Club Ride : 3rd October 2021

With the weather on the turn, choice of route is a little problematic this week.

It looks like it may be dry in the morning with a South Westerly wind building into the afternoon.

So, here is the proposed route for this Sunday; trying to avoid the heights of the Mendips, potentially muddy roads after the rain and hacking back into a 30MPH headwind on the return leg.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School.

Saturday Club Ride : 2nd October 2021

Update : Unfortunately, there is heavy rain forecast from 8 o'clock, I think we'll have to scrub the ride this morning. In fact, it's currently 7am and it's raining already, so I'm going to assume the Met Office may have accidentally got the forecast right.

With Autumn well and truly arrived, the weather could be good or it could be bad this Saturday. Bearing in mind that this is supposed to be an introductory standard ride, if the weather is worse than expected and raining at the start time, the ride may be called off.

Otherwise, here is the proposed route for this Saturday.

It's probably wiser to stick to reasonable roads, and give the potentially muddy tracks a miss.

Meet up at 08:30. outside Priory School.
