A Loop around Loxton 24
Need to get a ride in this morning of just over 23 miles to get the 100 miles for the week.  I did notice one of the Old Gits has just started using Strava, the GPS sports app and he did one yesterday along a route I had never considered before but looked i...

Burnham on Sea in the rain 25
Although the weather forecast said rain later, went out anyway.  Went to Burnham via Brean and Berrow and settled in the Bay View Cafe for tea and toast just as it started raining. Bay View Cafe When tea and toast is £1.60, any wonder that this is the tea s...

To Burnham with Andy 30
What a difference a day makes!   Yesterday, it was blowing a hooligan out there, today, sunshine and not too bad at all.  Storm Doris has gone elsewhere thank goodness.  Went out with Andy today, one of the Old Gits.  The ride took us down to Mark, across t...

With the Old Gits, Reverse Route 22
Old Gits ride today, it is certainly a day for waterproof clothing, the cloud is very low and the forecast is for rain during the morning.  And they were right.  12 Old Gits met up at the northern end of the prom and cycled out to Caffle's Garden Centre via...

Went Wrong in Wendover 41
A good day for cycling today, dry, not much wind and a target in mind.  A cafe out near Wedmore that has, I think, some interesting bike racks.  Checked the ordnance survey before leaving, confident in the knowledge of its location.  Over confident perhaps,...

Out with the Old Gits 27
Tuesday, Old Gits day.  12 hardy souls braved the cold wind today and did the normal run to the Caffles Garden Centre at Hewish.  We were joined there by another OG who has been off for 6 months with illness; it was really good to see him.  The weather wasn...

Mark Meander 25
Such a different day to yesterday, about 8 degrees warmer though the east wind is still howling over the Mendips.  Forecasters are talking about gales in the west and Wales but nothing like that going on out there.  Out with the Old Gits tomorrow so don't w...

By train to Nailsea 32
Another chilly day with a strongish easterly wind.  Did not fancy cycling into that for any distance so elected to catch the train to Nailsea and ride home with the wind behind for at least the majority of the way.  At the same time, it was a good opportuni...
