YER TIS
I need to double check but last week they were resurfacing Wotton hill(The main road bit) Not just top dressing but full resurface.I will check it out but if it's done well then coming down it should be great fun.Not as much fun as trying to get up Old London Road without wheel spin but still fun.
I will have a word with the pub to warn them as they have a nice enclosed rear courtyard for us to sit in and put bikes in.

Apart from Wotton there are not 'that many hills'..............................................

As an aside to this ride and Last Sundays ride it might be worth just casting you eye on your saddle bags to make sure you have all your bits and they are in order.
i.e. Tube,levers,pump,split links,multi tool,puncture repair kit.Silly I know but also make sure that your new tube has a long enough valve stem we almost got caught out today when one of the valves only just peeped it's head out a bit and made fitting pump awkward.

Yes, and make sure the tube is the size it says it is on the box and that it actually fits your wheels.

Just want to say cheers for letting me join in the ride last Sunday (16th Sep) Apart from me going the wrong way and getting lost it was nice to ride with a bunch of cyclists as opposed to on my lonesome, as normal.

I won't be able to join in the next run as it is my son's 11th birthday but would definitely like to join in future rides.

Sorry to hold you all up last Sunday with my tyre issue !

Got the tyre partially inflated and rode to Halfords for a spare.

It occurred to me that the last two more serious mechanicals resulted in tyre damage

so I think is probably worth having a lightweight folding tyre in the spares kit !

Perhaps we should have a SAG wagon on every ride!

Just checked and Wotton Hill has been resurfaced and is now as smooth as a babies bum.Pub has been warned of our hopeful arrival on Sunday so the back gates will be open for us to bring our bikes into the courtyard.

Assume it's 10.00am from Costa (Bradley Stoke). Wellie boots required by the looks of the weather forecast.

Was planning to join you tomorrow as the return leg was close to home. However I took note of Sunday's weather, a mistake probably, and had a cool ride to the lakes. Should be available for a Thursday or Friday OGR, the FPO should give me a pass.
