Hey, is there any more info on this weeks ride? Just wondering if I can take the pace ie: is it going to be a monster? Shocked
Do you normally post a link to the route or just estimate of length & number / severity of hills?

I take it same as usual: Costa in Tesco complex, Bradley stoke? From looks of it, I need to make sure I have enough fluids with me! Presume there's a cake stop as always?

Normal start time and place 10 from Costa Bradley Stoke. The clue about the "cake" stop is in the title, bacon baguettes @ a pub in Wotton. Though the profile of the route looks lumpy the only 2 hills proper are on the way out and there's always lots of hanging around at the top . Fluids wise 1 bottle and refill if @ the pub should be plenty.

These things are about a foot long and take some eating.... The ride home after is often a sluggish affair!

It looks like I will be joining you for this one after all, Scott. Now how does this one compare to last week's triple torture? Shocked

I think there are a few people who don't know the route too well, so as I had a free hour this afternoon I went and got a quick video for you, complete with ironic music:




Note: Average speed for the Hinton segment was 8.4mph, and that is pretty much where the rest of the club are so you can see just how long a slog this hill is!
