Heres one that most probably most of you have visited at some point but never as a Sunday club ride .

Yep thats right Bitton railway station for tea and chips.
If you look at the route it's a bit round the lanes but we darent use the cycle track on a Sunday as it would not be fair on the others using it to have 25 of Strava beating lycra louts.so its up through Upton Cheny.

Now for the fun bit .
Young Jimmyb asked if we could go up Weston Lane. affraid the one that goes from Weston village to Landsdown road. I think it peaks at about 20 something %. So he is going to plot a nice little alternative for those that what to have a go at this hill.It is in the book about some of the best hills to ride i believe so heres your chance to get KOM on it.I of course will be ............................................oh no I just remembered I have to be somewhere so I will take the easy way back with the normal humans!

 Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  affraid  maybe a hill

The easiest way I can see is when we come to Mashfield lane just before mile 30, go left instead of right up onto lansdown, go down lansdown lane, round the roundabout then all the way back up it and back down through Upton Cheney.

Bloody Garmin site still down!
The only other way if there is not to many is to continue along the Bitton road through Kelston up past the school and down into Weston up the hill and back along the top of Landsdown.

I don't think it's the Garmin site, maybe it's the link?

Stela! Stela! Stela! would I put hills in just to annoy you? If you stick to my route there is only two 10% the other is 1 10% and a very small incline peaking at about 25%

Was looking at that way as well, its just how much more climbing do people want to do before getting to lansdown lane. Kelston is a nice route to cycle.

Yea I think I found the problem, I think I had the privacy settings on for that particular route.
