A nice steady ride (average speed about 15 mph) in beautiful Welsh countryside taking in the Tumble nr Abergavenny. Not suitable for newbies.

START TIME IS 0900 hrs from Costa at Bradley Stoke. If you'd like to join the ride somewhere along the route eg the Old Severn bridge, let me know so I can give you an ETA.

Disaster! I was going through plans with my lovely lady and she reminded me that I have plans Sunday. But as a jester of niceness she's agree to me doing it Saturday instead. Probably a solo effort so anything I should know about the route gary?

Shame you wont be joining us. Before you hit the Tumble, if you need a rest, mug o' tea and some flapjack that wont cost you an arm and a leg, as you approach Abergavenny town at the 37.8 mile mark there's a car park on the right with a decent cafe called the Oasis Snack Bar and if you want to lighten the load there's a public toilet there too, just across the car park.

And before you go, check you've got plenty of meat on your brake pads as I expect you'll be using your brakes quite a bit on the descent.

Don't forget to take a selfie by the sign that tells you you've reached the summit.

Best of luck

Excellent. It doesn't look like we're in for a heatwave at the weekend, which is good, but it might be showery so have your pocket waterproof on standby.

Where will you be starting from , Costa BS ?

Great route Gary. Only got lost a little bit but that's more my lack of garmin reading skills than the route.

You will all have a great day tomorrow and some beautiful sights, great especially if you've not been before.

At the last count, I and 3 other souls (and possible another) are doing the Tumble ride tomorrow, Sunday 24 May. This one starts at 9.00AM from Costa Bradley Stoke. We'd love to have you join us.

The club's main official Sunday ride is a relatively gentle one, details are under 'Bank Holiday Sunday' in the 'Sunday Rides, (Main official club ride)' section of the forum. There's sure to be plenty of people doing this ride.

There are two rides on Bank Hol Monday, one over the Bridge to the Forest of Dean and the other is a rerun of the LVIS Audax route that was run earlier this year. Details elsewhere on the forum.
