Anyone fancy doing something a bit earlier and a bit quicker. Was hoping to leave before 9 and looking for 60 miles or so and maybe 5k ft of hilly stuff. I want to prepare for Velothon.

If no ones interested could someone plot or link me a route? Cake for the favour ofc. Paul's lent me his garmin 500 so wanted to try it out.

Ta muchly

I did this a couple of years back: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3309874

No chance I could do it again just at the moment.

Nice one. That's a nice route. If I wanted to knock 15 or so miles off it but keep most of the hills, what could I change?

You might be able to take 10 off the end by going directly north through Chew Magna on the Wells Road. It would be hard to take much else off and still keep the climbs.

I'm free for an earlier ride now on Sunday and I'm happy to do the route James has posted but if you only want to do 60 miles we could head over to Monmouth and back.
I Will post the route in a bit.

We could do this in either direction although I have to say I'd prefer to do the route James posted.

Happy either way mate. As it's just us at the mo we can decide when we meet. If anyone else posts up then we can decide the route then.

Want to me at the old blockbuster say 8:30?

Now I just need to try and download the route to the Garmin Smile

Morning Gents,

I've just made a copy of the route (Jame's Chedder one) on my RidewithGPS account.

I'll trim it down to 60 miles over my lunch break and re-post then.

I would be up for an 8.30 am start if you both are?

Also - Just to throw a spanner in the works - The weather looks better on Saturday so we could do this tomorrow? Happy either way though.

Sounds good Alain

I won't be able to do Saturday unfortunately which is a shame as the forecast is better. I will double check with the Mrs but unlikely.

I've shorted the route by taking out Wookey Hole.

Now 55 miles from Clifton SS bridge - http://ridewithgps.com/routes/7899242

Still tempted to do this tomorrow morning rather than Sunday.

Edit - To confirm I'm going to do this tomorrow morning as we have friends visiting on Sunday now.

Just in case anybody fancied joining Barry and myself tomorrow we are planing on doing the longer route jamesb posted and we're now meeting at the entrance to Orchard School (formally Monks Park) on Filton Road BS7 at 8:30am.
Cheers
