I begged threatened and cajoled Ken and he has agreed to run the Bristol Bulls eye route again but in reverse.
As some of you might remember this was a really nice change for us going around Bristol on the Souff side for a change.

Loks like food around Clevedon area but hopefully Ken will fill in any details.

I would have loved to have joined this ride but I am signed up to do the Bath Two Tunnels 10k race :-(

I'll probably be leading from the peleton, haven't been near a bike for two weeks.

Only "leading" because he who must be obeyed posted the ride before I agreed. Still for the good of the club and all that.

No doubt someone will go off the front with the route in their Garmin and take the sprinters with them, while the rest of us GC contenders will roll round taking in the scenery.

yes in reverse!
I asked Ken if he was up for leading his Bristol bulls eye route and he came back and said (well I wont tell you what he said) But somewhere in there he said he had reversed it sounds like fun Very Happy

On my old one the the route came up with the http:// bit in front of the route and you just highlighted a dragged it to NBCC. The new one doesn't put the http:// bit in front and you have to type it in before posting, obviously I'm doing something wrong or else I just need to get a much bigger hammer out of he van!!!!!!

I think you need a GNVQ in computors before you can get the bigger hammer out.

Can anybody lead this ride or their own ride on Sunday? I have to work and can't get out of it.

Thanks in advance, Ken.

I'll pick up the reins. I'm wondering if we might prefer a lunch stop a little earlier than Clevedon (mile 44) say somewhere in the Congresbury or Yatton area but where to stop ? I only know of 102 The Bistro, Yatton which is nice but I'm not sure if it's suitable for a club visit. Anyone know of anywhere else we could try ?

Thanks Gary.

Cafe alternatives are

(35.8 miles) Roundtrees garden centre (next door to Cadbury garden centre) has a cafe and is used to cyclists, good cake, snacks etc and not expensive. Cafe is located at far right corner next to the butterfly house and you can walk your bikes through. Telephone 01934 835555

(39.6) The Plantations cafe, at Kingstone Seymour. Turn right off Middle lane, theres usually an advertising board pointing you to the cafe. Telephone 01934 832325.

Might be worth giving them a quick call
