Over the bridge, but a different loop to this coming Sunday.
I can't resist another ride over the bridge on Thursday morning  but will avoid the Welsh side route we'll do on the club run this week. So I was thinking of doing the Wentwood reservoir climb via Shirenewton, then east to Tintern for refreshments and back. It's about 50 miles return from BS, roughly 4,000 ft ascent, 15.n mph ave.
Will post a gpx later. If anyone interested in joining me, let me know and we can arrange a meet, would be something like 10am depart BS.

If we can leave Costa for about 9ish (or earlier) then I can get the morning off work but I need to be back for 2pm as I have some afternoon appointments.

Sorry guys but I'm going to give this one a miss due to the danger of ice. There are going to be showers over the region Wednesday night and temperatures will fall to -2 c ie below freezing. A 9 o'clock start doesn't give enough time for any ice there might be to melt. There was an ice related road accident in Tintern last week in the early hours, luckily for us before we got there. I do intend to get out on the bike on Thursday but not before 11 am. I'm thinking of heading Berkeley way.

Take care guys.

Thanks for the warning Gary, agreed there is a risk of ice, we'll need to be watchful. There hasn't been rain since Sunday, and the Met Office has the local risk of precipitation as <5% between now and then, but we can make a judgement when we meet up in the morning whether we should stick to more well-used roads than some of the country lanes on this route.

Have a good ride!

Might join you for the later ride Gary - although my back has pinged again, and am in agony at the mo... so will see if I'm recovered in time.

I may be able to join you if you would like some company Gary, do you have a route in mind?

Had a job come up in Pilning for first thing tomorrow morning, so won't be able to make the 9am start I'm afraid.
Gary, might just be able to make your 11am start?

Sorry to keep you in suspense, here's the route Berkeley

We can stop off in the Berkeley Tea Rooms for a full English and a warm up.

Hope you can all come along.

Looking at an 11 am start from Costa, Bradley Stoke but happy to wait if anyone's running late. If you'd like my mobile number let me know.

Just realised I've hijacked Pete's thread with my later ride which could be a bit confusing so I've started a separate Weekday Rides thread for my later ride to hopefully clarify things.
