If no-one puts their hand up for this one I'll take you all up Burrington Combe.

Not only do you get to go down the other side of Burrington Combe, you also get to go down Belmont Hill !

Feast your eyes .....The Main Ride

It's one of our longer Sunday rides but you can always join the ride along the route somewhere if you want to and save a few miles. Just say where so we can look out for you and give you a pick-up eta.

There is a fair ol' bit of climbing at just under 3,000 ft. The Burrington Combe climb (mile 25.2 to 27.8 ) accounts for about 700 of those feet, maxing at 11% in one place and averaging 5.3% overall.

We'll stop for rest and refueling at Big Rich's Cafe in Compton Martin (mile 31.9) ! Never heard of the place (found it on t'internet) but when you're out in the sticks you have to take what you can get.

Assemble in the vicinity of Costa/Bradley Stoke ready for chocks away at 10.00 hours.

You taking us up bridge valley too? Nasty business. But looks good to me! I'll meet you at Costa as normal but I'll peel off on the way back down cold harbour road. Probably at the Cambridge Arms. ... drunken

Thanks for sorting this weeks ride Gary.
Seems strange that with over 120 members there is only a VERY small few who are prepared to help out! Evil or Very Mad

Why not step up for the following weeks ie 19th and 25th

Looks good Gary. I see Big Rich's Cafe is open from 11am to 11pm on Sundays which means I may have got up Burrington Combe before they close!

Thanks Jeff. Good to have you along. Make sure you've had plenty of those energy bars on the way and you'll fly up those hills Smile

I've missed a few weeks through moving house etc so hope to be out on Sunday.

Looks like a good route, although it will be an odd one for me as I'd lose 20 miles of the circuit if I went straight from and to home.

Regarding Scott's point, I'm not in a position to devise any rides as I'm still learning from you all!

Just an early heads up.
I am going to continue organising and hopefully leading the Alternative Sunday rides but I have now got to the point where i am washing my hands of the main club rides.
If you want them to continue then it is up to the other 100 plus members others to sort them out. Sad
