I'm looking forward to next Sunday's ride and for some reason I can't seem to get Harptree Hill out of my mind   pale

Somebody, please save me from this madness by posting these magic words "I'll be Ride Leader this Sunday".

It would make a nice change to ride out Hullavington / Castle Combe way, route can be provided. Just sayin'

Hey Gaz, I'll lead on Sunday.

I'll plot a route going up Harptree. Or, better still, Blagdon Hill which I was introduced to recently and it's absolutely horrible!

Or both...

Hi everyone, so here's Sunday's route:

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/15701757

Starts at Bradley Stoke 10am prompt as usual, with optional pick-ups on Kellaway Avenue and the Suspension Bridge. If anyone wants to meet at either of these points, please let us know in advance as we won't be hanging around - it's a slightly longer route this week at 58 miles.

We'll head over the bridge, down Belmont Hill then warm the legs up on Dundry Hill. A quick descent to Chew Magna before we begin the horrendous lovely ascent up Harptree Hill. Some pleasant Mendip miles, before a nice quick run down the A39, stopping at Farrington Farm Shop which is a nice cyclist-friendly place. Sausage rolls and cake aplenty.

Then back home, a couple of unwelcome little lumps but mostly flat-ish, joining the cycle path at Bitton.

Looks good Pat. Mile marker 17 is worth a specific mention...this marks probably my favourite view of Brizzle. You can pretty much see every suburb from there and both Severn Bridges. Let's hope for good weather!

Nice one. Think I'll meet you at Kellaway. At Builders Merchants as usual? What time?

Hi Peter, sounds good. Sorry, not done one of these pickups before, where is the Builders Merchants? Just looking on maps, is that Kellaway Building Supplies? I imagine we'd be passing by at about 10.20am.

Yes, Kellaway Builders Supplies, as Scott's link pictures. I'll be there for 10.20, see you then.
