Am planning on doing a round trip of about 90 miles (145 km) through Cheddar and Weston on Friday 12th August. I'll be leaving Bradley Stoke around 9 am though I can be flexible. First scheduled stop will be at the Farrington Farm Shop, mile 23.2. The second scheduled stop is Heather's Coffee Shop in Roundtrees Garden Centre, Congresbury, mile 67.5. If you fancy joining me let me know.

Neil, I can change the day to Saturday, would that help ? If Saturday's no good we could still go Friday but do a shorter route cutting out Weston. Including stops, we could do a 70 miler in 6 and a 1/2 hours easy so even if we left as late as 13.30 we'd still be home in daylight. I could also meet you say, at the Hambrook traffic lights to save a bit of time. What d'ya think ?

Gary if it's any use Gordon posted this on Facebook

"I'm off on Friday, anyone about for a few miles in the morning? Early-ish start, maybe a Monmouth loop 17-19mph ave depending on conditions."

Ok Neil, Friday 13.30 from Greggs/Bradley Stoke it is. At the risk of sounding like your mum, make sure you have some lunch before you leave. I'm only scheduling in one refreshments stop now, in Cheddar, unfortunately after the long climb up through the Mendips.

This is the revised shorter route

I'll private message (pm) you my mobile phone number so you can contact me if there's trouble !

See you Friday.

I would dearly love to Neil but unfortunately work commitments don't allow for an early finish. More importantly, I can't find a piece of string to pass through my jersey to stop me losing my mitts and my dinner money - got to keep Gary happy!

Have just pm'd you. You don't need any pants, you know cyclists go commando ! Make sure you've got a clean hanky though 'cos if you haven' got one I'll have to spit on mine when I wipe the ice-cream off your face. tongue
