WARNING LONG AND SOME HARD HILLS..

I have more or less sorted out the route.It is long with some big hills ie Wotton and Frocester being the longest and hardest.It's about 65 miles with a cake stop at the new Lock keepers cafe by the canal at Stroud.
I will double check the route soon and post it up.

Well you could always use next weekend as a scouting ride for it and do something similar later - with the way the weather's going it might be your last chance this year for a decent long Sunday ride so don't postpone on my account :p

I will check that the pigs were fed on grass!
They do nice cakes not sure what else I will try and find out if they have veggie options.This is Stroud you know sometimes it's hard to get meat here.

It was hard work but very enjoyable about 1300 metre of bl**dy hills but the cafe was v good I rang before arrival and there was a table waiting for us and Wendy the proprietor just put two big pots of tea on each table and kept them filled. Bacon sarnies and cake and endless tea with excellent company what more could you ask for ?Oh and the sun came out once we got to Stonehouse prior to the big climb up Frocester hill.(see the sun shines on the righteous.)
It was an excellent warm up for next weeks Tasty Cheddar.
Cheers to all of you you made it a really nice day out.Lovely to see so many of you braving the early rain.

That was a great ride, i haven't done that much climbing on a ride for a long time,
it was only 2 pieces of cake Scott,which was needed to finish the ride,
i think everybody did really well today, looking forward to a nice easy ride next week.

Another good ride. Bloody knackered but I'm sure after one more glass of wine I shall be sleeping like a baby. Food count, two cliff bars, one bacon sandwich and a slice of victoria cake. Just under 70 miles, 5hrs 15mins and 3500ft of climbing!
