This is the Tintern route less the edit I will sort that bit out tomorrow.

I will most probably meet you at Passage road,Aust as I might be pushing time so Normal meeting point at 10.00 and Steve will take you to the Bridge.
If any one wants to join in @ Aust let me know and we will sort out a meet.

Great ride with a little green lane-ing thrown in for good measure. To be honest the hills weren't as bad as I'd feared, I'll admit I didn't fly up 'em, ok so I crawled. Didn't realise how much the hills had taken out of me until we had to climb from Aust to Olveston to Tockington and on to Almondsbury.

Now you know why I started from Aust..Last week when we did it that last climb @ Tockington really did demoralise me.

Really enjoyed today's ride, sorry for the little bit of cx'ing, more luck than judgement that all our tyres held up. The headwind back fro the bridge took its toll, as my legs are pretty sore. Have a good week everyone.

Thanks all for a good ride, I do like a trip across the border every now and again. Some good climbs today (muhahaha!) and all that lovely scenery that Wales does so well.

For me the hardest part was the ride home from Bradley Stoke - 7 miles straight into that sodding headwind!
