Now here's an idea I don't get that many now-a-days!
Either Easter Sunday or Easter Monday how about we have a crack at rideing the Tasty Cheddar Audax Route?
A few of us did this last year and I know that a couple are either signed up for it or hope to sign up for it.It'sn 100k
starting by the Create centre in Bristol but we can start anywhere near there.The route goes up the Portway over the Avonmouth bridge follow route 10 to Clevedon sea front the across moors to Congresbury then Sandford to Cheddar up the George over the top down to by the lakes and back up again to some village I have forgotten the name of then down to Blagdon and back across to Long Ashton.I will find my Garmin for it for last year and post a bit later if I get any interest.
Let me know if there is any interest and which day and we can sort it out.
Scott

Sorry Phil
I claim old age and the fact that I had to go to work today I have deleted that post it was in the wrong thread.
This ride is MONDAY 9th Starting from the Create centre at 10.00am and following the Tasty Cheddar audax route.

Scott .... just uploaded the route to basecamp .... you might want to check
the bit around West Harptree. Looks like there's a chunk missing as it appears to
route across a field Smile

Yes Ask NickF.
We should of turned left halfway down the hill but as Nick was doing his normal downhill routine ie 40 mph eyes closed we missed the turning and had to sort out where we were. I will have a look later.

I have imported route into Map MY Ride and tweaked it.We should of turned off part way down the hill but it's more fun taking the Nick route.
I will have a map and compass so we should be ok Also Martin9 is back so if he brings a sextant we should be ok.! http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/52713638/

Divine intervention might be more appropriate
We will be ok we don't need a map with Motorways on it for this one!
Mind you someone said something about a lake now where there's a village is on my map?

Looks like I won't make the Friday ride now so going to try and make this one instead, if only to watch Scott's face again going up that nasty hill :p
Any detours were entirely your fault as you were the only one with route instructions...
