PostSubject: MAY DAY! MAY DAY! - Monday 7th May   Mon Apr 30, 2012 9:00 am

Just realised that Next monday is a day off for some people Well it is if you are a Banker.(Banker I said!)
How about we attempt to do the Tasty Cheddar Audax route we tried to do a couple of weeks ago and got wind/rained off.
This was the one that started from Create centre in Ashton (by the swing bridge.)
I will try and find the route in a minute and add to this so you can have a look.I did this with Nick last year and I think Mark Waggoner did it as well.Very easy first half then Nice little climb up Cheddar etc.

Found a ruff route

Count me in too. Do you think we should sacrifice a cow/goat/virgin to appease the Gods only Scott's midnight Pagan good weather dance doesn't seem to cut the mustard anymore.

After each ride strip yourself down, have a long soak in bath of Castrol GTX and you'll go on for years.

Since I put the 12-32 on the rear I've only had to use the 32 bit it once, twice oh go on then three times. It's very steep in Wotton!

There's a nice free car park opposite (to the side) of the Nova Scotia to. Anyone actually cycling down from Bradley Stoke though? I'm sort of tempted and then remember some of the hills after Cheddar so I'm probably more likely to drive there...

@John - there's a couple of really steep (but short) climbs so the big cassette's not such a bad idea

@Nick - I'll be cycling down from Bradley Stoke, possibly Mark Waggoner too, we had planned on cycling down the first time, leaving BS about 9am.

@Mark W - do you still fancy cycling down ?

Ok, I'll go with the flow. I don't fancy cycling back up Bridge Valley Road after a long day in the saddle though.
