Not sure about the rest of you but I'm pretty sure my legs aren't going to have much left in the tank after that distance - especially considering I'll have to add on a few miles getting from and to home. Personally I'll be happy with a flatter route on the way back.

If, this was a democracy then the flat route would have it so far!
Moreton Way is bad enough with out Mumbleys! I heard that Mumbleys hill is closed on Sunday for the Olympic torch to go through Laughing

It might also be worth noting that my other half has a cold and if I catch it (which I usually do) I'll be out of the game so my opinion could be academic. I'm ok at the moment though so hopefully I'll dodge it. See you Sunday (hopefully).

I'm also up for giving it a go but doubt whether I'll make the hills on the way out let alone adding ones on the way back.

Don't worry about the hills as you'll have plenty of company!

I've done the first hill before - its not as bad as it looks. It looks like it would be quite easy to cut the second one out by not going down the hill to Dursley and rejoining the route further up the road. I reckon it will probably be ok though.

We could avoid all the hills by going up the moors and back that way!Stouts hill is in as it was asked for and I delivered.If you wish as you say just keep going at the to of Wotton left towards Nymsfield right at the end and down Selesly hill straight into Stroud.
We went up Cheddar today and down Burrington when we could of avoided both but hey wheres the fun in that.If you are worried about them stick with me we will walk them together. lol!

Reminds me of a hit musical with John Travolta and that blonde aussie bint whose name escapes me.. " Him: I got hills ,they're multiplying and I'm losing control, cause the power I'm supplying ain't electrifying". Her "Better shape up Hills are the plan, and my mind is set on two! Better shape up, you gotta understand, it's just wot we're gonna do!" .... What was her name?

As far as I'm aware it's a 10am departure so arrive earlier for a coffee and chat.
