As we are having a lesson in cake eating at Hill on Sunday then Mark Aerobully suggested a hill climbing lesson with Cake on Sat.Most likely same as Mark and I did a couple of weeks ago Start from Cam/Dursley park and ride .Up through Coaly cat5 then Stouts cat3 across to Avening and up the 'w'cat3 Stroud lock keepers for coffee and cake and back to Cam.
something like this.

Hills? Best put some reliable tyres on me bike then! Count me in. (the link to the garmin site doesn't work for me - so just out of interest, what's the approx distance/duration).
I'll be cycling to the CAM P&R from Thornbury if anyone else wants to join me and add on a few clicks.

Wiggo quote
Anticipating one of the great Pyrenean climbs.
“It goes uphill like all the others, doesn’t it?”

As long as you got rubber tyres and you don't touch the ground then you will be safe in the thunder and lightening. affraid So it's most definitely no walking tomorrow.

See we don't get rain up here in Gods country!
Lovely ride even if we did climb 2000 ft in 28 miles.
