Cycling Report 9th May 2019

It was wet and windy when I set off for Lidl’s expecting to be home in about 30 minutes. Surprise, surprise I was joined by. Ron, Graham and Linda.
After around 30 minutes and on the Launcherley Drove, Linda's rear tyre went flat. We all spent a happy half an hour in the rain fitting a brand new tube and getting lots of mud under our fingernails.
Due to the delay and slow progress into the wind we decided to change tack. Instead of Glastonbury, Ashcott and Shapwick we all voted to head straight into the gale force winds for a slightly earlier lunch at Sweets. This turned out to be a good move as the wind strength increased with every circulation of the pedals. Note! No electric bike to help us.
After a good lunch we headed back for Wells on one of the usual routes.
We all admitted to enjoying the day with smug satisfaction when it was over!
I recorded 28 miles.

Cycling Report 23rd May 2019

There where seven of us who started from Cannington. Both Rogers, John Wh, Linda, John Wi, Peter W and myself.

The weather was kind to us with mainly sunny spells and a light breeze as we set off towards Stogursey. We then headed south to Nether Stowey for a coffee stop, which was very nice sitting outside by the clock tower chatting to the passing locals. After refreshment it started to get a bit hilly as we headed down to Hawkridge reservoir which is a pretty spot. Now came the big climb up to The Pines Cafe for our lunch stop. After lunch it was mostly down hill which was very welcome and a bit of fun as we made our way back to Cannington via Four Forks. In all just under 26 miles.
