Saturday is fairly mild at 10-12˚ but overcast, with a westerly wind and some chance of rain so dress to suit.
All routes head out through Buckhorn to Wincanton, before running parallel with the A303 to South Cadbury. Here the whites head on to Sparkford and North to Foddington. The others carry on to Ilchester where the blues head up to Charlton Adam and rejoin the whites, both head back to Wincanton and home to Gillingham. The pinks carry on to Somerton and head further North before returning through Bruton to Gillingham. All rides end at the Old Brewery Cafe for much needed coffee and sustenance!
Meet at 9.00 am at the Wheels car park, Station Road, Gillingham. Please ensure you download your chosen route to your GPS device, and remember to bring your ride essentials, particularly sufficient liquid refreshment.
There is nothing to stop a group splitting into a ‘light’ and a ‘dark’ group, and a slower group can take on a longer route or a faster group ride a shorter route. All rides are no drop rides but please select a group suited to your ability!
