Saturday is looking pleasant with temps in the low 20’s, light cloud and fairly light winds from the west. All route head out north-east past the Hunters lodge, from here the Pinks carry on through Bruton and on towards Street, before turning south to Somerton. Meanwhile the Blues and Whites peel off via Shepton Montague and Foddington, with the Blues carrying on to Somerton and the Whites cutting the corner off to Queen Camel.
The Pinks and Blues return from Somerton to Queen Camel to join the Whites, with the Blues and Whites then returning via Wincanton and the Pinks via South Cheriton. As usual there will be a post-ride coffee and cake available at Cafe Corsa.
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.
