July? Already?! Saturday looks dry with a bit of a north westerly. The usual three routes which all make their way to Wincanton and Shepton Montague. The White route turns south to Charlton Hawthorne and Stowell before the run back to Gill. The Blues and Pinks continue to Keinton Mandeville with the Pinks heading onto Butleigh and Somerton before rejoining the Blues at Ilchester.

The rides all end at the Old Brewery Cafe and Kitchen for coffee, cake, or beer/wine.

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 refreshement.

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!
