Has summer finally arrived? Has the sun been lured out of retirement? The usual three routes this week. The White route heads to Longleat and on towards Frome, returning through Witham Friary and the Brewhams.

The Pink and Blue routes head to Warminster and Dilton Marsh where they deviate. The Pink route does a loop around the top of Frome and onto Nunney and Witham Friary before the return to Gillingham. The Blue route passes through Frome and meets the other routes again at Witham Friary.

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!
