So who’s out for a Bank Holiday weekend ride? The Pink route heads to Evercreech before doing a loop around Shepton Mallett then south to Keinton Mandeville and back via Wincanton. The Blues go through Shepton Mallet and back through Castle Cary and Wincanton.

Meanwhile the White route follows the other routes to Evercreech before returning via Bruton.

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

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!
