Mild temps are forecast for Saturday, 10-13˚, cloudy with light to moderate winds from the west. Roads should be relatively dry and good conditions for winter riding.
All routes head toward Hunter’s Lodge, where the White route heads to Wincanton and the other routes towards Bruton. The White route then heads to Galhampton and Sparkford, while the Blue route carries on to Charlton Adam and Yeovilton, the Pinks head to Somerton. All routes return parallel to the A303 via Wincanton and Buckhorn Weston. All rides end at the Old Brewery Cafe for much needed coffee and sustenance!
Meet at 9.30 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!
