Looks like there might be some showers around on Sat for the club rides, with westerly winds. All routes head therefore west through Wincanton and Sparkford and Queen Camel, the Whites then head to West Camel, Marston Magna returning via Sandford Orcas and Buckhorn Weston. The Blues carry on to Ilchester, before returning via the outskirts of Yeovil, Bradford Abbas and Sherborne and Buckhorn Weston. The Pinks carry on through Ilchester to Long Load, East Lambrook and then up ham hill to Odcombe and on to Bradford Abbas where they join the blue route back to Gillinghmam.

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!
