I'm also looking to ride the longer cake ride so I may catch you Sunday. Have a good ride on Saturday, Hopefully the wind would have died down a tad as the Bridge crossing today was decidedly hairy.

I have to say Colin, the wind was horrendous enough in Bristol today so must have been like a hurricane on the bridge!!!!!
My wonderful son has just informed me that he now wants to go back to university on Sunday am not pm as we planned. The gutting news for me is that I will now miss the cake ride on Sunday. Devastated. Will definitely be on the run in June though.
Cheers

Hi Martin
Not exactly sure whether it is exactly the same route. The one I am planning tomorrow I have ridden 3 times before so know it well. It would be interesting to see after the ride whether it is the same. Looks like we have a good group tomorrow. See you all at Aztec in the morning. I also see Speedplay is now joining us which is great. Hope you all enjoy the ride.
Kind regards
Gary

Hi really sorry I didn't make this one. Had a bit of a bug for the last few days rather than abating, as I'd hoped, it gathered pace in the night keeping me up wheezing, shivering and farting. To be fair the farting's probably unrelated but not something I've noticed in the past as I 'm asleep! I guess it might explain why I'm often woken by my my frantic, saucer eyed cat trying to tunnel his black and white way out under the bedroom door. Poor Jack!

Hi Martin
Funny you mention a black and white cat, whilst at Aztec this morning, said cat ran past with a peg on his nose and eyes the size of dinner plates!!!!!
We waited until 8.45am but decided that we better not leave Karen freezing on the bridge. Me, Steve and Dave Morgan, Chris and Alex went today and we met Karen at the bridge. I will download the ride and try and put the link on here. I hope everyone enjoyed the day, I know I did. Thanks to you all for making my pain a little easier on those darn hills. We must do a similar route but plan for the 100 miles.
Cheers.
Gary

How was the climb up to Trellach from Mitchell Troy??

Heres a similar route but 100 miles, I have the gpx on GC if you want it.

In one word David, painful!!!!!!!
That is such a wonderful present after coffee and cake. Steve, Alex, Dave and Chris nailed it, Karen and I were too busy admiring the views, ha ha.
We must look at that route and try planning it when a bit warmer. Very weird today, cold one minute and overheating the next. Chris also spoke about a 170k Gospel ride which sounds bloody hard but also strangely alluring.
Cheers

It is painful, especially when you are straight out of the cafe and full of cake.
