Same route as Saturday 25th Jan only quicker and lighter!

85 miles long and about 5000 feet up!

Leaving start point @ 08:45
Leaving Willy Wicket @ 09:05

Planning on two stops. First will be at the The Mousehole Coffee Bar, Cheddar and the second will be at Sand Bay Tea Rooms, Sand Bay.

The route: http://connect.garmin.com/course/5448181

Folks, in the unlikely event I can get a pass, could I meet you somewhere on the railway path (makes more sense for me, coming from S. Bristol). Say where the ring road and railway paths meet, or at Bitton? What time do you think you would be there?

Cheers.
