A very very nice man (well thats what he told me) Is looking after us next Monday.
As a bit of a treat he is taking us up over Trelleck down Jareks hill to the Red Door Deli Then into Monmouth up the hill into Coleford down through the Forest and into secret location for cake and tea.
Route if you want it?

Not certain about start time yet as we normally start a bit earlier on Bank Holidays so we can have more fun .I will let Si work on that as it is his ride.

As its a Bank Holiday and a longer ride than the normal Sunday rides, 09.00 from Costa or 09.45 from the bridge.

Second stop is my place and the wife is going to bake some cake and other goodies for us.

Although this is a longer & hillier ride than the Sunday rides it wont be at a fast pace.

Might make it out on this, if I can recover from an epic ride the day before.

Note; The old Wye bridge in Chepstow is currently closed with no word on when it will reopen.
The new bridge is horrible, I do it every day but at least on a bank holiday it should be fairly quiet.

Like Paul, I plan to do this ride after a fairly tough ride the day before. I'll be especially looking forward to another portion of Mrs Luce's rejuvenating flapjack.

Having had another look at the Wye bridge, it has got pedestrian access.
Should be ok going through as long as it's discreet and not in a big bunch.

Might be worth checking that the Red Door is open - it's normally closed on a Monday but might be open as it's a BHol???????

Just along the A403 from the roundabout before the old severn bridge is a road called Passage Road, you can park there then wait on the footpath on that roundabout by the road to the Severn View Services. Put "Passage Road Aust" in Google maps.

I'm shot after 90 miles and riding a tandem over the Cotswold hills today.

If I don't make it to the bridge meet, I might go direct to the Red Door and catch you for the second half.
I'm guessing around 11:30/12:00.
