I have a busy week ahead and cannot guarantee being there on Wed for the ride so could one of you nice 'young' people please try and sort one out.There is a chance that i can make it but I don't want to do a route and then not be able to make it.

As an idea, only a thought as it would mean taking the cars to the start but some of the fitter faster ones want to have a go at Belmont hill.(bloody fools)It's 0.9 miles up hill and the time at the moment is about 4.10 or so.Trouble is it would really mean driving to something like Create centre in Bristol or similar then riding to the hill having a go or two and then back before to dark.We don't really want to attack the hill in the dark.We won't be able to find the bodies. Twisted Evil Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Sad affraid

Hoping to be out but can't confirm until Wednesday. If I can make it I don't mind leading a ride and doing my usual evening route (25 or 30 mile option), probably won't get around to doing a GPX though...
Don't think Belmont as an evening ride is worth it really, like you say we'd probably have to drive so a bit pointless and traffic will probably still be pretty busy at that time anyhow.
Probably better to find a decent North Bristol climb and have our own challenge, off the top of my head if you combine the lower and upper Tockington climbs that should give a fairly long climb, but you need to cross a junction in the middle which could throw times out (although it's usually quiet).

Yeah possibly, it's just a bit far out I thought, still I guess you'll be warmed up by then :p

Took myself for a gentle loop around Yate. Rain at start but was dry a few minutes in. 24 miles in 1hr 35mins http://connect.garmin.com/activity/109120551
