So far we are looking good for Thursday.

If we go South then means something like the lakes.

Normally I'd be happy to ride to the start, but if we're going south then I'll probably drive.

Thursday sounds good, especially as the weather is forecast to turn a lot colder towards the end of the week.

I've found Warmley on the map but I don't know where this cycle track is, or what road it crosses. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Cycle track crosses the A420 (Chippenham Road)which is a left turn at roundabout from Ring Road if coming from Bradley Stoke direction or a right turn if coming from Brislington end.

There is a car park adjacent to the track.

The Car Park is opposite the A420/Tower Road junction.

Thanks, I've now located that on Google maps - so I should be OK

BTW - is it a pay-and-display car park, or free? Just so I can plan for coinage if necessary.

Hi Cooky, it's only a diddy car park with 27 spaces, to give you an idea of what you're looking for. It does have a maximum stay time limit of 24 hours so you should be back in time! Oh and it's got a public convenience.

Unless the weather is dire, will be at Warmley for 9.30. I presume we are bound for Chew Valley lake? After Sunday's poor performance will have to select a suitable mount.

Ian route we took above.
Well another nice day out with the mature riders.
Peter,Martin(clifton9),Nick(Tompo)and our latest new member Ian (cooky) who it turns out is young Alex's Dad.Ian it was really nice to have you with us today it made a lovely little group.
Unfortunately Peter had three punctures,Well actually it was good as we had a chance to stop and get legs back while Peter changed it.
As you can see from route we went to the lakes at Chew,where we availed ourselfs of tea,pasty and cake.. oh we also stopped at Bitton to make sure their cake and tea were ok.
Looks like we are going again next Thursday to Slimbridge.so if any one fancies pinching a day off I won't tell!!!
See you all on Sunday,and Ian is Thornbury based he knows EVERY hill around that way (also the pubs)
