Well you had you nice little ride today and filled up with cakes so for those that don't work those calories off on the 4 ice creams and a cream tea on Tuesday you can race up Bannerdown.I was going to be evil and come up St.Catherines but thought better of it as I am to young to be lynched. Route

Here's that climb on Strava. Bear in mind that the Actual climb ,Steway lane, is much longer than just the 0.5 mile segment shown here. http://app.strava.com/segments/921710 Yes Chilblains if you look closely there are another4 contour lines to cross apart from the ones contained in the half mile, which itself has an average gradient of 11%(I've had exams marks lower than that!). Here's the full lane profile 36X28 GEARING FOR ME: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/100146981/?open_ive_done=1&new_route=1#climbs

The first bit is one in five if my finger and toe abacus is to be believed. Would have gone to decimal places but I don't use my "fraction" indicator as a rule Very Happy(not without pulling the curtains)

Enjoy this one chaps.

I am going to Exmouth for a wet and windy weekend break.

I will see those who are doing the Biggest Bike Ride on the 17th.

Right oh Kids had a look at route and possible weather and have taken the unprecedented step of shortening the route.
New route cleans up Bannerdown for Martin and makes it nearly all down hill after cake.

I'm trying to come to this one! If I fail to make it to Bradley Stoke, I'll pick up the ride from Coxgrave hill @ Pucklechurch!
