Despite being Father’s Day another good turn out today and after the flatlands of last week today saw the rolling hills of Somerset as the two groups headed to Bradford On Avon and Timsbury. , but contrary to 3On setting off there was some moisture in the air and dampness on the roads but contrary to the forecast from the majority (but not all) of the weather apps, it stayed dry throughout.
On arriving at Connies, the intermediate group found there was no room inside and had to decamp to the rear garden – actually more of a patio and building site – but at least food and drink were available – really should think about warning the intended coffee stop ahead of arrival!
The return journey was slightly less undulating but had a few longer climbs giving to give 1,000m overall at just under 25km/h average speed
The fast group also dined outside at The Lock, and with a similar route back reached 1,400m of climbing and a tasty average speed of over 29km/h
In a slight change to the published route, the two groups enjoyed a pacy blast in the sun out to Glastonbury, with the good weather and limited hill climbing bringing a good turn out
