The Return

With the return from trips to France and fewer other commitments the number of riders out in the sun returned to more normal levels. It was also great to see the re-emergence of the Touring Group (who have now renamed themselves The Grupetto)

A slight variation on the usual route out through WSM saw a few extra bits of climbing thrown in for good measure to balance out before the blast to the coast and a busy Burnham seafront

A (slight poor) cake offering was chosen over ice creams before a last minute extension to the return route (via Wedmore) and a little more climbing (Cheddar Gorge) was agreed

It was good to see so many cyclists out (a sportive) and reassuring for the less fleet of foot of us that others found the gorge challenging as well
