Weston Wheelers latest club ride took the riders out to Westhay and back.

After last weeks epic ride, taking part in the Somerset 100, Weston Wheelers took it a little easier.

Starting from Priory School, as usual, a group of six riders departed under a darkening sky at 9am.

Heading out through Wick St Lawrence and Hewish, the Wheelers turned and headed south towards the Somerset Levels. Passing Banwell Caves, the group made their way through Christon and Loxton as they headed for Brent Knoll, taking the easy way over the knoll before turning south east and skirting Highbridge.

The skies finally opened and a light shower refreshed the riders as they made their way to West Hay and a brief pause for refuelling at Sweets Tea Rooms.

Leaving the cafe behind them, the Wheelers turned north and ascended Mudgely Hill, through Wedmore and onto Weare. The group crossed the A38 and skirted Cross and made their way towards Webbington and into Bleadon, before cycling through Weston and taking the coast road and Kewstoke, back to their starting point.

This week’s ride was enjoyed by a select group of Pete, Paul, Wayne, Andy P, Andy J and Duncan. The ride totalled 56 miles, with 2,000ft of climbing at an average of 16mph.
