Hill challenge for Weston Wheelers

Weston Wheelers took on the challenge of Enmore hill, which is a four-mile ride to the top.
Weston Wheelers’ latest ride saw the rider take on the challenge of Enmore Hill near Bridgwater in overcast conditions.
After a quick dash up past Banwell bone caves, the riders ambled down the Winscombe valley and across the levels towards Mark. All was well until Duncan punctured and fell heavily, but the group carried on to Bridgwater.
The road climbs for just over four miles although Enmore hill is the last two miles. Andy reached the summit some time before the others, and Katie, resplendent in her new kit, gave a demonstration of effortless superiority as she blasted past everyone to set the second fastest ladies’ time and reach the cafe whilst they still had coffee.
Paul C, recently back on his bike after a romantic distraction, reached the top without too much pain and completed the whole of his ride successfully. Pete G, recently back from some hilly rides in North Devon was also in fine form.

Coffee drunk and cakes consumed, the riders dropped down from the top at a cracking pace to endure another section of the A39 through Bridgwater as they retraced their route across the levels before diverting towards Weston.
Pete G and Merrion had the energy for some hard charging down the flat mile beside the railway, but most were happy to let the mile roll by.
