Weston Wheelers’ latest ride saw members cycle to Bristol and back via Spike Island.

Weston Wheelers headed for Bristol via the Avonmouth Bridge, with their ultimate destination, a coffee stop on the harbourside in Bristol.

A group of 13 riders departed from Priory School and headed out of Weston, through Bourton and onto the Bristol Road. Taking the road toward Yatton, the party turned onto the arrow straight roads across north Somerset moorland past Kenn and onto Clevedon.

Quickly passing through the town, the group made for Portishead. Next came Pill and the cycle route across the Avonmouth Bridge, before taking to the cycle path along the Portway and into Bristol.

Having completed just over half of their journey, there was a brief but welcome coffee stop at Mud Dock, on Bristol’s Harbourside, before the riders took to the roads across Spike Island, onto Long Ashton and the Festival Way.
