Weston Wheelers enjoyed the warmest and sunniest day of the year so far.
Weston Wheelers’ latest ride was the warmest and sunniest so far this year.
Leaving from Priory School at 9am, the group headed out of Worle via St Georges and Wick St Lawrence onto the A370. They took a right after Puxton Park through the back lanes and climbed up past Banwell’s caves to Christon and Loxton.
The next climb took them up over Brent Knoll where they encountered the Freaky Peaky Duathlon competitors running down the hill.
The riders went on to Highbridge and Mark and across the beautiful Somerset Levels. A quick puncture repair was needed on one of the carbon bikes making its summer debut before the scheduled stop for a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

A challenging climb up Mudgley Hill warmed their legs up before the ride home through Wedmore and on to Crook Peak. The final climb up Bleadon Hill and the descent into Uphill took them back into Weston and a busy seafront.
This week’s ride totalled 50 miles, climbing 1800ft at an average speed of 15.5mph. Thanks go to Paul D, Andy, Paul S, Pat, Steve, Jason and Pete.
