Club Ride: Highlands and Islands Tour

Saturday, 7th October 2017 at 9am - 5:30pm

Location: Meet at Viridor car park in Priory Bridge Road, at 9am sharp for 9:15 departure

This event is in the past.

This ride is about 35 miles, and is almost all flat.

We often ride around the part of the Levels south of the Polden ridge, much less often the part between the Poldens and the Mendips, so that's where we're heading.

We'll be starting riding from the Avalon Marshes Visitor Centre just north of Shapwick towards Glastonbury along the railway path, north to Godney and Bleadney (...ney so they were islands) then a break with club tradition - uphill a bit to lunch at the Panborough Inn.

After lunch we'll ride around Westhay and several other moors, noted for their bird life, then south to the second hill and second highland at Chilton Polden, and making our way back through Shapwick.

The Avalon Marshes Visitor Centre has a café open until 4:30 where we can have a cup of tea and a piece of cake before returning home.

We'll be using the trailer so please say what bike and car places you'll need or have available using the comments box.

Leader: David Cox
