Well what can I say? A thriving, diverse and dynamic community.
St. Marks Road which Berwick is just off has just taken The Academy of Urbanism’s ‘The Great Street Award 2020‘ as well as Easton being listed in Time Out’s ‘The 50 coolest neighbourhoods in the world‘! The Sweet Mart is a must if you like your spices, and the Deli does some delicious Indian snacks. Plenty of great local restaurants and pubs.
Easily accessible from The Froome Way and the Bristol and Bath Cycle Path. Stapleton Road Station is a hop, skip & jump away and Temple Meads about 10mins as is the centre of town.
On street parking; will give you options in final event email.

A fast ride with a handful of hills; one being Titterstone Clee, its trig point and radar stations.
During PBP 2015 whilst touring back with ACB I got chatting about LEL and thought ‘we need a west version; Bristol Glasgow Bristol, with hills!’ Back home I brewed coffee and wedged myself under the stairs. That afternoon the backbone was there. Fettling ensued and a test ride et voilà, one Big Gert Brevet!
The Festive 500 challenge came about after Rapha’s Graeme Raeburn’s double creamed 1000km over the festive period. He decided 500km was enough for the challenge, the extra 500 being pointless; well in Audax that isn’t quite true…
Work that Xmas fat off & complete the Festive 500 in 1 (pint)! Be prepared for anything; from freezing cold to winter sun & blue skies to hurricane winds & rain.
