Monday, named after the Moon. Night ride around the full moon. Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata comes in three parts with different forms; adigio, allegretto, presto! Expect the same with the route; pace vs terrain.

A quick evening ride over and around The Mendips.
Start at 19:00 but I’ll be there till 20:00 for informed late arrivals. BUT finish by 02:00 (last orders) at The Beer Emporium, no allowance for a late start. Lights essential, mudguards advisable!

What others think.
No moon Just full clouds of wetness.
Fantastic route to toughen the resolve with the weather conditions we encountered early March. Driving rain all the way round and fog on higher ground with 6 feet visibility added to the atmospheric conditions. . New climb for me to get on top of the Mendips – Coley Road out of Harptee towards Chewton Mendip. descent down Canada coombe after Bleadon a little sketchy but prewarned at arrivee.
Brilliant route would be a great ride in the summer.
I have found this ride very cold. Also, because I came to the start too late, I have to ride it mostly without the group. There was a bit section that I didn’t like. It was the main road leaving Lacock.
