Taking in the sights south of Bristol. Expect a few #wills_hills including King Alfred’s Tower and some beautiful countryside including a lovely gradual descent on a traffic free old rail trail
EVENT REVIEW SUMMARY:
Extensive route notes and a variety of files will be distributed to entrants via email a week or two before the event. In the mean time use the interactive map for an overview of what lies ahead (subject to change); toggle the elevation & grade on/off by clicking the key. *Please note plugin's 'grade' is experimental so take it with a pinch of salt, especially where rocky outcrops may be present.
Heading out past Chew Valley Lake and over The Mendips to the cathedral city of Wells you can grab a quick coffee or more from the market. Continuing on round the Bishop’s Palace you make your way through Bruton to tackle the climb upto King Alfred’s Tower before the chance for some pub grub. The return leg includes a castle, Mells then the Colliers Way, the old rail trail, into the old mining town of Radstock all with a few more #wills_hills before arriving back at Whitehall Garden Centre.
Parking at Whitehall Garden Centre. Toilets & cafe available in the morning, cafe all afternoon with sandwiches (maybe more) and drinks from 17:00. Easily located by car from A37 or bike from Bristol Centre via the Whitchurch Way.

Great tough days riding
This was a great ride and brilliantly organised thanks to Will and his team… there is a sting in the tail after Radstock with some challenging ascents…
Great day out, I think Will must have found every 20%+ climb in Somerset and Dorset. Well chuffed to get up them all, good controls & scoff. Special thanks to the “Oldies” at Yeovil working their socks off to feed us all.
