Saturday 6 July 2019
Joining me (Richard the cake) were Chairman Paul, 90 inch fixed Mike, electric Ron, sawed off bars Charlie and Roger in the shade. Jackie and Martin came to Stourhead only. We went via Maiden Bradley and Warminster to Fairfield Farm College where we had reserved tables at the café. Sawed off bars Charlie had to wait for his meal but everyone else was served quickly, the food was good and reasonably priced.
The afternoon route was via Rudge, the traffic free cycle path by the river in Frome and Gare Hill, our great climb of the day. The group, including 90 inch fixed Mike, went up Gare Hill leaving me miles behind as I struggled in my 22 inch bottom gear. At the top they waited for me and then we returned to Stourhead for tea and cake.
