Weekend Ride – Stalbridge to Ibberton

Saturday 16 March 2019 Fearless Five Fight the Force Forty Five mph winds, led by Roger. Roger was recovering from a lingering cold, anticipating an early return home when we arrived at Dikes in Stalbridge. Within a few minutes it was evident this would be a less well attended ride. Ed, Charlie, Mary, Jill and […]

Weekend Ride – Child Okeford to Tarrant Monkton

Saturday 9 March 2019 So what do I know?!  Ken and I set off for Child Okeford happy in the assumption that the forecast wind of up to 40mph would have put off most sensible riders.  Wrong!  19 people turned up at the Gold Hill café – and for future gatherings, they open at 10am […]

Weekend Ride – Wincanton to Glastonbury

Following a week of fine weather the second day of official meteorological spring was looking good for a really enjoyable Saturday ride as Charlie and I set off for Wincanton. We met up with Lorraine and Ed on the far side of Buckhorn Weston with promising blue skies breaking through as we continued on to […]

Weekend Ride – Child Okeford to Sturminster Marshall

Saturday 23 February 2019 Fifteen riders assembled at the Gold Hill café in Child Okeford for the ride to Sturminster Marshall.  Lorraine had just come for coffee so fourteen set off through Okeford Fitzpaine. Ascending the foothills of Okeford Hill Roger developed a loose crank (blame the bike builder?) so he and Jill turned back. […]

Weekend Ride – Stalbridge to Montecute!!!

Saturday 16 February 2019 What a dirty trick! Friday was beautiful, sunny and warm, as I drove around my projected tour. Today was quite nice too: got a bit dark in the middle, but it brightened up. On Saturday morning however, it was a different story — dark, dreary and soggy. I drove through some […]

Ride Report – Gillingham to Bruton

Saturday 9 February 2019 When I awoke on Saturday morning the rain was lashing against the window and I thought I may be in for a Billy-No-Mates ride, but by the time I had finished breakfast the rain had stopped and the wind had dropped. Just as I was about to leave home Richard N […]

Ride Report – Gillingham to Sherborne

Saturday 26 January 2019 Following some dire weather forecasts during the week I was pleasantly surprised on Saturday morning when the temperature was 8 Deg and it wasn’t raining. On arrival at Orchard Park in Gillingham there were a few keen riders already there. During coffee Rodney and Sarah from the Gillingham Wheelers also joined […]

Ride Report – Stourhead to Boyton, no, Tisbury, no, Motcombe

Saturday 19 January 2019 Mary has had a lousy start to 2019.  With a bad crash on New Years Day and a very disappointing weeks skiing holiday (or not skiing as was the case), she was unable to lead her ride today as sitting on the saddle was a no-no. I volunteered to step in. […]

Ride Report – Marnhull to Bruton

Saturday 12 January 2019 Nineteen members and partners came for a rather chaotic start to the meet but order was restored and hopefully all were fed and watered. So good to see Lorraine and Robin who have both had medical problems. Dave M, Mike A, Charlie Woz iz Name, Ben, Ron, Keith, Mike P and […]
