We'll meet in Queen Square at 5.50 for a 6pm start (call or text if you are late). We'll then head out on some fairly quiet but hilly roads out of Bristol to Whitchurch (to avoid rush hour traffic). We'll briefly join the A37 before taking back lanes to Chew Lake.
Once at Chew Lake, we'll follow the course of a time trial around the lake (the weekly time trial starts the week after) to check out the route. This section is around 8 miles long and we'll try to go at a good pace. Once we're back to the start, we'll retrace some of our route back to the A37 and then take the main road back to Bristol.
This is a fairly quick ride for those with road bikes. We'll aim to ride at 12mph + average (faster around the lake). This is a Breeze ride though - we don't leave anyone behind and we encourage each other up the hills. If you are unsure about the pace/whether it's right for you, just get in touch.
YOU WILL NEED LIGHTS. Please also bring repair kit and drinks/snack (no coffee stop).
