Tim has asked if I'd lead another south west ride and I thought a ride by the sea would be good for August :D (Fingers crossed it will be dry)

The ride will start in west bay near Bridport (DT6 4GD) There is a big car park here.
9.30am for a 10am start

The ride is roughly 20miles and takes around 4 hours there are two options to shorten it if we feel like it. :lol:
Here are some photos of what to expect.

Up hell lane.

And where we ride along the coast.

There are some pubs along the route and I'd suggest bringing food for a lunch stop.
I look forward to seeing you all.

Hi - whats the skill level required for this ?, and will the ride be at full pace.

I have a basic no suspension 15 year old aluminium Giant, even older knees and back :oops: :cry:

I am keen to go, just dont want my bike to fall to pieces, my knees to crack, to embarrass myself, hold everyone up (or all the above)
