Much enjoyed the ride up on a crisp, dry (and cold!) Quantocks today.
So i'm going to suggest a group ride up there on the first weekend in April - 7/4/13.
Hopefully Alex can lead us again, he said today he'd be up for it.

I'm hoping to get at least one ride a month organised. Probably on the first Sunday of the month as this doesn't clash with any National MTB rides.

Any suggestions (or offers to show people round :D ) of places to ride welcome, and lets get some nice SW rides up and running.

I'll be up for this ride, as I missed the last one.

I might be able to Kt as well, but I think Jon's in Portugal (cycling).

We should also try to get up onto the Mendips sometime. There are a couple of guys on the forum who know their way around up there, plus there is a cafe and a bike shop close by.

Sorry Tom, I just realised I can't make this, as I will be on Exmoor with me 'oss.

Probably be about 15-16 miles.
We'll start at the Lydeard hill car park, which is pretty much at the top, so no massive up to start with.
Plenty of hills, but all rideable, and nothing too long.
