there is a chance that i'll have my specialized i bought today by the weekend, which would be cool.

the climbs are not very steep but there are 2 quite long but not too techy climbs. i predict everyone will be knackered but the final decent will be fun :D
think its best to avoid dunster as it's mental there on sundays... prob just drop down into minehead at the end it avoids 2 miles of road too
