    this saturday's ride will take in the delights of south somerset as we stretch our legs down to ilminster. i had intended to go to forde abbey tea room but a phone call revealed that cafe entry is only open to those who buy a ticket to enter the grounds.

    instead, we'll find a cafe in ilminster.

    ilminster is about 10 miles beyond langport; which, by my reckoning, makes ride distance about 65 (thought i'd take a leaf out of martin's book there!)

    see y'awl tomorrow.

    I just had a quick look for cafes in/around Ilminster and there seems to be 2 options -

    Bilbys in the high street but not sure about bike parking. Looking on Google Streetview there seems to be an alley way down the side but not sure.

    or

    Monks Yard just outside Ilminster in Horton which suprisingly has its own court yard :-) According to Google its 2.7 miles from Ilminster - Google FACT!

    Martin - is that a GOOGLE FACT or is that an MARTIN/IVAN FACT, i.e. Monks Yard is about 49 miles from Ilminster!

    how about we get to ilminster then find a cafe.

    my experience of google recommended cafes stretches as far as our trip to castle cary last september ( the day of the morris men!)

    great stop, but no thanks to google who would have had us pay £6 for a teacake in their recommended cafe.

    which reminds me, macmillan coffee morning must be coming up soon.
