    Wednesday 16th Jan Clevedon

    Just one brave sole turn up today Crying or Very sad 50 miles into the Very cold wind to Clevedon via Wrington hill and along the Moors to Kenn.
    By the time I needed a drink from the bottle nothing was coming out. The top was frozen stiff. Tip for Saturday, if anybody is going.
    Put boiling water in before you leave,should be cool enought to drink by the time you need it.
    Clevedon sea front was my destination. Cafe was called Tiffon or something like that. Real tea and a very nice cake.
    A bit warmer coming home with the north wind now behind me.
    Wrington Glacier was at it best right across the road apart from that the lanes were not to bad, not much ice on them just took it
    ease around a few bends and desents.
