    Here we come, riding down the street (getting the funniest looks from ev'ryone we meet!)

    Yep, the good folks of Weston have forgotten about that odd bunch of cyclists who used to ride down the seafront on Saturdays.

    YES it's a Saturday; YES we're riding south (I can remember a time when this was becoming passé.)

    We'll be visiting the monk's of Horton Cross which should equate to an 85 miler or thereabouts.

    We'll be heading through Burrowbridge and North Curry offering a few Tri-options should you need to get back.

    Route out will be Toll Rd, Seafront, Anchor, Jennie's bogs before we take on the slopes of Woolly Hill and the Strada Bianchi.

    Are we planning to visit the Little Chef at Horton Cross (in which case I need to pack a pastie) or the really nice cafe, I have heard about that's nearby? No clues in the question about my preference you'll notice.

    Re - 'pack a pastie'

    Although I know Ivan is partial to Hestons finest, my guess is it will be Monks Yard cafe.

    No, but we could visit the chefs before gobbling up the monk's yard.

    Let it be a a mystery, if you go on ahead you'll get lost!
