    Usual time and place to start but no idea where we are going but my guess is Bruton or Hartleys.

    Weather looks iffy for tomorrow so may be low turn out again. Enjoyed the ride to Frome so that's always a possibility.

    Ride info

    Ride details:-

    It was a fast ride to Langport.

    Unfortunately on the way back just outside Glastonbury Jennie had a rear flat and we spent quite a bit of time trying to get the valve extender to seal with the inner tube valve so we could pumb it up. This involved a trip to a bike shop in Glastonbury for a replacement valve extension but they had never heard of such a device! In the end we bodged it with some ptfe tape.

    Cafe stop was at The Potting Shed - Langport

    Ride Length = 80 miles

    Average speed = 16.6 mph

    Elevation gain = 2481 feet

    You don't know how inappropriate that sounds - flat rear, valve extensions and pumping! Stats won't look too good with that delay in the middle.
