An 'away day' ride today. Started at Wells Leisure Centre, via Wookey Hole, around the Somerset levels, and back to Wells.
A fairly easy ride with just a few short hills near the start and finish.
At one point, a river ran along the road, forcing us to walk on the raised walkway alongside what could be the longest ford in the country.
Sightings of Kingfisher, Heron and other waterfowl added further interest to a most enjoyable ride.
