Hi all my Facebook cycling friends, a change of plan for this Sunday's rides. Instead of Wells and Godney, it's two routes to Chard. Apparently Double Gate Farm at Godney aren't opening their cafe until March this year so it's all change. I've scouted the Chard routes (well the mucky bits) and conditions are not too bad and with another couple of dry days all should be well for our Sunday outings. The medium route goes up the long but gradual climb to the Eagle Tavern, before the coffee stop at the Barley Mow Farm Shop on the A30 above Chard. The Short ride takes a pleasantly undulating route to the Potting Shed Cafe at the Chard Garden Centre. See you all at Mudford Road Recreation Ground at 9am for what looks to be the first touch of Spring.
