They looked as hot as we were and I suspect would have liked to be in the rain at Cw...

Hi Carl

It should be Martin Nigel Adrian Geoff Conrad and Me . I think we are going to be there for the formal dinner and drinks on saturday night with accomodation at the 5 star Wheddon Cross Hilton with pool.

I'm told the forecast is good ( but they always say that don't they ?)

Hi

You could try the Sustrans routes I think route 51 " Culbone Way " goes SW from Minehead but unfortunately as Martin says the SWCP is off limits. :(

Have a look at the Sustrans website ( get Cycling section South West)
