Weston Super Mare Station
This is stuck in the 50s, an old fashioned Station which is on a loop line from the main Bristol Plymouth line. Fortunately, most trains call at Platform 2, regardless of which way they are travelling which cuts out the need to carry the bike up and over the lines. Just two carriages today, neither of which had provision for bikes so had to clutter up the doorway and move it at the couple of stops before Taunton.
Could not get away with an easy exit from the platform. The line is higher than the road so whichever platform is used, it means going down two flights of stairs. A clever device at the top of the stairs is triggered by movement and a speaker on the wall tells passengers to use the handrail for safety.
Bay View Cafe Burnham
Used the A38 through Taunton and Bridgwater and although a major trunk road is not too busy with traffic as the M5 runs virtually alongside it. Nothing too exciting to photograph on the way back. Called in at Burnham at this cafe on the promenade and had cheese on toast and a cup of tea. This was at 21 miles so the last 11 were a bit of a doddle to be honest.
Burnham on Sea
Just a general view across the sand flats at Burnham. On a clear day North Devon, including Hinckley Point nuclear station, and Wales are easily seen.
A nice ride despite getting a bit splattered from surface water. 32 miles covered today.
