Weston is hosting an Iron Man event today. Starting at around 7, when the tide will be right up, there is a 1 mile swim, a 60 mile bike event and a half marathon to finish. The cycle route covers two ascents of Cheddar Gorge which should be challenging. Despite it being the perfect weather conditions for such an event, I will leave them to it. Interestingly, the last runner was still running on the beach 8 hours after the start.
Sweet's Tea Rooms
Good place for a cup of tea. This is on the road between Wedmore and West Hay. This Tea room/cafe serves a wide variety of food and from the number of cyclists gathered around, it is a popular place with riders. The sign states there is a museum on site with a varied collection of stuff gathered by the Sweet family over a number of years. Must have a look next time.
Seen near Mark, this grey Heron was right by the side of the road and never moved when I first went by. Returning immediately in stalking mode, complete with Hi-Vis orange cycling top, he flew away but landed a hundred yards away. Not a brilliant photo but a memory never the less.
Satisfied with just under 47 miles, this took the week efforts up to 106 miles. Job done.
