Old Gits to Burnham 24+

Tuesday, Old Gits day.  It is the first Tuesday in the month which means we have a later start and head south to Burnham on Sea.  Normally a fairly easy one this as a lot of the route is on the flat.  Plenty of layers on today but surprisingly, it felt quite warm out there. It was foggy, consequently no wind.  Not bad conditions at all.  A good turn out as well, 13 in all.

Santa at the farm

After coffee and a bacon roll at Reeds Hotel in Burnham, headed back and called in to Westcroft Farm in Berrow for some of the mob to load up with eggs.  Out the front were these two Santas, the first one, the reindeers had fallen over and had to be revived.

Weston Pier

Finished the ride at my apartment block but as it was such a pleasant morning, I carried on with a couple of others and cycled the length of the prom to add a couple of miles on.  Near the pier were quite a few students from the nearby technical college taking photographs of anything and everything, obviously on some sort of photographic assignment.  Not to be outdone, I slowed down and looked for something to add to this blog and this atmospheric shot is the result.  If you go down to the tech there will be 280 more like this sans bike of course!

24 plus miles in good company without the need for hand warmers.  Result
