Burrington Combe Bail Out 30

Burrington Combe is a gorge on the north side of the Mendip Hills.  Like Cheddar Gorge, it is a magnet for cyclists as a bit of a climbing test peaking at about 900' above sea level.  Thought it might be a challenge today to do this but settled for about a third of the way up stopping at a pub for a cup of tea!

Burrington Inn

This is about 15 miles from home and an ideal time to stop for tea.  Working out the way back to Weston from the top (taking into account the wind direction) this was going to be a bit more than anticipated so decided to leave this for another day.  Certainly achievable, in fact this was on the route of the Great Weston ride so I have done this before.

Crocuses or crocii?

Leaving Burrington on the way back, noticed this riot of colour in the driveway of a large house in Langford Lane.  A few crocuses planted there.

30 miles covered today. Nice weather but a bit blustery at times.
