Usual route to Burnham on Sea 27

The terrain from Weston to Burnham is perfect for my fitness levels and abilities.  Don't do hills very well so the Somerset Levels is the perfect place to go. The occasional railway or motorway bridges are no problem and the only downside is it does mean using the same roads on a regular basis.  Luckily there are enough variations to make them interesting although the photo opportunities are restricted.

Brean Down

One of the last hills in the Mendip chain, Brean Down juts out into the Severn Estuary and is a popular beauty spot visited by locals and tourists alike. It is only about a mile from where I live but to reach it means a 9 mile ride!  Thankfully a local group have sorted out a cycle path that crosses the River Axe which will shorten the distance by about 5 miles, and, on a traffic free cycle path.  This is due to open on the 1st May.  Can't wait.

27 miles covered today, target for the week exceeded so job done.
