Over the Mendips 32

Another good day out there.  Warm, not too windy, not too sunny.  Decided to get some 'hill training' in as myself and some Old Gits are riding the Great Weston Ride in July which is at least 56 miles, part of which is over the Mendip Hills.  As most to the rides I undertake are on the Somerset Levels (the clue is in the name) it would be prudent to start climbing.

Went out towards Bristol and turned up onto the Mendip Hills at Churchill.  It was quite a climb, about 500 feet over 3 miles, to the top before descending into Cheddar.  Back through Axbridge and East Brent.  Tough going at times but worth the effort.  Covered 32 miles and a total of 1,400 feet climbing.
