Taking full advantage of a day off work and the nice weather I headed out on the Hemlock for a spin round a route I’ve not ridden for a few years. There’s a fairly hefty climb at the start, but that’s pretty much all the ascending done in one chunk. After that there are two ace fast descents, followed by some hidden singletrack which runs alongside the Bristol-Bath cycle track. It’s literally 10 feet away but most people don’t know it’s there.
11 leisurely miles in the sunshine, and home to refuel with chocolate.
