West Bay Early Birds

I’m running out of ideas for the title of posts.  But as a small group of us* got together at 8am today and rode our bikes to West Bay…and saw some starlings, let’s call this post “West Bay Early Birds“.

I put a route together the day before. Going there, we went via Turnworth, Winterborne Whitchurch, Puddletown, Troy Town, West Stafford,  Winterborne Herringston, Martinstown, Hardy’s Monument, Abbotsbury via Bishop’s Road and Burton Bradstock. On the way back, Burton Bradstock, Litten Cheney, Maiden Newton, Cerne Abbas, Pulham, King’s Stag and Hazelbury Bryan. About 80 miles in total.

Leaving at 8am was a great idea and one this small group of riders will do again, especially at this time of year.  It was a nice cool start, wasn’t too busy at West Bay by the time we got there and we were all back home by 12:30 which meant we still had the afternoon to do all those family related things that are expected of us!
