The well worn route around the back of Dunster and up to Wheddon Cross and I was feeling really good. I was riding at a good pace for me and looking at my Strava stats it was my quickest ever time. In a year I can now ride to the top of the hill without stopping and I've knocked about ten minutes off the time. Lets hope there's no olympic coaches reading they might want a drugs test, I'd fail ! A quick breather at the bus stop and then up the hill to the Brendons.
As I cleared the tree line I could see the clouds looming in the distance and after another short steep bit I was in the clouds and the road was covered in mud. Vision must of gone down to about twenty foot for a bit which made things interesting as I was now heading downhill.

|A proper castle in the mist.......|
