What a terrible few days weather wise, rain, wind and then a bit more. I was determined to go out and of course had planned a route. When I woke it was still a bit dull, I checked the local news and social media to check conditions. Pictures of flooded streets in the town and stories of blocked roads east of town but no mention of west. I got ready and headed out on my planned route, the roads were covered in debris and big puddles lined my route to Porlock. I must thank that Volvo driver for going through one particular puddle at sixty as I went through it, cheers ! I got to Porlock only to find signs telling the me the Toll road was closed so I decided to head down to the Weir instead. I only got half way and found a bloody great puddle which I didn't really fancy heading through so decided to head back to town and do a loop.
|No I'm not going the other way....|
|Big puddle round the bend....|
Glad I got out but glad I didn't venture anywhere too rural as lanes around here can be a bit rough at the best of times, here's the Strava bit......
