I did about 50 miles around the Quantock area. To the west of Bridgwater the scenery is incredible, as you can see from some of these pics.
At the highest point in the hills, just before a big descent through heath and woodland on a difficult dry creek bed.
Typical view of the heathland.
Road heading up, up, up.
The dry creekbed I negotiated my heavy bike down and through.
Path along a ridge.
I joined these mountain bikers for an hour or so, and heard a child ask his father: "Why does that guy have to carry all the bags?" haha.
In the hills, scenery very much what I imagine Canada is like.
Autumnal colours on a (dead?) tree.
One of my sandals fell from my bike on a rough section of track. Backtracked a mile or so and thankfully found it.
Looking back along one of the many tracks heading up into the hills.
Looking out from Triscombe stone.
Tree on the way back to Bridgwater.
A great day was had by all (me). A couple of snags and a beer with mates on the beach back home would probably be the only thing topping it.
