Hi all. I happened to ride out on some of route planned for next weekend this afternoon and hope the following will help to keep you all safe.

1. Lots of the corn harvest has not happened in this area and the weather is looking good for that weekend so there will be
a. Slow moving machinery around with poor visibility.
b. Wet fields will mean mud being brought out onto the roads and some ag vehicle lights may be partially obscured.
c. There may be grain spilled from overfilled trailers, particularly on the outside of bends.

I apologise in advance on behalf of my fellow farmers but things are getting desperate now and many are seeing their livelyhoods starting to rot. My father has never known a harvest this late and he is in his 70's.

2. The c**p weather has caused numerous washouts onto the highway with gravel sticks and mud being deposited and water flowing across the roads. It may be gone by then but given the weather forecast for the mid-week, dont bank on it. Very bad one on the Minehead by-pass. Numerous ones and lots of water flowing down the road edges on some of the roads around Wheddon cross. Usually no warning signs.

3. There is a lot of leaf and fine stick right in the centre of some carriageways, partly due to hedgetrimming operations and the wet weather causing cars to splash it out from the verges.

4. The tar it and grit brigade have been out in force in places so there is loose gravel on some junctions to side roads.

5. Road through Washford village (between Williton and Minehead) has lots of loose fine grit all over the road but particularly on the centre and road edges.

6. Lots of flood warning signs out but floods are mostly gone but there is left over debris.

To make my ride really crap out, 40 miles from home I found a small nail in the rear tyre smack in the centre of the tread area too and so that and the bad road surfaces reminded me nicely of riding my old Yam TY175 trials bike with deliberately soft tyres about 25 years ago. Tyre is Bridgestone and has loads of life yet so any recommendations as to where I should take it? Bit new to this still and this is the first puncture. Tyre should be OK as it did not go totally flat, just down to 12 psi and not too warm.

If we're not harvesting next weekend then I hope to join you but if not then please ride safe and have a great day out.

Anyone booked in at the Taunton Travelodge? I'm hoping to come down but the only rooms available there are 56 - that's out of my budget. Can't ride down on the morning as it would be a 6AM start or even earlier and I don;t fancy riding 150 miles before AND after the ride. Will see if I can find a cheap B&B in the area but will probably wait till Thursday/Friday even to decide. Would be a shame to miss it as I've made the last 8 (?) rideouts.
I know Bish ain't travelling down for this one as Mrs. Bish is about 8 months gone and there's a history of early arrivals in the family so he can't risk it.

Local knowledge you say,

Myself and Andrew, rode the Dunster road as part of a charity ride yesterday, it got worse the further into the valley you got, but the main bit from the main road to Wheddon Cross still good, new tarmac and suprisingly still quite clean, all this rain must have washed it,

failing alll that I recommend the Avon Storms i just put on me bike,

Please can you fix it for me to have nice weather in Scotland from the 20th to the 27th. Every time I've had leave from work this year Noah has sailed past my upstairs windows.

Thanks
