    It is worth mentioning that even in between the major climbs, it's a constant up and down. Very little real flat.

    Thought I'd wade in with some local knowledge - it's pretty flat between Bristol and the Mendips, then after Cheddar until the Blagdon climb you got the Somerset Levels which is, uh, really flat. Fair enough it's pretty lumpy after the Blagdon climb all the way to Exmouth then...

    i've been up blagdon on the ss before. seem to remember some steep, then a hairpin then some steep being the worst bits.

    is the date for this 08/08 or 06/08? their site doesn't seem so sure.

    yeah, and this thread has become 'potentially spotted in the future in devon and somerset. in the dark' guess it's worth a thread if a fair contingent from 'yer are thinking of going
