Another cool 5 degree ride around the mendips today with Burrington coombe and Cheddar gorge under the belt.

on top of the Mendips, looking over to Wales.
Image

some of the local wildlife!
Image

the start of Cheddar Gorge proper...
Image

the gorge was closed to the masses due to rockfalls, check out the foreground for evidence! Some big lumpy stuff strewn all over the place
Image

just after the people the road heads left and up the 'wall' as I call it, a few pedal strokes of hell then a nice steady climb back up to the top of the mendips..

morning fog in the south bay area

top of Highland Road (which turns into Summit Rd/Highway 35) - one of my favorite areas

Image

Mt. Umunhum, one of the highest peaks in the bay area (about 3,500 ft high). That 'cube' is more than five stories tall, and is an abandoned radar tower from the cold war era. It is actually closed to the public because there are remnants of radioactive waste, but you can get as far as a locked gate a couple hundred meters from the top. Local government is actually in the process of developing a plan to clean up the area and open it up to the public in a few years.

@ 2100m after climbing up from Vilaflor in Tenerife. 24c at Sea Level in December but about 8c where this was taken. The descent soon warms you up though :thumbup:
