It's good! Where will you be based?
Subject to how my new head cold progresses, I'm thinking of heading up Cheddar Gorge via Ebbor Gorge next week (will be first time visit for me), travelling from Longleat CP. Originally, I had idea of cycling to Warminster from Southampton, but the new cold and a cheap £6-50 Advance ticket means I will almost certainly catch the train there and I've got the same option coming home (both with a cycle reservation spot).
My big dilemma is which bike to take... The Cube would be less mass to fight against gravity on the hills, by at least ~3Kg, but I'm slightly concerned by recent weather (Monday is predicted to be approx -1C at 0600), plus I would be limited to only using the bike when staying with it. If I take the Voodoo, I have the option of taking my Gravdal studded tyres, plus a set of tyres anywhere from 28-60mm with the 29er wheelset. I'd also feel less concerned about using the Voodoo around the CP campus with decent locks.
If it was spring/summer, I'd take the Cube, it would be an easy choice. It's just so ironic that I've wanted to take a bike to CP for the last ~6 years rather than hire a ~£30 BSO for the week just to use around campus, I then get into cycling for fitness this year and have the chance to take a bike, but I now like the idea of going off-campus and I come down with a cold during an autumnal wet/nippy spell just before the break!
Looks like the driest and sunniest day is going to be Monday, maybe I should jump off the train and head straight there?
North Bristol, consider heading over the bridge to the forest of dean or up to the cotswolds
Seconding that! What gearing are you running on your Wazoo? I'd be running out of gears for the flat / downhill sections on mine. Only changes on mine are change of shifters and 9 speed cassette, still the same top end gear.
