This can be a tricky one. Best time to ride this road is on a weekday. Cheddar gorge gets overrun with tourists and cyclists. I prefer this route in an anticlockwise direction. Very rarely see any police up on the Mendips. There is some seriously quick roads up there. The Waterfall Cafe in Cheddar is very bike friendly and is a popular meeting place Enjoy and take it steady in Cheddar Gorge.
Nice road with some good fast sweepers and short straights. Watch out for the Dibble hiding in lay bys. Gatso westbound on A5 before A444 turn and in Overseal 30 zone
