Won't be much dry around here after this week.
WSM and surrounding area is pretty much at sea level except Weston woods but that's quite small, you'd be better heading further inland to the mendip ridge, it starts only a handful of miles inland but there's much more to play with there.

There is some good riding to be had up on the Mendips but not if it’s been wet as the mud has superglue properties up there.

I’d head to the Quantocks (near Taunton), lots of route options and it drains much better than the mendips.

North of Cardiff, there is a ton of trails and terrain. Cwm carn trail centre and lots of gravel too :-bd

Thanks all... basically I'll be finishing up on the Dartmoor bivy on the 18th aft. Then working in Wales Carmarthen on the 20th. So between that time if I got bored making my way across the South West I wouldn't mind getting some local riding in (though I'll probably be too knackered as Dartmoor sounds potentially squelchy).

Just checked the map and Quantocks doesn't sound too bad an idea. Thanks again...
