I head straight for the bar at the river mouth since it’s reliable, if a little deeper. The water comes up to my neck, but the weight of the bike above my head keeps me planted on the gravel even as waves lap my chin.
Blimey. Following Alan’s line was mid thigh deep after a very wet night in early May. Just wet socks and shoes. It’s a bath of sorts I s’pose.

I did wonder about that bit - I think a few folk went that way in '13 or '14 and suggested it was shallower.... On the line (or slightly downstream of it) has worked for me....

I followed the line, and managed to not get my shorts wet once i rolled them right up. It was very close though with the waves!
