Day 0: Thursday 12-07-2018

Eight of us set out for Pontins Sand Bay near Weston Super Mare to start the 2018 Kingstrust C2C. What a blast from the past this relic of the 1950s was with its concrete chalets. We loved it. Tomorrow seven of us will cycle 240 miles across the south of England to Southend on Sea, One of us will drive the support van.
