A mid-May tour around the many small hillocks and valleys to the north-east of Bridport. The geology of the area – with hard Greensands capping much softer rocks beneath – has resulted in deeply incised valleys that weave and snake their way almost at random! Not the easiest of areas to cycle around, good brakes are essential, excellent views of the scenery at many places throughout the area make the effort worthwhile though.
