    if bbc have got it right saturday is going to be marti pellow, so i don't really care where we go if this is the case; probably sweets or funny castle, perhaps we can have some fun on godney moor!

    on a brighter note, i'm off next week so if there happens to be a dry day then call me for a ride.

    yours ivan (wishing i was lucky)

    PS if by some miracle it's dry, we'll head for langport. at least we'll get blown home!

    Yep - Here Comes the Rain Again. Same old dilemma - Should I Stay or Should I Go? I suppose if you can't decide where to go we'll be on a Road to Nowhere and if it does actually rain I'll be thinking "What have I done to Deserve This?". See you at 8:15.

    Around 14 runners and riders turned up for the damp start at Priory. Burns the Baker joined us at Banwell Castle for a moderately paced ride to Langport. Ivan's gears were up and down more times that a whore's drawers - problem with his shifters - but he successfully negotiated Billings Hill and High Ham.

    The vets stopped off at Truckers leaving 8 to head to Langport. No damsons (!) in distress this week to distract me from the ride. Pedwell Hill looked a tad greasy but all got down safely.

    Service from the giggle girls was a little slow in the potting shed. I think the sight of a group of handsome young men in licra was putting them off the task in hand.

    Some interesting car parking in Langport. I especially liked the one on the pavement with the front end missing! Not a belt back but a reasonable lick saw us return to WSM with an average of 18mph over a distance of 68 miles.
    OJC - nil
    Knacker Factor - 6/10
    Rate the Cake - 0/10 - no-one had a cake as far as I can remember!
