    Saturday 20th Oct - Bruton

    A good number of riders turned up for a cold start. Most decided to stop at Rocky Mountain with just 6 continuing on for morning prayers at The Chapel in Bruton, where I had the pleasure of Jeanie flicking hot wax on me when she accidently upset the candle on the table.
    It was a quick pace on the way back but we did have a second stop at Heapies!

    I'm glad you explained the reason for the hot wax. Clearly not some attempt to make you go faster by removing your bodily hair!

    We had a good ride too - quite cold descending off the Mendips and through Wells. Treacherous roads past Fenny Castle - thin film of wet mud over the road. Got to Westhay and Mark cranked it up to 26mph across to Burtle. Continued to take turns at the front and kept this up pretty much to Mark with a brief stop for Jelly Babies at the sluice gate.

    Actually got home at a reasonale time and with some energy left to spare!

    Surprised Stubble07 has time to ride his bike. Thought he'd be busy having just released his latest Bond film.
