    This has been amended, please see further posting below....

    Well...... at least Saturday looks dry!!! Surprised

    Last night they forecast a 40mph NNW wind for Saturday morning, this morning they brought that down to 20mph, this evening it's back up to 40mph (I don't think they know.)

    It's going to be cold and bright and (maybe) very windy.

    But with a Northerly breeze/gale/storm/hurricane in the offing we'll head straight into it in the hope that it'll blow us home.

    Destination will depend on the conditions but we will get to Bristol. This could be where we all stop, but if conditions allow there will be a Chep*#ow option for those who wish to stretch their legs.

    Route out will be the classic Ebdon-A370-Congresbury, Yatton and we may make a second group ascent of the climb out of Portbury; which will be more interesting (for those at the front) now that you know it.

    This week's gotta get back option can be the cafe at Puxton Park (check seats for infant vomit before sitting down.)

    I think you may have forgotten or not been told but it is Free breakfast Saturday at Barton Camp. Dave Jones and all the ladies will have bacon and eggs for 3 meals a day and the next 6 months if you don't turn up!!

    Just testing, just testing!!

    This year the charity ride to barton camp will be raising funds for amnesic men in their 50's. If only I'd listened to myself when I announced the President's ride last week.

    Yes, it's that time of year again. The annual ride to Barton Camp.

    We'll head out via Puxton and Sandford and get to Barton around 11.

    breakfast and jelly babies for a 5 english pound donation, can't say fairer than that.
