    Good job I left it 'til tonight because yesterday the bbc reckoned that Saturday would be a write off. Looks okay now, but that nagging SW wind continues. However, we can't keep going South!!!

    Let's ride to the home of Reg Harris' mate, taking in the joys of Burrington and the descents into Shit n' and Wells.

    If the weather should turn out wet, we'll ditch out at Hartley's.

    Route out will be Puxton, Sandford, Churchill should you wish to latch on.

    This week's guest 'gottagetback' can be the Railway Inn, (lovely food and a full range of ciders.)

    Don't forget to book your place for the Christmas Meal; we're currently up to 15, so it should be a riot.

    Had to laugh today, today's ride will go down in the history books as the "great mutiny" As I waited in Sandford expecting a full herd of cyclists all that appears was Ivan and his three loyal ducklings following behind. Anyway we headed up Burington, mendip motorway down into the Mallet, ended up in Wells's Weatherspoon. Before anyone else says this, cycling in a group is just like cycling on your own but with more people (you had to be there) anyway hope all you defectors had a good ride to Glastonbury I expect you'll all get a good telling off next Saturday that's if you were able to navigate back from Glastonbury without getting lost.

    Hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and New Year.

    That's all very well, but did you make it worthwhile and get the £1.99 deal at Wizzerspoons?

    Another ride to add to the anals of CG history.

    glad i'm not a mate of baron banana's. with mates like him, who needs enemies? i guess forgetting to turn up at a friend's first ride with the group can be forgiven, if measured in isolation; but to tell said friend that the ride was fancy dress (a week early) is frankly inexcusable. still, rugby shorts on a club ride was a novel first.

    anyway, despite having the misfortune to know the baron, mr mccavity seemed a decent sort and even had the prowess to beat red leader one up burrington, (unbelievable i hear you cry!!!?)

    .... who's for a trip to gran canaria next summer, route around the main town looks interesting...
