    Only three riders showed up! - Paul, Neil and myself. We were just about to set off when we got a call from Ivan who had just gotten out of bed - must have been a good New Years eve! I got a puncture just after Sainsburys due to a small shard of glass. I may invest in some kevlar tyre liners.
    Heavy drizzle set in as we made our way towards Bristol. Neil was suffering after a heavy bout of the flu so we made sure we looked after him by dropping him when ever possible :-).
    We made it to Blaise Castle but could'nt take in the usual good view over Avonmouth because of low cloud. Enjoyed some very nice choc peppermint shortbread.
    Uneventful journey home. Average speed seemed higher than the stats recoreded.
