    Saturday 20th February - Desparately seeking riders who are into watersports

    The only thing that makes this coming Saturday's forecast more attractive than the previous two is the fact that this Sunday's forecast is currently more dire.

    There is a bit of hope as John Kettley, I think that was his name.... he's a weather man..... and so is Michael Fish; (apologies for the unnecessary sub-clause,) (apologies for the unnecessary apology, thus creating a further sub-clause, whilst apologising for the unnecessary sub-clause,).... said that there was a 'certain degree of uncertainty' regarding the proximity of the front on Saturday (but if the Tommy's do their usual good BIT against those horrid Bosch then the front could be a good bit closer to Belgium.) I'm not sure whether that'll be good or bad, but I do know that I have a 'certain degree of uncertainty' in the front department too.

    Hey ho! It might rain, it might not. So usual route (Burnham.... Watchfield... Sweets etc) applies, however, if it manages to stay dry we'll head down to Maunsell Lock or similar to take advantage of the 50mph South Westerley forecast from noon (though there is a certain degree of uncertainty about that.)

    Route out will be Toll Road, Sea Front, Anchor should you wish to latch on.

    UPDATE

    It's pissing down tomorrow! Dryish Sunday. Unless your attending church I think Sunday may be the wise choice.

    As anybody with half a brain could predict, the moment I called a Saturday ride, the forecast for Sunday improved. I concur, if wet on Saturday morning as forecast we'll have a stab at Sunday..... Watch this space.

    PS Saturday ride is on if dry. If wet check forum for Sunday arrangements.
