    saturday's ride 7/7

    Post  anti-climb max on Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:03 pm

    this Saturday's planned 100 looking doubtful due to inclemency, we may just ride 50 miles, call it a day, and come back.

    if it does go ahead, it might be to berkley, or sherborne, or shaftesbury, or bradford-on-avon (or anywhere else within a 50 mile radius.)


    i'd be grateful if somebody could bring a dice to help my decision making capabilities.

    i hope you all feel that this constitutes an update.

    Thanks for the update Ivan.

    metcheck.com are predicting 8.4mm of rain during the morning so probably wise to postpone the 100 miler :-)

    If we stay local then we can count on your uncanny ability to dodge the showers.

    Do you remember that TV program - 'The Diceman'? Wonder what ever happened to him :-)

    Bunch of lightweights! Of course I have a chest infection so I'm not allowed out in the wet. Certainly won't do 100 miler tomorrow but will put up with a light shower and a short ride.

    Only three of us brave enough to tackle the non stop rain - Ivan, Richard & Martin.

    With the poor weather we decided to go to Sweets.

    Ivan had a puncture but managed to make it to Sweets before it needed changing.

    The only stat you need is that I spent more time on other peoples back wheels than anyone else. I was just glad I wasn't the only mad fool to turn up at Priory in the morning! If I see any ads for second hand bikes this year that say 'dry miles only' I think it will be hard to believe.
