    Good turn out for a weekday ride - Ivan and me. Forecast was iffy - possibility of rain about 10:00 and it was a bit brass monkeys - so we headed off to Sweets via Sandford, Cheddar and Wedmore. Weather just about held up okay - about force 6 from the south with a mixture of sleat, rain and snow.

    Sweets was heaving as you'd expect on a day like this - just Ivan and me. Splashed out on a breakfast each - Ivan the large and me the small - and with fuel in out bellies and a tail wind (not the beans) we whipped home like greyhounds on mustard. Treated myself to a Bleadon Hill before getting in at the very civilised time of 12:30.

    Almost forgot the ride stats: some miles done quite slowly, others done quite quickly, a few small hills and some flat bits too. Who needs a Garmin!
