    Once more rain is currently forecast at lunchtime and, I'm sure, once more it'll turn out dry.

    Nevertheless, we'll hedge our bets and aim for a 66.66 miler. This time we'll revisit Fyne Court and it's fine cuisine, (bacon sandwiches anyone?)

    Route out will be Sea front, Anchor, Jeannie's bogs once more. Tri - option can be the coffee machine at Hayers on Locking Road.

    Nice short ride to Rich's (cider farm , not bed) despite surrounding rain clouds the sensible few got home in the dry. Even had time to ride into a Yaris that pulled out on us, dialogue between motorist and cyclist was of the usual form; 'really sorry are you okay? - yes - is your bike okay? - yes... oh I see, you had a very obscured view up the road, don't worry it couldn't be helped, I don't think I've damaged your car, are you okay? - I'm fine, sorry- no problem, these things happen.

    Nick said to me earlier in the ride, it's not that all motorists or cyclists are prats, it's that some people are prats, some drive cars and some ride bikes. How prophetic.

    ... anyway, glad I got home before the real rain started.
