    Anyone had any thoughts on tomorrow's ride? Weather is actually meant to be okay for a change so I might leave my snorkel and flippers at home!

    I feel a 100 miler coming on! The forecast is good it just depends whether Gordon is feeling up to it.
    I'm going to pack my swimming trunks for the beach :-)

    Well, if you're going to bring your swimming trunks you might as well bring a picnic hamper, money for ice cream and lashings of ginger beer! Just noticed the text at the top of the screen - rides between 60 and 80 miles. That's not right - it was 82 last week and 50 the week before. Someone is bound to complain!

    A pat on the back all round me thinks. Wouldn't have got to Glastonbury without rslicker and would have given up on the A370 without Martin. Had 115 miles on the clock when I got in but I think my milage is slightly higher than the true figure.

    Enjoyed (!) the ride despite bike issues. The better weather has given me a tan in one day! Will take it easy in front of the TV tomorrow watching the Wiggo show roll on to the Champes Elysee.
