    Thanks very much for organising this Dan - and for waiting for Matthias and I to finish storm dodging. I really enjoyed it. I had no idea we were going to make up 50% of the riders, so I'm sorry we held you up a bit - that is some epic bedwetting for a ride that ended up being 100% rain-free!

    As for those hills, apparently one of those legbreakers topped out at 28.6% and I don't think Matthias even got out of the saddle whilst I was wheel-spinning madly.

    Dan, I can't believe you went out for a run this morning - it's only a matter time before you are buying a wetsuit and wearing your helmet backwards..

    Hey Matthais - I'm going to aim to get to Sandgate St for 9am (even if it's still raining) as it will be too late if I wait much longer than that I think.

    major thunderstorm in North London right now. I'm going to delay my start slightly and hope it eases off a bit - I'll try and catch you up but don't wait for me!

    Anyone fancy another spin round it next week (if I can shift enough of the porridge that seems to be filling my lungs)?

    I wouldn't object, although I expect Howrad would (new gearing required)!

    I can't do Wednesday though unfortunately, going t'footy...

    BUT - it was great, if a little random...

    rhow and BB punctured on the way, so DNS for them.

    For some reason that route wouldn't give either of the two Garmins we had turn-by-turn directions (it was enabled) and I don't think any of us had ridden it before. Ordinarily that's not an issue but this route obviously crosses itself 4 times - so at each point we had a 50/50 shot as to which was the correct way. Amazingly I checked when we got back and apparently we got it right every time, albeit with a bit of faffing...

    Barely, without that woman barking in your ear we are like new born foals stumbling around in the dark..
