    Thanks for coming out chaps - that was indeed a lovely evening.

    And @howradmichello , you were dead right - we were nearly killed by two rampaging deer after we disturbed them stealing conkers from someone's back garden.

    Good work chaps.

    Yeah that route out is actually pretty good providing you have a bit of time on your side (it adds a couple of miles over the most direct/hellish routes I think). Certainly, for where you are based, it's worth a shot..

    At the risk of flogging a dead horse... (but you'll be begging for dry evenings like this in a months time so pull your fingers out!)

    38 miles featuring live badgers and dead squirrels...

    Just seen this update from Kurt... yikes.. :(

    ""This afternoon - my HR spike up over 210 and wouldn't come back down below 170 after 30 minutes so against my will, Alicia made me ride over to the urgent care. At urgent care my HR was 65 but garmin was recording 170. The top half of my heart was beating at 170 and the bottom half was beating at 65. So they hooked me up to an EKG and determined I was in Atrial Fibrillation and was sent over to the Heart Hospital. By the time I got to the Heart Hospital my heart was beating normally again. They took blood and determined my thyroid is wack and that I was dehydrated. I now wear a live tracking heart rate monitor and have an appointment with a cardiologist. No restriction on my activities for now. May sleep in tomorrow or may ride not sure how I'm feeling about all this. It was epic enough before - I don't need anything else to make this more challenging.."

    I've never actually used one but it sounds like the light button should give you that option..?
