• Oh and bigup to mdja for bringing a map...or we'd all have been fucked! Plus I owe you an inner tube.

    The map is now dried out and fully operational again. Don't worry about the tube, you bought me a pint!

  • Yeah, great stuff everyone - really enjoyed that. The great thing about that ride is that I can never use "it's too wet" as an excuse not to cycle again!
    Good to meet everyone, and definitely up for the next one, when/wherever it may be.

    PS velocity boy - Cheers for the lend of your waterproof!

  • Shit sound like it was good fun. I was hung over as predicted so I disidedto just stay and do the bad thing all day.

  • So I was chatting to a friend last night and got onto the subject of cycling...

    friend: "A friend of mine was complaining that she was driving down the A13 and saw a bunch of cyclists going down it. They must be crazy"
    me: "Was that a couple of weeks ago?"
    friend: "Yes"
    me: "When it was pouring with rain?"
    friend:"Yes"
    me: "Oh, yes, that was us"
    friend: "You guys are mad"
