But Mahagonny was good, nearly foiled by the west end power cuts.
Thanks everyone for another great ride. Good pace and great company. Had a bit of a spill on the way home from the station sadly. Aqua planed around a round-a-bout in walthamstow and hit the black top. Few bruises on several parts of the body but nothing serious. Hope everyone got home safe
Everybody will probably end up being lost in the middle of nowhere forever.
I agree. Mahagonny was brilliant. The staging was some of the best I've seen at ROH.
I did miss the power of a full orchestra though.
Also, due to power failures there were no bar services. Perfect excise to smuggle Tesco tramp beers into our box. Happy days.
After a consultation with Dr Google, it seems likely that what happened to me last night was exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, brought about by inhalation of too much cold air. Off to to doc to get me a prescription for some short-acting β2-agonists.
Thanks for helping me along after that everyone. It's pretty scary when you suddenly can't breathe!
Blimey, sounds terrifying. Hope you recover well.
you recovered well last night @Doctor_Cake. was a pleasure riding with you and @blowfish. and then of course the rest of the crew which were the same riders from the Surrey Season opener a couple of weeks back.
great leading again @middleofnowhere . and good to see LFGSS CC get it's first race win in the colours. think i have a crappy picture from the pub at the end which show you and @rhowe in the jerseys.
@clintsmoker. glad you are okay dude. as said by message last night. get a bit of rest over the easter break and let that footie injury and now ride related rippage heal up.
really enjoying this WNKR stuff. group of 8 last night was perfect and harks back to the old days before the numbers made the rides a little harder to manage.
Glad it's nothing serious (assuming it's not serious?) any way to prevent it?

Lovely riding with you too. And was a very nice first ride of the season, though I could have done without the puncture.. looking forward to the next one already =)
After you folks had scampered off to get the train we got chatting to the dude sat at the bar who suddenly announced... "as you all came through the door I thought it must be the Big Bearded Cycling Club!"
Still, this is a marginal upgrade on the "Lonely Gay Bike Society" moniker previously bestowed upon us during a solstice ride pub stop - or, indeed, the "oh look, it's the CTC!" cry that rang out at the riverside on Katy's wild swimming jaunt.
Surely any official Big Bearded Cycling Club events would have to have a greater than 37.5% beard incidence level.
