I hope to be out tonight - probably a 8:30 to 9pm landing....


Spiritual Home anyway?
Yeah why not, I can make it over for tea as the alternative is me cooking tuna and pasta for myself  :thumbsup:  Probably 8pm.

Anyone else?

So, Spiritual Home tomorrow. Weather is set to be fair (in as much as it'll be dry and warm, but there's a dastardly westerly that won't make the return journey as pleasant as it might otherwise be, for some!)

I'm sure there'll be some chat about BCM and TD, and recruitment for an ACME peleton riding Hellfire on the first weekend of August.

Hoping to be there, checking out a rebuilt dyno light (replacement for the one that died on A&S route check!).

If anyone is interested I’m planning on a daytime spin on Friday as forecast is a bit too windy. I was planning on a gentle amble to the SH for lunch. I was also thinking of reacquainted myself with TMNH. Feel free to join me if you’ve got nothing betterer to do.

You beat me to that question. Last week before the landlord heads stateside, so somewhere within his reach would be useful (if he is around). Given his current level of fitness, I'd say within his reach is going to be quite a large radius!

Millibar?
You can’t just call time out and stroll on into the beach if you don’t like the way things are goin’.

Works for me. Off-road route most of the way.

Breaking news .... your mojo has been spotted. It's currently residing in the Millibar waiting for you!

That sounds rather like bikepacking!

I’m aiming for 8pm. Not been to the Millibar before. Assume there’s nothing extraordinary to be aware of when arriving.

Cross Keys at HP sounds good. Plenty of beer garden seating for a warm summer's evening  :facepalm:
