Fluffer, I took a lot on in my youth.

You really do know him well.  That seems like too much information though.

Were you involved in the sequels or just the original ?

My understanding was that Fluff was around for the original specialist movie "Andy does Kelvedon" but by the time the sequel "Andy does Ingatestone" came out Fluff was a healthcare professional.

I had my hands full I can tell you, it had me on my knees that job.

Maybe he could make a come back in an Audax themed porno?  :-*

Carlos does Colchester ?

I think its high time that me and Oaky's (or maybe it was just me?) idea of a sex shop audax is taken seriously.  The route incorporates sex shops and riders have to make a purchase in each to get a receipt as proof of passage.  I'm sure Tomsk will volunteer to organise it!

I think there could be an ACME award for the most unusual receipt as proof of passage on an Audax.

We did that for one of Grant's events.  I bought a bunch of flowers from the petrol station at Latchington and carried them for the rest of the ride but if I remember I was robbed of the prize by AndyC33333333333333333 who bought a dishwashing brush or somesuch.

When I organised someone handed me a receipt for 20 JPS Black.

(I think they had picked it out the bin at the petrol station - who said audaxers were tight)

A receipt for 20 litres of petrol on a 400 might be suspicious.  It was for a fire to keep me warm whilst I slept. Honest...

So what are the rules at the moment re meeting up and riding to the venue?

Errr, I think we should ride in groups of 6 or less.  Mind you I'm not sure I am 100% correct but it sounds sensible.
The rules are for exercise once per day and staying "local".
Current limit is up to 6 individuals or unlimited number from no more than two households. Same rule as for outdoor gatherings.
There is a limit of 15 individuals for organised sport or activitiies - that implies that there is a formal organiser who takes some level of responsibility, I wouldn't expect anyone to take on that level of "cat herding" without the formal protection of a proper organised ride.

Is it a direct run from Spa or will it be the classic route via TMNH ?

It won't be the classic incorporating TMNH.
Think there will be at least 2 doing the direct route as we probably have an addition to the MEMWNS Witham Chapter Peloton this evening

Sounds like my kind of group.

I will be the guy with a carnation in his top pocket, waiting on the corner of Terling Road.

Wednesday 28th April
Totham Swan - 8pm

Table 1

1. Dirk
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

If that fills, the next person just needs to call them and book a further table.

I suppose it is possible we could have the wild westerners forming a splinter group.
