Its back again. The social event of the year and now in its 5th year( i think)  come along and meet other long distance cyclists and drink a ale or two.
Chance to get some early season miles in
Sort your own digs and meet in the kingshead from 6.30pm on wards.

See you all there.

It's just good old fizzy keg beer, but more expensive.

The weather forecast is looking dire, with Storm Dennis bringing gusty winds and heavy rain on Saturday, so I've decided that 'discretion is the better part of valour' and cycling to Salisbury for me would be unwise.... The alternative train option is expensive and subject to bus replacement sections. Sorry to miss the reunion  :( and hopefully see some of you guys on the road soon.

Sorry to disappoint y'all but I too am out, there's little attraction in riding 200k against Dennis and associated 80mph rain-laden headwinds... no need to quote rule 5 at me, I'm concluding that it need not apply so firmly at my time of life.

For penance I will do a 200 DIY tomorrow, a Gently Bentley route check, and try to finish before Dennis arrives

I wish all hardcore veterans who are still intending to ride a safe and pleasant journey :thumbsup:

I'll be riding up. Easy to say when your planned route is only 50k of mostly gravel sneaking up through the New Forest trails from the south. Sunday might be better. It's only a forecast

I've just seen them off the premises.  Storms and pubs permitting, they should be in or near Salisbury this evening.

My apologies, but the Exeter Wheelers' do is the same day.

Storm Dennis meant a select group of eight sodden randonneurs in Salisbury...

Definitely a glove squeezing kind of weekend. Great to catch up after a year out of the big stuff. Time to get fit again.

60 dry miles on Saturday followed by 25miles of heavy rain and wind.
50 very wet miles today and some very deep  floods! !!!

Hopefully those catching trains got home ok.
