Possibly, I'd love to enjoy the petrol station, 3am fashion show again :facepalm:

Arm warmers, leg warmers, knee warmers, either fleecy or not. Thick gloves, thin gloves, gilets, jackets, shoe covers etc,. On, off or thrown on the floor ::-)

I may have been hallucinating, but I thought you and AndyC33333 had morphed into Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.

Have you got a route that's more than 398km, but less than 450km?

Indeed, being old, fat and unfit it's good that I've had a chance to participate :thumbsup:

I'll try and improve my fitness over the Winter so longer rides are a possibility. (Even the bloody Viper).

Will you be commuting then?!  ;D ;D ;

So... is tonight's destination The Cats?  I may be able to put in a rare appearance, along with an even rarer appearance of the lesser-spotted Acorn#1, although we'll be making our way there by a fairly direct route and not staying for too long (school in the morning!).
You are in a maze of twisty flat droves, all alike.

Yes, it is definitely the Cats.

I have a partners' meeting in Benfleet which I am now told involves curry and beers afterwards but I still hope to make it to the Cats for 9 - it is rather conveniently almost exactly half way home.

You do know you can ECE the minimum distance up to the 4 points don't you ;)

I might make it out to the Cats tonight after all...

Don't give that information away.  It's far more fun watching his little disappointed face in the Postern Gate.

I will be looking for the Catapults to come up with a GMBW route of 400k with 400.1k of actual riding.

I'm not interested in the points, I wasn't going to renew my AUK membership, looks like I'll have to now :(

I'd just like a sensible Arrow route after riding the one with 5000M of climbing, the one that was 450km and the 398km one.

You know there won't be a centimetre more distance or metre more height than necessary with the Catapults.

Left leg ballooning again (this time a reaction due to a beastly wasp sting). Hopefully it’ll be ok by Wednesday.

OK - was going to Suggest King Billy but as there isn't much Westerly contingent then might suggest Hurdlemakers?

Forward planning seems to be lacking at the moment but just registering Sun Inn Feering next Wed (25 Sept) as it's their beer festival which is usually a good gig...

Can I suggest also perhaps Stebbing for the following week to give Elliot a chance of attending ?? :)
