Congratulations Rob

2014  :thumbsup:
2015  :thumbsup:
2016  :thumbsup:
2017  :thumbsup:

RRTY number 4 completed. Funnily enough my comment from last year about being sick of the cold and wet rings true again. It does however seem that I had an overlap somewhere along the way and I had actually finished this one in November. Will have to figure out exactly what the means :-D

March 2018 - DIY
April 2018 - DIY
May 2018 - Grand Tour de Stour
June 2018 - Asparagus and Strawberries
July 2018 - Hereward the Wake
August 2018 - DIY
September 2018 - DIY
October 2018  :hand: Not Completed

So after 55 completed months I missed out in October due to a mix of a viral infection and a flare up of gout. A bit gutted but then I am looking forward to just riding the 100km of the ACME winter series rides and not looking for a way to squeeze in 200km a month. Might kick off again next year but we'll see, if I do I might aim to start my year in November instead of Feb to avoid getting so close before the bleak months.
Enjoying a quiet year

 I'm tempted by 300RTY. Got a calendar 100+200 ECE lined up for beginning of December, so I'll already be 4months in. We'll see..... the wheels almost fell off last March, so I won't hold too many hopes just yet.

Well, the ECE was a massive abort, so this months first effort was a bit of danger audax. Forgot my wallet, so half a loaf of jam sandwiches my and  new camelback were severely rationed! No overpriced refreshments at the services for this call sign. Thankfully a kind tailwind blew me most of the way back.  Might give Sunbury-Oxford-Sunbury 300 a stab next week. Dunno yet.

Pending validations etc etc.....
