Can't make it on Sunday after all, shame because I was getting all psyched up for it! Have fun, post lots of pics.

Lots of love,
Sam.

The good news: The forecast for tomorrow is really nice.

The other news: It's bloody muddy up there in places!
Typically of Woodbury some bits are almost dusty, whereas other places are really claggy.
I'd recommend waterproof socks and at least a crud guard/front mudguard.
And don't ride a bike you mind getting properly dirty :wink: though of course getting muddy is the whole point (well one of them) of riding in winter, or else we wouldn't bother. Or move to Australia.

I'm so happy to hear that - I spent an hour this morning to clean my bike after yesterday's 95km ride around Haldon (and back to Paignton)... :-D

Sorry, I'll be riding modern - the only bike I've got at the moment. But I have a retro mustache to compensate that! :-P

See you all tomorrow!

Good ride chaps :D Lovely weather and not quite as muddy as feared - though pretty claggy in parts!

Here's a link to the ride on Strava:

Bloody hell, by looking at the group photo I feel extremely embarrassed with my 'tash... :-D

Have you cleaned your bikes yet?

Yep, great ride thanks, do it again in dusty conditions some time! Bit of a Kona theme this time.
Cleaned the bike - no letting that lot dry & brushing it off tomorrow.
