No orcs, hobbits or dragons, just great company, banter and a nice pub lunch to boot. Looking forward to meeting up again sometime.

Congratulations go to Ken for his first time over 100 miles and done in a not too shabby 7hr 45mins. Especially as his legs 'went' with about 40 to go :lol: Plus he has finally shaken off his reputation for shoddy navigation with a well planned and brilliantly memorised route, i hadn't a clue where we were :facepalm:

I clocked 105 miles, 50 there and a little more on the way back due to a few stray turns. The weather was very kind for the Atherstone group, only a little rain in the first hour and glorious sunshine on the way home.

Check out the photos of Ken's retro cycle socks...

Shock horror...hipsters spotted in sleepy Balsall Heath (see photo). Shop bought 'fixie' and skinny jeans and he only looked about 12 :shock: Bloody 'fixie' riders :lol:

See you all soon....

Great ride in fantastic company !!!

I clocked up 53 but forgot to turn it on for a bit so maybe it was a bit more good climbing and speed today ...suffered but enjoyed

Having lived in the Cotswolds since 1988 unbelievable really it was my first visit to the brewery and deff go back to have a proper mooch round. The pub lunch meet with Karl and ken was spot on and well timed. Fantastic effort from both and very enjoyable to spend lunch talking usual rubbish !!

The basis for more adventures I think ?

Top ride chaps, though I was suffering a little today with very tired legs after almost two weeks of non stop riding, needless to say I've learnt my lesson and am doing a longer ride tomorrow !! One of the highlights for me today was seeing three elephants :lol: again big respect to the 100 milers and its official, Daj IS a salad dodger.
