I concur with the above, surprisingly weary at the end but I think the brutal headwind after we stopped for lunch just outside Winchcombe was to blame (or at least I'm clinging to that conceit as the alternative is that I've been too lazy over the winter).

Conditions were generally good, pretty dry apart from a couple of places that were slightly greasy. Fields were pretty bumpy though.

Looking forward to it's a really good day out.

Steady away for me, no rush just get around the 100km course and enjoy.

Lamentable lack of practice not to mention advancing years mean that I shall be pleased to crawl around the short course as usual!

the OH tells me that the forecast is good for next weekend - we shall hope to stop on the school site overnight in the camper as last year.

Last minute practice today - out at 7.30 a.m. in the woods at Dancing Green near my home. Squirrels and even a deer out enjoying the sunshine but not a single person.

Hoping to do the same tomorrow before I hit the motorway for work, It was the best hour of the day today!

Are we all ready then? We are taking the camper over tonight and hoping to park on the school grounds. The caretaker let us in last year which was good. See you all tomorrow folks!
