Chaps, really sorry but I am going to have to duck out of this one. My hamstring is a lot better but still not right and I don't want to make my first/test ride a long one (more like a gentile 20 miler on Sunday).

Have a good one, the weather looks to be much improved although the roads will be a tad damp!

Real shame you can't make it as although raining here at the moment the forecast doesn't look too bad at all http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2647074

Will there be gentlemanly breaks mid ride? Went for a solid test ride today and felt rather 'off form' :lol:

Have a good one everyone. I really wish I was going. At the very least Ed said he could fit my new bar tape for me. The old tatty stuff patched with gaffer tape will have to stay on there until I can get to the lbs.

Bugger, just in from someone's work leaving do. It did involve a 2:30pm start and a bit of biking.
It also involved viking outfits and beer.

Bedtime now, early start and a hangover tomorrow.

Meh!

Just opened a PM from drystonepaul sent at 6.22 a.m. Obviously it would be wrong to quote the message here but the following sums it up.

That pretty much sums it up Ed.

I've just managed to crawl out of my pit now after a couple of early morning sessions of shouting at the toilet.
I've let myself down, I've let the other riders down.
I've let the whole of Retrobike down.

I'm sure that last nights pictures will be all over Facebook soon.

Really gutted to have spoiled what should have been a great day's riding for myself.

Meh!
