Fair play to the lads who drove great distances to get there and then rode - a 50 minute drive was more than enough for me. Oh, and chapeau to Matt with his three punctures, each time catching up and then riding smoothly, apparently effortlessly away.

No credit for the last descent though - "I know, let's put a super bumpy descent in at the end of a long day and spice it up by having the bottom half with freely running, foul smelling water. That should keep them honest".

Belting day, good weather, a wee bit windy in places. Started with a terrible belly probably due to consuming a hot curry at Shezan's in Cheltenham followed by 6 pints of ale at some characterful (seedy?) pub the night before, had to stop 3 times to ease the pain in the guts (thank God Murph brought some toilet paper along). A chain link parted company and left me with jammed chain, the last descent was great but I had to take some interesting lines overtaking a couple of people which left me with a snakebite puncture at the bottom. :( Got back at 15:16 for the 100K which I was pretty happy about considering I've only been out once over the past 3 weeks.

Thanks to the folk at the food stop, it was most welcome (bread pudding just like my Mum used to make mmm, 2 slices and 2 cups of hot coffee, banana and flapjack - and another visit to the loo).

:D

Excuse the wind and use of bad language about halfway through, but it is worth waiting for.....
