I really miss Dorset, used to ride down there with the guys from X-Treme, cake at corfe, then the climb up past stone seat back to the ridge... Id love to ride it again... are there still group rides that gather on a sunday at the ferry??

No ride on Friday and Monday as we were away down west for Project GTFOOL.

Back on it today, chilly 7 with a little breeze, clear skies. I'm STILL waiting to pick up with Esatto which is frustrating since now is the season for it. Anyway, here's St Georges Garrison church just outside Woolwich.

Have to ask, what is project GTFOOL al? :?

Also been a few days without much time, mostly due to the school holidays and glorious stormy weather.

Today i had the morning free so as it was sunny i went out for a quick ride. It was warm in the sun, the breeze was cool but once going i soon got too warm and had to take the coat off. The trails were packed, more than i have ever seen them, must be the lull in the miserable weather of late. Most were jolly, but a few were rather grumpy, though hopefully the sun and fresh air will help them get through the rest of the day 8)

A great ride, on a nice crisp autumn day.

Damp start with a light drizzle starting around 07:30. Not too chilly 9 but cooler on the hills, especially on the descents.

Murky look back to Chelsfield and Orpington:

Good luck with project GTFOOL... it’s a life changer, believe me.

One of my most cherished memories is that of Friday the 27th June 2008.... standing in a packed commuter train travelling out of London on the “muggers line” (Liverpool st to Enfield) with a big stupid grin on my face knowing I would be driving a hire van the next day to Yorkshire. :D
