I am looking keenly at the weather to see if I shall come and find you - it is about 160 mile round trip so would like to see a few people at the other end to make it worthwhile coming along from Newbury. :-)

weather cold in the mist but once the sun breaks the yard arm.

I'm guessing tomorrows kit will be full winter,sweating like a national winner by the time we make Epping

I have no doubt the crotch rocket monkeys will be out in force

Change of plan. I'll try and meet up with the group coming from Colchester way between Dunmow and Ongar. Watch out for a black & white Xmax. I would flash my main beam at you when I see you, but you probably won't notice it :(

Physically, although I'd class myself as unfit, I'm sure I could do it.

Medically, I managed about 30 miles before discomfort called a halt.

My conclusion is that I'm on the mend and improving but I ain't ready for that ride yet.
Great shame but no sense in pushing yourself too hard.

As Richie says a more southerly gathering when both you and the weather are fully fit would be grand.
And a meet-up at the ace café going to try this year. :kiss:

Yes, but 10.30 to leave. I'll get there for 10.15.
Ah! Good to know, so in that case, i'll be there at 10 or so to allow for a coffee and chat before we leave.

:lol: I couldn't have put it any better. Typical time of year, too cold for thin layers, too hot for winters. Kind of a limbo weather. I'll probably kit off at break points but don't expect kinky underwear :roll:

OK - I am up for it and looking forward to meeting you all at about mid-day. Keep the shiny side up - see you there.

I too will be struggling to know what to wear - I shall probably shed layers on the way.
