Awesome. See you there.

The clicking I had today was due to my rear wheel not seated in the drop out ! Doh !

Its close to being the route.You know what I'm like we will most likely get lost and end up in Monmouth or Swansea.But hey who cares.

Mumbles - may be pushing it a bit for the second ride out. Route as planned looks good, so will see you at Tesco.

Flipping heck. That was a ride. I took an odd route back once I got over the bridge. Also that climb back to the Chepstow round about was a leg sapper.

Great ride, best this year.

See you in three weeks.

There was more creaking and rumbling and clicking today than all out other rides put together.Two punctures for me!.Thanks for tube Phil.Just checked the tubes two little holes.Don't seem to be related not pinches.Double checked the tyre and it has a lot of very tiny holes in so that's one for the scrap bin.
You can see who the fit ones are on a ride like that,and it's not me.
I will let you know when I am NOT out next so you lot can ride it with a vengeance..
Actually Phil and I are Audaxing on the 27th of this month so there is a golden opportunity for you with out me slowing you down.
Where does anyone fancy next week?Moors up towards Berkeley or out towards Castle Coombe.
Put your ideas forward asap.Please.
How about some of you newer members having a go at plotting a route you must all have your little favourite rides .Share them.
Scott

Be interested to hear maximum speeds from yesterday. Map my ride is saying 20 ! Steve what did you get ? I was right behind you when I nearly hit the hedge so would be similar.

Hi Neil, my garmin recorded 40.4 miles an hour, i think you were gaining on me so you were probably going a bit faster.

It was felt quick. I wouldn't mind riding that in reverse.

Sundays route was lovely. Anyone fancy a ride in the Black Mountains when the weather is warmer? I've never ridden my road bike over there and the roads look amazing.
