Sorry it's a bit late but been very very busy .
http://ridewithgps.com/routes/5448679

Now I know it's a bit lumpy but I am hoping that the ride will split up with you kids zooming of on your own leaving us Fat lads at the back to just settle down and enjoy ourselves .
So that being said there is NO excuses for not coming OR for putting the route on your Garmins so when you shoot of you will not get lost.
As they said in the 60's "be there or be square" No I dont know what it means either .

The expression "Be there or be square" is sort of a half-joking ultimatum that works because it rhymes. It probably originated in the U.S. during the '40s or '50s and was made popular by the whole James Dean "Rebel Without a Cause" vibe, which preached that being square was about as uncool as you could get.

"There is the risk of severe weather during Sunday as a depression tracks over, or close to, the UK. At this stage there is more than average uncertainty in the forecast, but the public should be aware of the risk of heavy rain, strong winds and large waves, sufficient to disrupt transport and make outdoor activities dangerous.

This is a particularly volatile situation, and this warning is likely to be changed as the event approaches."

Sounds like fun :-)

And this must be why I was unceremoniously "dumped" from Ride London this Sunday. Weather forecast for next year is splendid, I hear....

I'm not sure whether they're talking about tomorrow's weather outlook or the consequences of too many protein recovery drinks.............
