This one tomorrow - a bit ambitious?

I'm enjoying the Brighton cycling rides from the velo cafe outside our new apartment.

Tomorrows is a bit keener than the ones I've done before - stated as level 4 out of 5 - not long, but pacey

Hey, might as well try!

Heck, I'd do it, but I don't have an ounce of common sense to my name.

How's about a report on the ride Wog, isn't that near Stapfam's riding area, I believe he is a bit northwest of there, though.

No, I'm afraid it was a wash-out. Rainstormy morning, windy and pouring down. Only 3 turned up at the start point, and it wasn't even a decision to quit, it was obvious.

Next time!
