While Raya is posing amongst the palm trees of Cuzumel, the weather here is slipping inexorably towards winter mode. Sunday is currently looking cold, clear and dry; perfect weather for a steady-paced jaunt to Windsor to sample the iced buns (don't have those in Cozumel, eh Raya?) I need to be back earlyish, so plan to leave the lido at 8:30am sharp and be back around 2:30pm. Meet there at 8:15am if you want to join. Ride is circa 120k, pace will average 25-27kph.
Hi Gesine and Ellie,
are you defecting to Hector's killer 180k? I might pitch in with another group ride if no-one wants to go to Windsor.
According to the forecast Sunday morning will be frosty/icy. Bear in mind Windsor route likely to be ice free, rural lanes in Kent and Surrey less so.
I'll join you for the start but will turn around at 40km I reckon.
OK Jake, will be nice to ride with you and catch up
Nice one Charles see you sunday
Hi Charles, I'm in for the rider tomorrow!
OK Ellie, Gesine, Jake and Richard, see you at the lido 8:30am tomorrow.
Perfect winter ride to Windsor yesterday with Gesine and Jake under a blue sky; cold and sunny but no ice. The NW wind made for a tough head wind out to Windsor so we earned our cinammon buns. Return journey super-speedy with the wind at our backs.
Remember the old cycling adage folks: winter miles = summer smiles
