I was one of the first bottles to fall at the first shortcut, along with Steve, who looked longingly at all of you as you left - felt a bit guilty about that I have to admit, but it was a good call for me. This was my first proper ride since May and I was definitely holding up the rest of the crew b...

"The Pond" was perfect! :D :D :D Also plenty of wind, great fun, rigged a 6.5, but would have been ok on something a little smaller (6.5 was a handful at times). The sailing club's anemometer had a steady force 4, gusting to 5. The rain did not hold off much at all, but with dry changing rooms and w...

The plan is to allow Steve and me a decent lie in to recover from our sail at Llangdegfedd :D :D (and to give the wetsuits a chance to dry a little, though if this weather continues we may be riding in them :roll: ). So 1100 for an 1130 start. We will be using the entrance closest to the Angel in Lo...

Waves are not my forte and waves as my first sail of the season ..... :roll: :roll: Sunshine and wind ...... perfect for blowing off the cobwebs :D. Nicely powered up on ...

You had to replace a banana guard!? What happened to the first one?? And what is the dog bone for?? Visions of you carrying one in case of attack from a ferocious hound - bit worrying that you have only replaced it once though - must pong a bit by now :shock: My trusty steed also approaches a birthd...

Ouch! That sounds really bad, not a good place to get an injury for windsurfing either. Several weeks :shock: , I hope recovery is swifter than that.

I promised we would be back at dusk and it certainly was :P Perhaps it was just as well I didn't make it - it would certainly have been duskier! Either that or you would have been saved that last climb :???: Perhaps I should offer my services as a ride shortener for an appropriate fee 8) Thanks to ...

Two great rides - though some of Wentwood was hard work due to all kinds of thorned plants conspiring against us :evil: only one puncture to report though (unlike Spain in similar circumstances!), which appeared while we were in the pub, so fairly civilised as punctures go :roll: . I also managed an...

Steve and I are also considering both, especially as we missed a couple of our favourite Rowberrow sections last weekend (Rowberrow in the dry :D :D :D) In the absence of a time for Wentwood tomorrow can I suggest 10:30 for 11:00? Always assuming I can get Steve out of bed ..... you know what he's l...

Bother!

The Fugawi file is attached, which shows less climbing than on previous visits to the Quantocks: just 13.8 miles and just two big hills. Can't see it ....... did I miss it or you? Would be nice to see where we didn't go. Though the day improved dramatically after we finally got off the motorway. Sh...
