    Quiet and very civilised few pints were had, enjoyed that. It was so warm we stayed outside.

    Indeed. Though I was just starting to feel the chill as I left, what with just wearing shorts. Soon warmed back up though.
  • Very civilised, passed a guy having a puncture in almost the same place on way back! Lent him my levers, 20psi in the rear did make for some intresting handling, bike is much better with 40psi!

    It was only Roger, Ben and myself so very quiet. No idea if a roaring Vimfuego turned up later, I suspect not if he was on PT. We should do it again when it's warmer and lighter.

    Nah, by the time a couple of us had escaped the official office do, I was "persuaded" to partake in a couple in the Bavarian Beerhouse by Fenchurch St. Fine time had by all concerned , but meant I was never going to make it down to Richmond at a reasonable hour. Sorry I missed it, but hopefully there'll be a follow up at some point.

    Summer? Drinks?
    A couple of us are going to be rehydrating in the Roebuck on Thursday if anybody fancies a pint. Probably from a little after 6.

    We're all coming cause it's your shout at the bar and I'll have a bag of pork scratchings too, please.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
