Kind words indeed Mr Richards! :cry:
B run will be about 62 miles and 4500ft climbing, weather will hopefully be better than it has been and it's 6 items of brekkie for £3.50! What more could you want?

The roads turned out to be pretty good with only a couple of ice patches, was nice to have a club run that wasn't wet for the 1St time this year! Welcome to dorian on his 1St beacon outing and hope to see you again soon. A nice quiet B run today for some reason and can't quite put my finger on why.....

The B run to Tewkesbury is approximately 75 miles and as flat as flattish can be, cafe is coffee #1 so bring locks if you have them. I've also made enquiries and Mr Johnson has kindly given permission for anyone to give him a big hug as long as they buy him one of the bostin 'tarte au citron' cakes!...
