I'll lead a ride to Toddington, stopping at the railway cafe at 44 miles. Distance is 82 Miles return, out via Droitwich and return via Charlton and Bishampton, pace will be 14-15 mph.

Weather looks like it will be quite wet before 8:00 but settling down to be damp until mid afternoon. Hopefully not torrential but warm showers!

Si Turner
Alan Weaver
Andy McGrath
Jon Sadler
Eugene Farrell

Due to the weather a couple of riders declined, Riders participating were as follows:

Si Walker (Leading)
Alan Weaver
Jon Sadler
Eugene Farrell
George Barker (at the 'cafe')

Despite the railway cafe supposedly being open it was closed, so we went to The Pheasant pub.

Si, I was supposed to be going on holiday this weekend... but suddenly I'm not. So I may pitch up at the café. Don't count me in the six though, because I won't be riding with the group (unless you catch me on the road -- my route will be the same as yours for the last few kilometres). If there are six on the ride, I'll sit on a separate table so that we stay within the rules. My current plans are based on the assumption that it'll probably be wet on and off but not hosing down. However, if it turns out to be like Wednesday's TT, I won't be leaving the house (or I'll be turning for home)!

I’m up for that ride Si. If it’s peeing down before leaving home I might not come.
