Anyone fancy a ride this Sunday? Looks like the worst of the rain will have passed and we could battle against the wind to have some soup in Rhys’s cafe before being blown merrily homeward by the remnants of the hurricane.
Please post here if you fancy it.

Back in the Saddle – A ride to Feel Good Inc. – concept by Sweaty and execution by Mrs ValleyMan.
Imagine the disappointment having struggled up Narberth Hill to find that Sweaty was ‘indisposed’, however, this was soon forgotten by the excellent turnout (not that I would know what a good turnout looks like) of vaguely familiar faces with numbers boosted by Mr and Mrs [redacted].
As night follows day Mat had a go at changing the route but a resolute Mrs ValleyMan backed up by the peloton was not for turning (towards Tavernspite) and a more or less straight run (including a section of footpath) took us to the Feel Good Inc. Café. Even the Chairman seemed to enjoy his coffee once a slightly startled Rhys had sprung into action.
Oh s**t its the Aces exclaimed Mrs [redected] as her and Mr [redacted] quickly disappeared behind copy of the Western Telegraph. But it was to no avail as they has been spotted. After a bit of friendly banter we were off again on the return leg via Tenby (Matt decided that we were all a bunch of wooseys and struck off west on his own) meeting wave after wave (after wave – yes there were lots of them) of the Milford Haven Club.
It was at this point the lack of miles in my legs (zero) started to show crawling slowly up every slight (and not so slight incline) but eventually got home having covered a respectable 39 miles at an average of 13.1 miles per hour.
Thanks to Roger, Graham, Leighton, Pete, Jonathon and Legal Eagle plus those name checked above for their company on my ‘comeback’ ride.October 20, 2014 at 5:22 pm #27696
Wow a ride & blog well done Ian.
This year I will be in running for worst dressed. & most anti social.
Stop was good so was seeing wave after wave of sea in fresh west fantastic.
Just for the record. I did not change the route as I posted it the night before. Strangely routes just posted in one person’s head do not count as an official route. But does prove there is no point in having a route. Just say where you want to end up .October 20, 2014 at 5:22 pm #27697RogerMember
