    Gorgeous weather and lovely countryside! Thanks for joining me. Although we cut it a bit short, I reckon we did just under 40 miles, so a good day's cycling!

    Hi Dave, good morning. Hope you're well. I have a stiff back and can't convince myself riding today will be a good idea. Sorry to let the group down. Wishing everyone a great ride. Vin
