No News is Good News...

Right?  Wrong.
Not that nothings going on and you've got to give the new people a chance but now Gary's cut his VC teeth, I'm back and rambling same as always.
So as you may or not be aware, this weekend is the 2nd National 24hr solo championships and our folks are there. So I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing Grant a good ride and also Steve who's taking the sissy 12 hour option.  There is a wager going on as to how many laps he'll get.
If Amy is riding too then good luck to you too. Obviously she'll be going for the win in the women's event, so go on Trio.

With more mundane news, Andrew, the old relic and myself paid a visit to a new (to me) cafe last week.  Scarlets, dodgy name, I know, but it get better.  Not only is it extremely bike friendly as the owners are cyclists or runners or something, but they have exceedingly good cakes and coffee.  The best thing though is they also have a very well stocked selection of beer.  Le Chouffe, Kwak, Westmalle, Orval and quite a few German and Czech ones.  Not only can you take away, you can drink on the premises.  There's also a very nice courtyard outside which on a sunny day is the perfect place to enjoy  a bottle of pinot grigio.

There's every possibility that the 12 hr option is the sensible one......
