    I realised at tea time that no amount of faff-age (rhymes with barrage) would overcome the utter and complete level of undercooked that I will present on the morrow.

    So naturally I got rat faced rather than sort myself out.

    I didn't realise it was so dangerous hereabouts. In the event that I'm not there at the appointed time, I've probably succumbed to the serious crime epidemic.

    Made it onto the right portion of the right train.

    I think.

    Anybody been blown over the channel yet?

    I cheated and bailed at Cooden Beach, where there is, indeed, a shop selling beer, got a beer, got a train to Hastings and just caught the 18:24 to Gatwick so I can do the journey home with just one change and be home by half-eight. Everyone on Hastings Station appeared to be wrecked or working on getting there.

    The ride? Windy, haily, rainy, sunny and there were a couple of hills. Great run.

    I concur. A great day to be on a bike. It would have taken more than a few hills and a burst of hail to dampen our spirits. It’s a beautiful part of the country. I made my train out of Hastings with seconds to spare, despite getting lost in the town centre.

    We should do another one.

    Now on a train back to the smoke. It will take forever :sad:

    Crap trains aside ... a great day out on the bike. A little bit of everything. Sunshine, rain, hail, lumpy bits, flat bits ...

    Played golf at Cooden Beach a few times, not a bad course. I have a friend who uses my address to get a cheaper membership for being a way away.

    I rode home from Sevenoaks which have me a ton for the day. And a soaking from a short, sharp, cold shower. Which is annoying having dodged the rain all day. Indoors at 8.30, beer in hand. Lovely.

    Eventuality yes. Cunning plan to change at Sevenoaks scuppered by delays.

    Did you have jolly beer?
