    Actually... the diary has spoken. We are off to Romney Marsh early Saturday to do some wardening at Dugeness RSPB witg friends. @Hill Wimp reminded me I hadn’t put it in my diary.

    See you all for Whitstable.... hopefully the legs will be there.

    If its a wet ride, count me out. The current forecast is rain all the way upto Thursday just before the ride. Things can still change though.

    Far too early to be accurate.

    I'll be away for this one, which is a shame as my parents live near Southend so I have been able to call in for a second breakfast on the way home. However, as they are going to be away with me, there wouldn't be much point! I'll think about you all at midnight, as I am tucked up in bed.

    In.

    'Ummed' and 'aahed' as to whether to sign up as I've got so much on, but have put that to one side and am really looking forward to it. T'was a great ride last year, so hoping for more of the same!

    A bump…email says 52 are signed up so far, exactly 50% newcomers. Which is nice.

    Have started charging the batteries…spare sets done today. Just three sets of four AAs & four AAAs…

    Sitting here eating my breakfast at the Waterfront in Whitstable and I can see Southend. They’re ready for us :-)

    The early weather forecast suggests it might be mildly damp, with temperatures above freezing. No frozen water bottles this year!

    I'm about to ride over there. Never been to the waterfront but ridden past a few times.

    Would have been good to meet up Ross, I'm in the waterfront now having a coffee. Gonna head east along the coast to Margate then to Sandwich. You must be on for the ton today.
     
  14. It's a lovely day to be out today. I hate you both.
