    good Beckford 63 mi 04:50 13.0mph pace

    Lovely almost Spring day. Just a strong breeze which was a tad chilly to begin with. Jules H was at the meet as I rolled up. We took to the longer way around by Hillend to cross Longdon Marsh. ... read more

    good Castlemorton Woolridge and As... 47 mi 03:26 13.7mph pace

    Lovely bright morning out there so off I went. Fairly standard run today which I haven't ridden for a wee while. I had the light drift of wind behind on the way south which helped keep thing... read more

    good Deerhurst 44 mi 03:19 13.3mph pace

    good Trumpet 52 mi 04:14 12.3mph pace

    Jules H, Mrs 26 and lil ole me headed off around the northern end of the Hills. Bright skies, little wind and mild temps meant good stuff for February. We looped around to the western side to dro... read more

    good White Rabbit 35 mi 02:34 13.6mph pace

    Temps have risen. One less layer required. Bright day too so I headed out on the standard route by Castlemorton, Longdon Marsh, Bushley, Twyning and The White Rabbit for Upton and return. Bit of... read more

    good Saturday Crew, The Mythe 36 mi 02:47 12.9mph pace

    I was on my own to the meet in Upton today. As expected John G and Pete M turned up but Steve E had cancelled his trip North so turned out too. Most wanted a short one so we took the shortest pos... read more

    good White Rabbit 34 mi 02:26 14.0mph pace

    It snowed. But the roads were clear. Freezing wind straight from the Pole. Not strong enough tho' as no Polar Bears have been displaced. I started out with the gritted road route but decid... read more

    good Staunton and Corse 30 mi 02:06 14.3mph pace

    Snow on the Hills and those wet roads would be icy. So I layered up and stayed on a gritted route. These days I like to keep safe. South to Staunton to cross to Corse Lawn and north for Upton. ... read more

    good Up Town 2.61 mi 00:40 15:19 pace

    Walk to lunch for a change. 4 of us today

    good Mayfly 40 mi 03:12 12.5mph pace

    I joined Margaret PR, Rich B and Steve E at Newland. After a bit of checking we agreed that The Mayfly would be OK. So it was a fairly standard route today by Alfrick, Martley, Ockeridge and Wich... read more

    good Trioscape 49 mi 03:46 13.0mph pace

    The wind was strong but Pete M and I made into the shelter of the lanes. We climbed to Redmarley to take the Durbridge dodge for a change. Just the Pauntley climb before we could top out at Brand... read more

    good Lunch and Tea 33 mi 02:41 12.3mph pace

    Mrs 26 was up for a ride over to The Drum and Monkey. Not far but lunch was the idea. Nice lunch it was too. She then had a brainwave to visit some friends. That meant a bit of a ride ahead. S... read more

    good Staunton and Corse 30 mi 02:03 14.6mph pace

    Ice about and the temperature took time to get slightly warmer. The sunshine was tempting so I layered up and took to gritted roads south for Staunton with the northerly run starting through Corse... read more

    4 Old Farts for lunch. Wet road coming home tho' :-(

    good Pershore 44 mi 03:21 13.1mph pace

    Cold and damp but 4 of us turned out. Steve E, Pete M, John G and me. Pershore seemed like a good idea so it was out over the River by Strensham and Defford to cross the Avon at Eckington. Then ... read more

    good Tewkesbury 35 mi 02:36 13.5mph pace

    Hazel R. 's recent post about weather and getting out there inspired me to ignore the rain radar (looking very wet) and the temperature (it froze in the night). I took to the standard run out... read more

      The hardest step is the one out the door, and I'm betting that you soon warmed up and were glad that you made the effort, and had a wonderful ride. A bonus to stay dry - sounds like you were lucky with that one.

    John B and Pete M joined me for this fairly standard run out by Hillend and the Castlemorton lanes over Longdon Marsh and Bushley for the cafe at The Mythe. We'd been dodging raindrops and tr... read more

    good Up Town 2.61 mi

    That horrid bug is bu**ering off. I risked a wee climb up town on the MtB. Only 3 of us Old Farts for lunch tho'. Nice to get some small amount of fresh air.
