With Matt busy slaving over the new logo… or as we call it, throwing another sicky, the inclement weather had cut our numbers in a true show of sorting the moles out from the boys.
The Stig, AndyC (that’s the original AndyC) and myself gathered at the usual place and pondered our moral high ground and increasing damp clothing. I made the decision to do the East Horsley loop so we trudged up to Ranmore and enjoyed the long run down into East Horsely, then to Effingham and I peeled off home.
The Stig sent me a few stats today that we can ponder over. I recorded an average speed of 9.9mph and The Stig recorded a total event time of 2 hr 42 mins with time in motion of 2 hr 15mins. He reckons it’s normally closer to 60% motion so we really upset the averages!
What more can I say, it was wet, I couldn’t see a thing with my glasses on and I really need to put the SKS blade on the Spider or do the inner tube thing to the top of the forks. The nettles were also stinging having been bent over to allow us to brush virgin growth as we sped past.
All in all a really enjoyable ride!
