Going to purchase the BikeForce Oxenford jersey for this one as when I signed up it was with that groups team.

Always good to ride as a group! I also need a white jersey... as the other ones I have a black and they are getting to warm now.

The long-range forecast is looking good with a northerly wind. Hamster loves tailwinds :D

I'm ok with either option LOL. I'll just have to make sure I draft far enough back that the drool misses me!

Great news guys, the forecast is now for a south-easterly at 19 kph so basically a headwind. While these extended-range forecasts are pretty flakey the good thing is that it's looking like it will be nice and dry.

Hamster has Pierre in at the LBS getting a check-over, so it you see a fat, bald, old, red-faced and grumpy dude on a black Peugeot that'll be me.

I'm not that fussed about a headwind... just as long as it hangs around for the return leg! :shock:
