9am start sounds good to me.  I'll aim to get there for 8.15 so I can faff.  Looking forward to this.

Plea for help!  I went to Halfords for some inner tubes after using my last one yesterday and they were shut.  Tesco didn't have any.  I'm hoping there's a stall at the HQ in the morning but if anyone has a spare they could lend/sell me in case of emergency I'd be mighty grateful.  Ta.

If this weather keeps up for tomorrow it will be a good one.

Soupy, I'm pretty sure I've got a spare spare floating around somewhere - assuming you've got a fairly standard sized wheel.  

Happychap - I'm sure we will. You too; easy does it and watch out for irate caravanners

Sorry kids, going to give this a miss, just too tired and want a lie in! Will be out and about on the bike later in the morning so will keep an eye out for y'all!

Play nicely and dont leave anyone behind, now!

Gladys, you slacker!!

Trogs - thanks.  Hopefully I won't need it and/or there will be a stall.  Had a few flats of late and think I need new tyres.  See ya tomorrow.

Enjoyed that a lot, thanks for your company Soupy.

Jaffa route may well become a regular training route for me - 45miles if I start it from home.  Might even try the carrot cake route at some stage as well for a slightly longer one.

The cakes provided (for a donation) at the end were exceptional

How fab was that?   Thanks to Trogs for the inner tube (needed before I even started), the company and spotting the direction signs that I missed.  I'll be doing the route again without doubt. Perfect, fast first half and lumpy second half but all the ups (and downs) were manageable.  Result.

Now where do I start with the cakes.................................? Words cannot do them justice.
