I can not believe the lengths you will go to just so you don't have to ride with me
Seriously what a bummer.
Thanks for organising a great day. Had a fantastic time (well maybe the lower back pain was not so great), perfect weather, bit lacking on the snow front, great company, got to meet some new people (Hi Marty, Velocipede and DaveCole) and had beer on the way home.
Feeling all warm and snug after a shower and a pint of stout.

Might need to rename the ride the windy ride, bikes I saw looked far too clean for it to be called a mud ride... And other than the gusty wind, the conditions weren't that bad today so unfortunately most of the snow had gone for you too.
Got to meet Jeff, Ridingwithdale, elmet and No disipline at the top of my first lap. Nice to meet you guys! Waved at the rest of the crew as you all descended.
Second lap was pretty close in time to my first at only 35 seconds slower but with a fraction higher average power, so showed the shifting wind conditions as the day progressed. Third lap with the fatigue starting to set in and the enthusiasm to hurt myself diminishing I got to the top but 3:40 slower than the second lap.
Going to now set the recorder, can't see myself making it the the start of le tour let alone the finish of the stage tonight.
