    Toad on the Road

    As Sgt Bilco is otherwise occupied I have volunteered to step in to the breach and run a road ride.

    This will be a bimble about rather than high speed dash, and will involve lunch and photo stops.

    The initial route I've compiled is likely to take a few hours, meaning we can be back mid-afternoon in time for a snooze before Saturday night

    We'll assemble in the car park at the Hand for a 10:30 kick-off.

    Drop-off system as usual.

    Anyone for tailender?

    To help with the popularity of this ride out I can categorically promise not to come for a 'bimble', so you should all be safe

    Mrs. M wouldn't consider riding as far as Llangolliwog on the HD

    She takes a week of persuading to ride to the pub on it

    Hence why the shovel will have 1 seat
