    Saturday Breakfast Ride

    Last year a few of us went to "Loomies" for breakfast and a short ride.

    This year I fancy the Little Chef at Popham - y'know the one where Heston Blumenthal tried to revamp their menu?

    Apparently it still serves "Olympic Breakfasts" so that'll do me.

    Looks to be about 20 miles away by sat-nag composed (boring) route.

    If anyone knows a more interesting route post-up ...but basically it's just going somewhere for brekkers.

    Say 10.00 start, if you want to join me.

    Theres a much better bike friendly cafe OPPOSITE at POPHAM AIRFEILD other side of the road, much easier to get to from the B ROAD route.

    Cafe is where the LANDS END Trial starts from and is the site of a massive bike jumble in the summer.

    would have finished work and probably just arrived by then so maybe yes may be a case of ground dumping my gear and going straight there

    always remember that you are absolutely unique, just like everyone else.

    Not discussed with the big badger yet but there's a chance we might be up for a trundle out for a second breakfast (badgers and hobbits have that predilection in common )...

    It depends on what condition I'm in at the time

    I think I'll take some bread and bacon just to be on the safe side

    Just to clarify, I'm far too big to be a Hobbit.

    Too many second breakfasts

    May have to be self catering - I'm planning a bevvy or two.
