    Despite what the forecasts say, we've only had a few April showers.

    The rain was booked for Wales to top up the waterfall that we'll be visiting on the road ride

    As far as toilet/shower blocks are concerned, that appears to be rather nice....

    I"m fully expecting to find all the little wind-blocked outer pitches occupied by RVs and wobbly boxes tonight, leaving those of us in no-mates single tents to camp right there in the fookin' middle.

    Its just the occassional April shower

    I've been out in the Midlands on my Yam ALL day (8am-6.30pm) for 3 days this week with a similar, if not worse, forecast on some of those days and have got wet just 3 times .Only one of those warranted putting the waterproofs on for 5 or 10 mins.

    There really is far more sunshine than the forecasts seem to picture and when you are travelling around you dodge the showers. Went to plenty of places on Monday where it had rained a bit but didn't get anything more than a couple of spots on my visor all day.
