    We had hail like that this morning. The snow came a bit later.

    I went on one of today's CTC rides. Our very own Richard Burton led
    what turned out to be the hilliest ride I've ever done. I used to think
    I liked hills - I realised today that I only really like them when they
    have the occasional flat bit in between!

    Anyway, I demonstrated how recumbents can climb perfectly well before
    lunch, but don't do such a good job after lunch.

    Is this limited to recumbents? Perhaps you could tow an upright until
    lunch and then tow the recumbent. A set of stabilisers and a length of
    rope should suffice as long as you don't corner too hard or brake on
    hills! :)

    Not so lucky. Either a side wind or in my face for most of the loop.
    Steering was 'interesting' at several farm gates.

    The part with a tail wind was through trees so little benefit.

    average speed was down massively -- but it was bright & sparkly and much
    better out than not.

    Nice ride despite the wind.

    I'd have stopped to try to save his life as I would with anyone who was
    seriously hurt, no matter what my personal feelings about them. I think
    retribution could be considered complete at that point.

    Numpties filming from inside their car as they overtake some kids on
    bikes. One of them opens the rear door and leans right out to take a
    swipe at one of the kids. The door swings open, carrying him further
    out than he intends. He gets the bumper of a parked car full in the
    mush and rapidly exits the car.
