I'm feeling sad, as the weather looks shite and today looks the best day of all the days to come. Come on the weather man, give us a window of decent dry days........... :( Or maybe as Si mentions, I might just wet myself.

Yup, it's all looking a bit carp for tomorrow :(. I'll leave the final call until around 8.00 p.m. tonight - with an alternative date if needed.

Four Counties Rideout on 14th Oct' postponed; Now on for Sunday 28th October

That's basicaly it folks.

All the weather oracles say the same thing - The heavy rain front will start over the westcountry again tonight and continue east through the day. So we'd be chasing continuous rain, simple as that. :cry: :cry: :cry:

So we'll do do the ride on Sunday 28th October instead - the long-range forecast looks favourable.

However :) - and so as not to give up a ride that easily tomorrow :D :D , I'm going to re-assess the situation in the a.m. and if it's clearing from the west as forecast I'll take a ride out that way, leaving Sainsburys in Ottery EX11 1BW at 1100 hrs. Anyone want to join me? I'll aim to be in Bridge M/C's at 1130 if Ottery isn't suitable for a meet.

Right, I'm off to the pub to get wet on the inside :D .
