Weekend? It was nearly a week. Points earned

Not going to rule out a shower but no way will everyone get through with only 1 shower in the house. I'm sure there will be less demand for the hose pipe in the garden though

hopefully no bodies

As for a head count, I'm still not sure exactly how many are turning up as some are checking the weather first. Not everyone is riding either, but a couple of others are coming along for the ride but not camping. Short answer is we will find out on the day. I am hoping to have Nick Palmer along - we rode the route together last week. This will give us an option to split into 2 groups, meeting for lunch, if there are a few too many for 1 group.

When you get to the Hurlers car park you will see this bronze age burial mound (thank you google earth) which is part of my garden wall. Mark or I should be around to greet you.

Still room for one more?

Never been to a HUBB event before and this sounds right up my street. Still not certain I can make it yet, if I do come I'll arrive Sat lunchtime / afternoon, so I won't make the rideout. Is that OK?

Not sure what time we will be back from the trail-ride but there will be others about, possibly enjoying the sun in the garden . in the pub more likely. Pitch up and we'll see you sometime.

I'm afraid I won't be able to make it.

I attempted to crack my skull open in the footpeg of my bike in the workshop. Although I only managed to dig half a teaspoon of flesh out of the top of my head, I won't be able to to get a lid on over the resulting Tom & Jerry style lump let alone the dressing.

And the dog ate my homework.

Seriously, hope it isn't too serious and you can get your lid on again soon.

It was the Degu that ate my homework. The dog just raids the fridge.

I should be fine; killed a few million brain cells that's all.
