Bring some good waterproofs mate! *eek*

Yes, I rode a bit over a hundred miles yesterday from Tonbridge to Ringwood for added fun avoiding the motorways, it rained a fair bit and the roads were mostly wet, and the daytime temp although summer in the uk is the same as the NZ winter I just left! I’m sure it will improve, but I’m not sure I want to ride to Banbury and back tomorrow.....  *eek*

1949 C11 rigid, but why!!! (cos it was cheap)

1937 B21, missing parts so mission impossible?

Yep I was there but to cold to display the sweatshirt (I had it on under the rain mac). It was not as good as last year (probably the weather) but still very good. Jumble was crap. Hope you had a good time. Soup is good for the cold  *smile*

Jumble was poor but I did find a b21 timing cover for 15 quid (hard to find one in nz!)

And this how I got there  *help* *pull hair out*
