I'm in, and will most probably join Aron on the ride home (if he lets me).

Ha, I'll have to try to awaken myself from my mid-season hibernation that I seem to have slipped in to.

Shall we agree now that whatever happens on Saturday is due to our week or so off the bike and the resultant loss of form?

I don't put too much stock one way or another in forecasts so many days out. We'll make adjustments for the weather if need be Friday evening or even Saturday morning.

Wow, Eugen! Long time, no see! I trust you received my e-mail sent a few days ago. Hope to see you Saturday, and yes, Oume is an easy turn off towards the end of the ride.

Just checking to be absolutely certain; the starting time for you is 7am, which is 30 mins later than the times we have been meeting at recently... So, that is 30 mins later for me to meet you up river...

?

Cheers

Yes, it's a shorter ride, so I've opted for us all to get 30 minutes extra beauty sleep! ;)
