So Phil finds some sun in Mallorca whilst checking out the velodrome in Sineu

Hi Stragglists,
 
Providing you made an early start last Sunday you could have ridden around a route and got back before the rain started. But you would have to be quick and get the timing right. Exchanging pleasantries over coffee and cake in the Pheasantry in Bushy Park would be the undoing for some as the rain was coming over fast. Meanwhile, over towards Richmond, the multitude of runners on the Cabbage Patch 10 pounded and, trickled and plodded through our drinks station near to Ham Polo Club. They and we were very lucky as the temperature was just about right for running and the rain held off till we had packed everything up. If you did manage to get out I hope you had a good ride.
 
Sunday’s Ride
This October has been the wettest on record. It might have been good for the garden but it hasn’t helped when wanting to enjoy an autumnal ride through the Surrey countryside. The low pressure is leaving us and high pressure is coming in so this Sunday looks like it might be a dry, albeit a colder one (7˚C at 9 o’clock). We need to climb some hills to keep the temperature up so this route has three reasonable climbs https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31326453 Hope to see you at the Angel.
 
Happy cycling,
 
Ray
