Andy's Kona Blast on the promenade at Brighton. The famous pier can be
seen in the background.
I would have loved to join Andy on his ride to Brighton, but it was not to be (family commitments and so on) but we're on for a ride next Saturday and are highly likely to head for Flowers Farm and the teashop in Godstone.
I haven't been out all weekend. On Saturday, while I'd bought the leeches (to fix my rear wheel puncture) I spent the day on the south coast, returning late. I fixed the bike on Sunday morning and then went off to the disaster that was the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant. Then on Monday, well, it was raining and, as Andy said, we would have aborted it. Now, on Tuesday morning, it's lovely out there, but it's also nearly 9 o'clock in the morning as I write this; I wasn't up with lark so I haven't gone and with Andy not going, where's the incentive?
Well done to Andy, though, for brushing aside the weather and going for it. See photo above, taken by Andy yesterday when he reached the coast. I hope, Andy, that you had a swim in the sea before returning?
