alright, no point potting off the post this time - ride will go on. a little adventure for monday night.

certainly the last was nice, if not exactly according to plan... we will only go 15mi out again if monday riders want to - does open up options though...

I have some ideas of varying quality, and hopefully can manage to put together a decent & more planful plan of some sort. if anyone else is keen to lead this week, try to let me know before the weekend and that will be fine too.

sticking with same time one more week, like to roll at 7 after that, to still have some chance to catch any light.
