Code Red - CANCELLED

Duration: 1hr 20
Usual Tuesday night "fast" winter training route. 28 miles, rolling roads, expect an average speed of 21mph+. Big lights needed for the un-lit sections; mudguards also needed if the roads are wet.
For newcomers, the aim is to ride this fast as a group, doing turns when you can and rolling through to keep the pace high. It's not a chaingang though, and if you're struggling with the pace no-one will mind if you sit on at the back of the group. Finally, be aware that this ride doesn't wait for riders who are dropped, so please make sure you know how to get home.
I've been held up at work, and it's pouring rain. I should still just about make it time-wise, but my enthusiasm for a soaking wet 2-up is not very high. Going to see what it's like at 6.30, but if it's still lashing down i'm probably going to give this a miss.

I'm out. Good luck to anyone who braves it...
