Well, Storm Dennis lived up to expectations. As probably expected my planned ride to Podimore was cancelled after reviewing the conditions from Dikes Café at 10:30am on Saturday morning. Mary made a valiant ride from Shaftesbury to the start looking very windswept. Charlie and I had the easy short ride to the start with an excellent tail wind, he said he was getting a bit concerned for Ron as he had set off some time ago and should now have arrived. In the event it turned out that Ron had come unstuck against strong cross winds and decided to call it a day. It was good to see Richard in fine spirits following his overseas adventures, although our current weather has come as a contrast after being used to 30 deg C temperatures. I plan to have another attempt at my Podimore ride on 9 May 20.
