Dull and Wet!

It's official!

August 2008 had the least sunshine of any August in the UK since records began in 1929!

It was also the fifth wettest on record!

Raj and I discussed running a more family friendly ride (something akin to The Downs Link) in addition to the more usual 100-mile weekender so please don't be put off by the rather extreme nature of this year's JoGLE!

Also on the radar is a possible cross-Switzerland Euro-ride from Lake Constance to Lake Geneva via Lake Lucerne incorporating the Haemophilia Societies from Switzerland, Germany, Italy and France.

I think I will need Mirella's C-3PO linguistic skills for that though!

But I'm open to suggestions...if you know a route and some mountain bikers willing to raise funds, please get in touch!
