Impromptu night laning

Postby RCMike » Fri Jul 22, 2016 8:15 am

Simon, Scot and myself did a little bit of impromptu night laning last night. Looks like we chose the only wet night in the heatwave. This was a few lanes from my old Birdlip route - just picked the lanes in the middle of nowhere so as not to disturb anyone in houses etc.

Met up at 8pm in the rain, got underway 20 minutes later. Finished the lanes just after midnight and then set off home. Image

Scots surf decided to give my Disco a little "kiss on the wheel" - oooh er missus.Image

Not yet Steve - been very careful to pick open lanes. I did back out of a couple last night and met the boys at the other end. Darn tired today - i must be too old for night laning.
