I set off at 8.30 & hardly needed the pedals as I was blasted into Deal in record time by a stiff breeze - but it wasn't raining! At around 9 Bill V arrived but expressed no interest in an extended bike ride. By this time it was raining pretty hard but I headed for Sandwich & was surprised to find that I still had a following wind. Sandwich was decidedly dreach (a Scottish word meaning - well you know already!) & here I could feel the elements saying "Aha I've got you now" & they had. The next 7 miles were hard but I am bound to say I have known worse. Home & dry by 10.30 having done 17 miles. Let's hope things have improved by next Tuesday! (BK)

What wimps! All but two put off by a bit of a breeze a few spots of rain. On time 9am Bill V & Bill K met at the pier agreeing how mad we both were. One second past 9am we went our separate ways. Bill K to Sandwich thence home via the country lanes whilst Bill V battled against the wind back to darkest Walmer. On a personal note I was delighted to find I am not the only one with a yellow rain cape. BK has one too! See you all in France next week. (BV)
