Back home after an excellent weekend in Swindon with lots of old friends and some new ones.
Rained for the for few miles and then brightened up so didn't get too wet on the bike.
Most of the journey I was surrounded by a legion, not of Danvers, but of Jacks! Swansea City supporters in coaches, vans stretch limos and cars driving down to Wembley.
Already looking forward to next year.
Thank you to Jasper and the Fforganisers.

Just wandered through the door, bit tired. Nice to meet so many people, can hardly remember many names though.
Bit wet here, might go to the pub....

Great weekend, thank you to all involved

Fab weekend. Anyone that spurns the opportunity to attend is clearly madder than those that don't buy gorgonzola at 1.27.
