The Gimp Squad

The Gimp Squad were all out today and had a great morning, as the weather just got better and better. Bert and Ernie were rocking the kinkiest overshoes ever. I had my new gimp jacket and Hannibal was rocking his man in black look before getting down and dirty at tomorrow's cross race.

We'd braved rain to get down to Forester Green, but once there the rain stopped and things brightened up. With a slight west wind we settled on Dromore, but as usual wiggled a bit to get there. We were all on relaxed form and did long turns as we chatted away, just enjoying being out on quiet roads. We swung out beyond Dromore, then back in for coffee using some roads we learnt on the Dromore CC sportive.

Refreshed we headed for Ballynahinch and halfway dropped the hammer - it was a training ride after all.... The route home took in a few lesser used roads and a few frequently used roads, bringing four smiling cyclists back to Belfast. Turns out I run better on Heinekenpower than Peronipower, but maybe it's a quantity thing..... ‪#‎rubberbandits‬
