real ale wobble
Yes, it’s nearly that time of year again. Time to take training to the next level; drink copious amounts af suspiciously named ale, then ride bikes, then ride while drinking, then drink.
It’s Real Ale Wobble time!

This year we’ve gone all “luxury” and hired a lodge in the woods to stay in, rather than suffer the usual sub-zero temperatures in a tent…with only the promise of a cold shower in mixed sex showers with no doors…showers that open out onto the main road. Also new this year will be Steve cooking for us on the Friday night…instead of fish and chips from the chippy in Builth Wells on the way down, as had previously been the case. To top off the changes we’re expecting (well, I certainly am) to ride all 3 days this year, as opposed to the usual ‘get there too late to do anything other than fight for a table in the pub’ on friday, complete half the route on saturday then feel too hung over to ride on sunday

The ale will no doubt be just as suspicious though.


  1. Spoke to Steve last night, after rescuing him from the A59, about us travelling down early on Friday. It will be easier for him as well as he can go straight from work. I will look to be at yours for about 9am on friday if thats of, so we can arrive by lunch time.

  2. Cool, I think she’s expecting us around 1.30 – 2pm, but she’s going to leave the keys somewhere secret for me to pick up so we can turn up a bit earlier i reckon
