It's early evening and I'm tired. My arse aches and my eyes are sore but another century is in the bag after completing The Gridiron. Again

Don't know why I still do these silly things Dave, I guess it's habit.  But, for a change, we were blessed with fine and sunny weather, which somehow makes the day pass more quickly.  There had to be a million quid's worth of bikes on display at the tea-stops, ranging from 1970s steel to tomorrows carbon fibre, peppered with a handful of tandems.  Only saw one unpleasant accident when the rather large chap on my right shoulder failed to unclip in time to avoid falling on the event's steepest hill.  He just ran out of steam, stopped and fell heavily to his right, fortunately missing me.

How often have I uttered those immortal words after a night at Madame JoJo's, MtB! But mega congrats on another century/gridiron in the bag, quite puts my 25 to the Pots at Cheriton to shame #seriouslysloooowpootling!
