    Had a communication from the hotel today to say they'd introduced a new breakfast cereal - Karpet Krunchies. They contain added fibre (from the Karpets) and are especially for the non-discerning. Kool, eh?

    No problem, the Yorkshire Drive I organise usually has a variety of cars as does Norm’s. In fact Norm’s 2019 had no Strats at all due to the biblical rain that was forecast.

    Good lad, Mark, glad you're coming! In fact I'd already got your name down on my list here, so Ta for making it so I don't have to cross you out Don't worry about not speaking Northern, we're well used to communicating with those from the Far South. Usually by judicious use of a middle finger.

    Andy, as David says, you can come along in and drive whatever you like. In fact you can do it on a pushbike if that's what floats your boat, but we'll all be back home by the time you return to the hotel on the Monday And, I can't see my Strat being ready in time for the Yorkshire Run in early June, so it'll be the Porsche...with Leah navigating, and therefore the slowest and lostest car attending, and waving at other attendees as we pass in the opposite direction on the odd occasions we see each other on the route (thus spake the Voice of Experience.)

    Ah, so that touches a nerve, does it....hmmm....if the conversation looks like it may be flagging during the evening, it would appear we've been handed a sure-fire way of livening things up

    We were out and about the other day and spotted a peloton of about 10 riders taking up the whole of one carriageway. Tour de Yorkshire I think not!!!!. Oh for a box of drawing pins that would steady them up a bit.
