|Toll, Chris, Doo, Trev, Phil and Jamie at Start of Snowdrop (2018)|
From Roger's, I cycled home up and over Rose Hill. I then cycled a part of TROAD and had a nice climb up to Astwood Bank. Nice descent then took me back back home. Great start to the week.
Tuesday saw me catch up with Ron. We had a good night cycling our Deer Route. Just like old times.
Wednesday and Friday were regular cycle to work and back commute days. I have usually rested my legs before a big event but not this week, oh no. I think it's good practice for TAW to complete as much 'back to back' stuff as I can.
Thursday was an odd day. Odd because I ran instead of cycling. Nice 5k jaunt around my village.
Saturday was the Snowdrop. A 120k audax. This was the first audax cycle event I ever completed and this effort today saw me complete my 125th audax to date.
I cycled from home to the start of the Snowdrop, all on my lonesome. However, once there, saw the beaming smiles of Toll, Chris, Trev, Jamie, Jez, Phil and Andy Genders which was awesome. A few of my buddies DNS.

Raphael's cafe was now open again (after a fire the previous year) in Evesham. The premises looked pretty great. The food, however, was awful. My fish (and chips) came complete with spinal cord. Ugh! It was good to see the B Team here.

Below is a series of pics from the Snowdrop over the years. Nostalgia and all that. Aces!
