      All you need is a good root (TM) and you'll be snug and dry.
      There is no bad weather, only inappropriate gear.

      I'll decide on the day when we all meet up at Shell Westgate if it is worth it. But since you will be there we might as well ride

      Yay! This ride will hopefully heads up a few that we are not pacified, we are still angry and we have not gone away.

      Be good to see you if you can get up here.
