  1. It’s my wife Cat’s big birthday today and although she said yes I can ride, she also explained that I shouldn’t be surprised if the locks have changed upon my return (!!), so probably best to pass on Painswick. Have fun everyone! Beautiful day!! I am pinning down some ride windows so hopeful for next week.
