Friday, November 15: The Battle of the Winwaed

Post by JTyre » Thu Nov 14, 2019 5:30 pm

On November 15, 655, Penda of Mercia was defeated by Oswiu of Bernicia. Isn't it high-time we celebrated with a crossride?

There are some spots in here that we haven't hit for quite a while.  For example, we haven't seen Anderson Hill for ages. Anderson Hill led to my first amputation after crashing on a Wonger-led ride.

It wasn't this bad ...

... but it was bad.

Like identical twins separated at birth, your route plans are the product of an obvious mind-meld!

JT: that leg thing is disgusting. But I'm glad you brought up ancient pagans (orifices must follow!) It's time to start thinking of what Cross version of the Solstice Ride we're going to do this year.

I'm still away. But have fun tomorrow! Enjoy walking your bikes while in Anderson Hill Park, as per TSCX Code 47.23(a)(iii).

I will be there, hopefully not working! But that leg does look nasty!

I take it your referring to the old pagan tradition of dunking toasted bread into bloody orifices Rolf?
