What do weather forecasters know?

Bad weather forecasts, Fathers Day, people riding London to Brighton and broken bikes beat the ‘Dog ate my Helmet’ as this week’s top excuses but, to be fair, the weather forecast did look grim. So we decided on the day to halve the route and stop at Maidenhead so that riders could get back before the forecast thunder and lightening. In reality we could have probably done the whole route (and Gus did we believe) as the forecast didn’t materialise … although it did in Brighton we are told. Anyway, NIL POINTS for BBC Weather and the Met Office this week but a huge Chapeau! to the all-weather West London Cyclonauts who came out anyway. We dedicate this ride to former BBC weather forecaster Michael Fish … (if you’re too young, just google his name)

What does all this mean? Well here’s The Message:

I like a cycle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep goin’ in the thunder

Broken bikes everywhere
People cyclin’ in the rain, you know they just don’t care
I can take the front, can lead the boyz
Got no reason to duck out, I guess I got no choice
Whippets in the front row, sandbags at the back
Journeys down an alley with a cycling cap
I tried to get away but I couldn’t get far
Cause a man with a smart trek rode possessed like a star

Don’t push me cause I’m close to the edge
I’m trying not to lose my head
It’s like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin’ under
