New Forest.

In under a week, my plans for New Forest have changed half a dozen times. Here they are:

Mid last week :)
Going for the sportive in beautiful New Forest, on Sunday morning.
Late last week :(
Earliest train reaches only 4 mins before start, so no point going.
Saturday evening :)
Sportive cancelled due to flooding. Glad for money saved, and now I can plan for next time.
Saturday night :(
Sportive now scheduled the day before only other sportive I’m riding this year. Which one to skip?
Monday morning :)
Having passed the driving test, making plans to hire a car and take partner and dog down to New Forest for whole sportive weekend.
Monday night :(
Read report on sabotage of sportive, and heckling of cyclists in New Forest. Plans cancelled. Not going there ever again.
Tuesday morning :)
Screw New Forest vigilantes. I’ll just save money and head back up to Lake District or Scotland!
