Today proved to be a disappointment, weather-wise, with the strengthening winds behind the cold front putting today's banner flight over North London out of the picture. I haven't heard back from 'Free Tibet' either, after having arranged a late landing before Sunset at Rochester on Sunday and so I suspect that any idea of 'Bouncing' the Olympic flame ceremony has gone out of the proverbial window.
Mind you, I don't think the weather will be good enough anyway.
So instead of flying, I joined several of my other motorcycle-riding councillors and their wives, for a ride to Dover. That's us looking rather windswept on the seafront at Palm Bay, outside Margate and Cliftonville. And if it looks cold, then it certainly was!
