LEL Twitter Feed Day 3:

Intrepid Reporter Percephone T. Crock is sharing her LEL diary with us! Ride along with her vicariously on her Dream Randonnee!

30 July: Raining.  Punched persistent US randonneur when he asked if l wanted to ‘poke’ in Pock. Saved by problem with his rfid chip that delayed him in Thirsk. Sweet sweet solitude until I met a jolly group of Scottsmen sharing a bottle of something that warmed my heart. Butt hurts.

Edinburgh here I come!

29 July: Raining.  Persistent US randonneur following me around speaking of q-factors and offering to ‘service’ me and my randonneuse turn out to be real. Dude can’t climb so I am allowed some peace until the descents. Stomach hurts.

28 July: Raining. Bad hangover from LEL beer session with Rupert. Disturbing dreams featuring persistant US randonneur following me around speaking of q-factors and offering to ‘service’ me and my randonneuse. Just make it to St. Ives, Perci, make it to St. Ives.

LEL Beer Workshop Session

Once again Rupert Smedley our detail orientated reader and correspondent from the UK has come through with valuable information essential for intrepid US randonneurs and folks hoping to challenge themselves with successful completion of the hallowed London-Edinburgh-London Audax event. Says Smedley, the YACF website has announced important news:

Refreshment and UK drinking traditions workshop

In light of the various requests for refreshment stops throughout the duration of the event, I am volunteering to run a Beer Workshop Session at The Last Post, Loughton on the Saturday evening from around 7pm onwards. What better way for you to familiarise oneself with the fine ale of our land and become acquainted with them – and their drinking traditions – all in convivial surroundings ?

The LAST POST Free House

The LAST POST Free House

Also, as an extended session, this may be an ideal chance to trade in songs, drinking games and forfeits from across the globe that may have been banned in the country of origin for health and safety reasons.

I hope to see you there on the 27th.
