The rain eased off just before 7 p.m. but there was a lot of standing water on the course. It was also quite dark.
Paul J turned up in time and went home, Roger then turned up and wanted to ride. Tom came on his bike just before 7. I still cancelled and set off home and saw another rider (looked like Gisli, but visibility was poor) near Oxton.
Then it started raining harder again.
It is not about being hard enough to cope with rain, it is about safety. Mapperley also cancelled their event.
