    Default The Idle...this Sunday 22nd

    Sunday is looking reasonable weather wise, would anyone fancy a paddle down the Idle before the weeds become problematical?

    9am meet up at Old London Rd West Drayton. Get a shuttle sorted to Chainbridge Lane, hopefully on the water before 10, about 11 miles all downhill.

    I'd love to but will have to say no. I'll be in Matlock teaching on a water rescue course.
