    Absolutely brilliant . Thanks .
  6. With such a warm and sunny day on Sunday decided to take the camera and remind those not riding far what the Cotswold still look like. Went out via Alcester, Welford and on through Long Marston before getting the camera out. Leaving Long Marston looking towards The Cotswod. Heading into Mickleton. Barry Lucas demise the hill up to Hidcote Gardens. Turn right at the top and head for Ebrington. Take the right hand lane by the pub. Next place Chipping Campden. The first time i've seen the High Street empty. The cafe down the alley now serves fry ups again. Now for a little climbing out of Campden. Crossing the main road from Broadway to Stow. Top of the Wolds down the lane with the lavender farm on the left. Next place Snowshill. Then the fast descent into Broadway. The only people in Brodway cyclists and motor cyclists. The return route home via bottom of Saintbury and through Honeybourne and Bidford. Finishing of up the usual lanes from Hillers, Inkberrow up to Tardebigge with the Lickeys to finish. What a Great day for a Great ride.

    Ivor's missing answers. The crossroads Ivor thought was Wroxall was a few miles farther on at Hasley I went straight on to Hatton. The cider pub was The Bluebell ran by John & Ann Hadley the move to run The Hampstall cider house at Astley Buff near Stourport. Haven't got that long to wait for the little grey cells to activate for John S. The pub used to be called The Rippleridge Inn. Went to Harvington Hall many years ago think it's about time for another visit. Glad someone looks at my pictures. Have somemore so will start another page.
  8. That seascape A. is Bartly Green Reservoir. If you have been out and about, and ridden past a Ford, you may have seen more of a sea side seen. Last Saturday I rode over the Ford at Coughton, couldn’t believe the parked cars, all the people and all the kids in the water. B. That is Havington Hall, at Harvington. C. Is St. Mary’s Church. D. Been in there a few times, The Plough at Shensone. E. That pub is now called The Honey Bee, but I’ve been scratching my head trying to remember the old name, but it hasn’t come to me yet. If it does I’ll get back. 🚲
  9. I'm a bit behind the others but that's not new. Happy Birthday Mike.
  10. Happy birthday Mick, and many happy returns. Ann and John.🎂🍺
  11. Today Mike Hazlewood has a birthday. Many happy returns of the day Mike. Best wishes from Chris and Hilary.

    Tuesday 26/05/20 Another sunny day ahead should be a warm one. Dig out the shorts and summer top look forward to a few good hours on the bike. Take the camera and take more pictures to identify. Legs feel good would be nice by the seaside as a couple of hundred miles is now acceptable lets go. A) Blue skies not much wind about where's this seascape? B) Haven't been round here for a long time. Whats the house and where is it? C) Seems to have its own church what's it called? This looks like an interesting building. D) Nice pub. Name and place? E) Another pub. What was it originally called. Don't forget to complete the questions Ivor missed from the earlier set of pictures first.

    Well spotted Dave a bit of a give away leaving the sign post in the picture. Nice to see Ivor can still remember his way around. He almost got everything correct BUT. What was the name of pub selling cider? ( do you know the name of the Beacon member who ran it, went on to run another cider pub at Astley Buff on the river Severn. Can you name it.) The one he mistook was Wroxall where should it be. Looks like another good week ahead maybe take the camera out again.
  16. Thank you, Chris, for a very enjoyable 'virtual' ride. What superb photography! Item 'D' - can I have a point for still being able to read the Packwood House sign? The Fleur de Lys pub - it must be almost 60 years since I last rode past here - both up and down the hill. Of course, I never stopped to sample the fare as I was too intent on getting in as many non-stop hard miles as possible - a misguided compulsion that I eventually overcame, and which is now very much under control.

  19. MY 26th Social Distanced Solo Ride. What another great day for riding bikes. As we can now go out and ride until our legs drop of I took the camera out today. Lets see who knows some local places in a 30 mile radius. Went out in an easterly to south easterly direction, for those who rarely travel that direction a map and compass may be needed to identify the places and route I took. A) didn't quite make the seaside. What's this. B) Whats this pub called and what did it sell. C) Michelle's favorite cake shop. Name should be easy. Where? Cafe is closed but still open for other sales. D) Where does this drive leed to. What's the name of the house. . Looking back down the drive.. E) Name the other property not far away. F) What the village to the right of this crossroad. G) Where could this be. G) This is a well known pub/hotel on this road called? and place. H) Dropping back into the lanes what direction might i be heading. I've past this this place going the other way and looking back. . Some nice lanes you miss if not riding over this way. I) Going straight over where am i. This is where i've come from. J) They used to make the best meat pies in the country if not the world. Where is it and what is it. K) How many miles did i cover. Passed lots of pubs pity they were all closed. For a small fee guide tours can be arranged at 2 metres of course. Lets see who has the knowledge. Should pass an hour away.

    i'm impressed you're managing 100/120 miles a day. 40/50 me.
  24. Sorry Chris, I honestly never saw you. I've seen several club members and Thursday riders over the past 8 weeks, even stopping for a chat at times observing social distance. At my age I have difficulty catching anybody!! even people on sit up and beg electrics, perhaps my head was down on my way home on my last legs, but I am pleased and fortunately well enough to be getting out 3 days a week, between 100/120 miles on very quiet Worcestershire roads, long may it last. I will watch out for you in future!! keep circulating the photo's.

    Hi Ivor you'd better get your battery well charged. I saw Barry this morning near Stock Green chasing after some young lady. Or she'd just past him going very fast. He didn't even have time to give me a wave.
  26. Happy birthday Terry, and many happy returns. Ann and John. 🎂🍷
  27. Terry Dunsby has a birthday today. Many happy returns of the day Terry. Best wishes from Chris and Hilary.
  28. Spent two years delivering newspapers for Lindsey Brothers on the Green. (1953-1955) So all very familiar.
