  7. 19 NOVEMBER

    Forgot to say that we past Ruth and Christine twice and that on leaving the cafe a mile down the road we came across Alan P loitering with intent so he joined us for a while . We also cycled past Brain and his friends walking twice they were a long way from TB but the question is did they walk all that way .Second time we saw them they were just approaching Bishampton.

    Yes I did lose my footing just trying to show how to do it with dignity. Will try to incorporate it next year. A great night yesterday good food, interesting surroundings and good company. Hope everyone enjoyed it. These are the pictures.
  10. Annual Club Dinner

    Yet again another successful and thoroughly enjoyable Saracen annual dinner. It really is a testament to Chris and Hilary's preparation and implementation that the whole evening ran so smoothly. Karen was particularly appreciative of the warm welcome she received and has now been inspired to take up cycling and has already drawn up her next challenge to cycle from her home in south Derbyshire to mine in Kings Norton. We both loved Chris’s brilliant speech and are already looking forward to the next event. Karen and (New) Sean
  11. 19 NOVEMBER

    Five of us left The Forrest Me , Bev , Kev , Dave S and Tim we were missing our leader Mr Shelley who had a house guest from last night meal which was a very enjoyable evening with excellent food so thanks to Hiliary and Chris for organising yet another good night out. Anyway back to cycling I had a puncture on the way out which Kev sorted for me never seen anyone do a puncture so quickly . We went out via Bishampton arriving at the cafe in good time so we were able to get a table by the window looking out. As soon as we sat down Mr Shelley arrived saying he'd worn his cycling kit at breakfast and had clomped around the house prior to this to ensure that Alan and his wife were up so he could get out on his bike. And there was me thinking that I might actually gain a crafty point on him 😇. We were just enjoying our tea when Chris P and Tess arrived . CHris made a grand entrance which Philpott would have been proud of. As he was just turning in on his bike right in front of the window we were sitting him he very gracefully fell off his bike and ended up in a heap on the floor . Of we didn't laught too loud honest 8/10 for style and 10/10 for entertainment value. We were then joined by a large number of the Beacon and even had to give our table up for them leaving Chris and Tess there. As we were leaving Miixk H turned up and as we were cycling down the road we saw Pat , Ken and Bob doubt they got into the cafe as some were sitting outside as it was so full. An enjoyable ride back until I got another puncture on my rear wheel again this time changed by John. Since getting home Kev has very kindly put a new tyre on for me so hopefully I might manage a ride without puncturing on the rear.
  12. Annual Club Dinner

    Hello Hilary and Chris, Once again it was a big success, thank you very much for your hard work, I know, to make things go smoothly it is like a duck swimming, you can’t see the hard work under the water. I particularly liked Chris’s speech and the bit about us lot falling off. I would just like to add that Chris himself fell off today right in front of the cafe window. So I hope you do another next year. Here’s to the next one. Ann and John. 👏
  13. Annual Club Dinner

    Good morning everyone, Thanks Leigh you've posted before I have had chance to thank everyone who came along to The Arrow Mill Hotel last night. We had an enjoyable evening and from comments that we received we gather that the majority felt the same. The compliments make all the work worthwhile. Maybe, just maybe, Chris can be persuaded to organise another event next year!! Thank you. Best wishes from Hilary and Chris.

  19. Roy Cromack

    Sad to hear today from Tony that Roy has passed away. He had been ill for some time and ended his days peacefully in a hospice. I had the honour of being a teammate of his in the 70s and spent most of the time looking at his seat post wishing it would all end soon. We also served in the RAF together. Roy (born 18 February 1940) represented Britain in track races and in international road races such as the Peace Race. He was the first British cyclist to ride more than 500 miles in a 24-hour time trial. He rode 507 miles in the RTTC national 24-hour championship in July 1969. It was his first ride at the distance and the first time 500 miles had been bettered.The record stood for 28 years. He beat the second rider, Eric Matthews, by 15 miles. He was a rare all-rounder, winning championship medals from 4,000 metres on the track to 24 hours on the road. He won medals at every distance in British time-trialling championships and rode the road race for Britain at the Olympic Games in Mexico.
