  1. Managed to catch up with the Bs at Warwick. They had already sorted out the table arrangements when I arrived. Must have a word with Michelle if a colour combination of Orange & Red are acceptable. Bev refuses to accept any responsibility. Plenty of dirty plates and empty tea pots. All present and ready to go after a trip to the Loo. Not many in the main square. Showed the group a nice short cut up Fordehall Lane back of Ullenhall on the way home much appreciated by all. John Shelley leads the way. Bev in full flight the full English has given her plenty of strength. Chris T taking the advice.I give to Michelle don't look up. Then speeds by. Moira don;t like hills.
  2. Note! All runs will start from Mick Hazlewoods house on Sunday 28th May Start 10 o'clock ish. We will finish there for a club gathering as his message below of May 3rd states. All welcome riders and non riders. The Saracen committee have discussed having a Summer Social event with clubs runs meeting and leaving my house in Fairfield and then returning for Food and Drinks at my house in the afternoon. All Saracens are welcome both riding and non riding members where they can enjoy catching up with each other at a non formal occasion. There can be 2 runs which will cater for all levels of fitness with a distance of between 20 - 60 miles approx. Hopefully this will be well supported and any help with the food preparations appreciated. Hopefully the weather will be kind for us but there will be plenty of uncover shelter as I will erect a small a marque in the garden. I think PUDDINGS would be appreciated. Spread the word.

  4. Set of to meet the Bs at Hidcote Gardens and with the wind behind me made good time. Both arriving at the same time. As you will see with the sun out the place was very busy. A great day for riding the bike just a little windy on the way home. Most enjoyable shared with Bev, Moira, Mick H, Kevin R, Tim, Myself, and lead today by Dave S
  5. Hi Sean its like an adjuster to push the crank into position on the axle. Not a locking nut.
  6. Hi Speedy as John said we needed you today with some help into the wind plus as he said what else can you do on a Sunday and its getting warmer. Although It wasn't as windy as the C's made out plus it would have been behind them on the way home. Well done to Tess and Claire who joined us today for rather more miles than they expected. Over 80 by the time we reached Northfield. A few picture in a warm spot by the sea which is Lakeside near Bredon Hardwick. After Tim turned for home in Blackwell avoiding the Lickeys, Tess, Claire and me rode up Twatling road to the top of Rose Hill to finish the day of spoiled at the top by me having a rear wheel puncture. Claire takes it in her srtide. Tess goes for glory. Well done to them both a good day out hope they will be out with us in the future.
  7. A few pics from Sundays trip to the airfield. Owen still has a problem with his tongue dropping out. Lining up for the return flight home,
  8. John didn't mention Richard Kent who was already at Halfpenny Green airport having breakfast.
  9. What a GREAT DAY for an Audax. Great weather. Great turn out. And Great food provided once again by Juilie. Just a few pictures for the archives. Sorry for the start but somethings best kept behind a fence. A big well done to Leigh for making it to Charlcote and back along side Chris Kent. Tim trying to sort the legs out wants to make it 100 miles trip including riding to the start then back home. Filling up the tank ready for the off. Our ladies keeping the paper work up to date Note! the organiser Sean no where to be seen. Getting ready to start. NOTE I WAS THERE MAN BEHIND THE CAMERA A few odd Saracen members. Blue sky great turn out. Whats going on up the road? First obstacle. We did pass through Evesham. Charlcote garden centre time for refrechments. David and Judy Jones ready to sign us in. We left them both taking in the sun. Unfortunately a touch of wheels brought Alan Townsend down near Coughton Court. Crash Helmets do come in handy. Fortunately no lasting damage to the head and after riding back to John Shelleys from Julies he was back to his normal self !!!! Good to have Eddie and Mavis join us to finish the day off. . Well done to Sean for a great day out.
  10. Hilary didn't like to announce her own birthday so it's left up to me. MANY HAPPY RETURNS of THE DAY Still only a youngster. We wont make club tonight I'll give her a rest from cooking but it's going to cost me. CHRIS
  11. A good day for riding the bike. Got to the cafe same time as Kevin Y arrived. Joined the others for tea and refreshments just befors Alan P arrived. Kevin Y of up the road soon had him back under control. Men't to be a shot of the Malvern but by the time I got the camera out the view was lost behind a much taller hedge. A few words of wisdom to Moira from the coach. Now focused on the job ahead. Nice to be riding in the sun again. Six months of this will be great. .
  12. Do a bit of swimming then Triathlon?
  13. if I get my timing right will join you at Wayside.
  14. Set out a little late heading for the Railway Carriage. Decided to do a loop via Earlswood, Henley, then Stratford before taking a right turn and cross to Milcote wind mainly from the right. All going well until Earlswood where the front tyre took a puncture. After much searching of the cover and not finding the offending thorn, glass etc. Fitted new tube and continued on my way. Pleased to say a couple of passing riders did offer assistance. A couple of miles further on caught up Jim Duggan the second time in a week as we met him on Tuesday. Had a short chat before he turned to head back home. Continued on the Shipton road after leaving Stratford before turning right for Long Marsden by now the time is getting on and the chances of catching the Bs is remote, plus have turned direct into a head wind. But will still go to the cafe to collect the much needed points. Thought I would take a couple of pictures for proof. Time 12:40 note I haven't changed the time on the camera since last summer still will save doing it next week. Not a cyclist to be found. Now for the struggle home. Hope it wasn't to cold for everyone in the carriage. Will try to get my timing right next week.
  15. Caught up with the Bs at The Cobhouse they were already finishing their refreshments. Forgot to get the camera out as I had to have a quick drink before we left. Missed a picture of Moira spread on the road resting, but have one up and ready for actin. The others wait after giving lots of advice. Heading back to Cutnall Green. Oops almost lost the camera. Seemed to have lost the riders. There they are of up the road. Makes a nice change to have the sun out again.
