  11. The details of this Sportive (see attachment) were sent to me today through the Saracen 'Club Profile' on the British Cycling website. Is there anyone out there who might like to take on this challenge, with the prospect of new roads and plenty of sheep, despite the headquarters being in Leominster ????? To make it absolutely clear, I do not include myself in the category of "anyone out there". DROVER CYCLES HEREFORDSHIRE DEVIL SPORTIVE - SUNDAY 12th MAY 2019.msg
  12. So good to see the young suffer !!! Jack did well and like so many before at this stage trailed along and will no doubt soon leave me in his dust . Ah well take my pleasure whilst I can .
  13. So apologies to you even older ones or should I say Seniors WE needed and will need on future outings an early start to make the most of Jack’s short time away from WORK😩😑
  14. Well one & all, are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin:- it was like this:- Jack is doing a sponsored charity ride over what we used to call the Witsun Bank Holiday weekend (β€œBuilth Wells time” to the older & initiated members) Its work related & his Midland & NW Office are responsible for the last 180mls sector of the John β€˜O’ groats - Landsend route, over 3 days! It has been circa 5yrs since he last put his leg over a bicycle & needless to say should have started to do some regular riding ASAP! Well he did today & contrary to my old belief that cunning, experience, old-age & treachery are more than a match for youth, enthusiasm & naivety I WAS PROVED WRONG YET AGAIN!!!!!!!!! Our literal & metaphorical leader set a more than reasonable pace after our caring & erstwhile companions disappeared into the distance and Jack was fine until his tenderised β€œtenderloin” crotch became more than a mild distraction! Only the final miles on Crutch Lane were something of a struggle! I advised a proper bath and a β€œnight off the nest” by the way of a recovery + also tried to instill in him the need to abstain for at least a month before a β€œBIG EVENT”; just like Eddy Merckx & his DAD did πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  15. Got the timing right today arrived at Upton Marina before they'ed started eating. After passing through Callow End and over the Common couldn't resist taking a couple of pic's of the Malvern in the distance. Almost forgot I had the camera in the cafe but got a few shots of the crew about to set of for home. I think Alan is just tidying John up. John looking after the ladies. As John mentioned the wind was rather strong. Back in Winter gear maybe it will be warmer next weekend.
  16. The Senior run. Ken, Ivor and myself met at 11.15 and proceeded to Stourport. Cafe very busy but we sat at the table of a ex racing motorcycle rider which provided an interesting change of conversation. Home into the wind but a great day out in good company, both on the road and at the cafe. We really must keep the Senior run going forward, hopefully with more club members.
  17. The magnificent seven started off from Tardebigge (Bev, Moira, Phil, Chris K, Jack K, Leigh and me)to Upton upon Severn, but part way Chris, Jack and Leigh decided to go to Pershore instead. Then there were four, we went on to Upton, where we found Alan P. ,and just after, Chris P. came in. We put the world to rights as usual, then battled the elements back home. Good ride but the wind was quite strong. 🚲
  18. Seniors,------ Any riders for a chilly one at 10 ??? otherwise i won' t bother turning up and maybe do a solo later.
  19. Happy Birthday Sam Hope you have a great day

  25. After discussing the forum layout at a recent committee meeting it was decided that the layout needed refreshing. You will notice some changes to the layout which should be more streamlined and logical.
  26. Mavis and Eddie Smith's eldest daughter, Susan, who is 62, will be taking on an End-to-End ride in June for Diabetes UK, and the following is taken from the flyer that Susan has had printed to publicise her ride. "Suzy's LeJog - Cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats for Diabetes UK because members of my family have Diabetes. Thanks for taking the time to read my story. I am cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats starting on June 11th 2019 for 15 days and finishing on June 25th. This will be totally self-supported, carrying all our own luggage. Myself and four friends have decided on this personal challenge, probably the biggest challenge I, for one, will ever undertake, especially after I had two knee replacements 3 years ago. We are all fundraising for different Charities, those of which are personal to us, which is why I am raising money for Diabetes UK. As a few of you may know my daughter Fae was diagnosed with this horrible disease when she was 26 and since then has relied on insulin 4 times a day; more recently my Mum has been diagnosed and in the last few weeks so has my husband. It is one of those diseases that perhaps you don't really think about and I for one didn't realise how greatly it may change one's life. I'd like to thank you in advance for your donations to such a necessary charity. I will keep updates as to how we are getting on during the ride via Facebook or on Strava (providing technology permits), so lots of encouragement please; I can assure you it will be greatly appreciated. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money to the charity. So, it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity. To donate, please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Suzy-Palmer " The schedule for Susan's ride is : Tuesday, June 11th - start at Lands End - finish at Fowey. Wednesday 12th - finish at Exeter. Thursday 13th - finish at Bridgwater. Friday 14th - finish at Monmouth. Saturday 15th - finish at Church Stretton. Sunday 16th - finish at Chester. Monday 17th - finish at Garstang. Tuesday 18th - finish at Patterdale (Lake District). Wednesday 19th - finish at Moffat. Thursday 20th - finish at Dumbarton. Friday 21st - finish at Glencoe. Saturday 22nd - finish at Foyers (Loch Ness). Sunday 23rd - finish at Invershin. Monday 24th - finish at Bettyhill. Tuesday 25th - finish at John O'Groats.
