  1. It wasnโ€™t a warm day, and that wind was blowing hard again, but we (6) got a ride in. We went to a very nice cafe at Bishampton, it was full of cyclists, could do with being a bit bigger, but thatโ€™s always a problem. Anyway, it only rained for a short time, so we didnโ€™t get too wet. Todayโ€™s riders were:- Moira B. Chris Pardoe Roger B. Chris Poole Chris T. John S. ๐Ÿšฒ
  2. Bishampton, via Throgmorton. 10 oโ€™clock, Tardebigge. ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ•ณ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ
  3. Happy birthday Chris, many happy returns. Ann and John. ๐Ÿบ๐ŸŽ‚
  4. Eight of us started out together, but Mrs. Davis and Ivor went off to Bishampton, so that left Bev, Kev R. Kevin Y. Roger, Chris T. and me. We battled on through the elements, the strong wind that is, and got to the cafe just as Chris P. arrived. We hadnโ€™t been to this cafe before, and I must say it was very nice, I donโ€™t think it could have been very old. There werenโ€™t many people in there and we were served very quickly. Back into the wind, we ride back home. Apart from the wind, it was a very nice day, right up until I was about a mile and a half from home, when the rain ๐ŸŒง started, and by the time I got home I was drenched. The joys of cycling. ๐Ÿšฒ
  5. Hereโ€™s one we havenโ€™t been to before, Cliveโ€™s of Cropthorne, WR10 3NE, Farm Shop. Might be a bit breezy. 10 oโ€™clock. Tardebigge. ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ
  6. Just two of us started from Tardebigge, it was a cold ๐Ÿฅถ start. Alan T. and I had an easy ride around the lanes, looking out for icy patches, we stayed upright and arrived at Broad Acres at about 11:40. Mike McClure came in next (in the car), shortly followed by Tess, Roger and Chris P. Mick H. was next, and lastly, Chris T. on his brand new bike. Eating, drinking and chatting came next, the food there is very good and so are the prices, Tess, not having been there before was very impressed with it especially with the free tea top ups. Then it was back out in the cold to ride back home. ๐Ÿšฒ
  7. I thought weโ€™d have a gentle sobering up run this week, a steady ride round, and end up at Broad Acres. The weather looks quite cold, so if you want to start later, we could all meet up there. 10 oโ€™clock. Tardebigge. ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ
  8. Misty start this morning, but not too cold. Five of us from Tardebigge, Moira, Phil, Ivor the Engine, Chris T. and me. We had a nice steady ride over to Wooton Wawen, where we found the cafe was very busy, but we did manage to get seats, then a few minutes later, in came Chris P. and Roger. It was very good company and we all rode home together, after fixing Moiraโ€™s bike, and then Chris had a puncture on the way back. Oh well thatโ€™s the way it goes. ๐Ÿšฒ
  9. Wooton Wawen, The Cowshed. 10 oโ€™clock Tardebigge. ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝ
  10. Happy birthday Roger old chap, and many happy returns. Ann and John. ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ
  11. We got to Pershore no problems at all, there were quite a few puddles about but they didnโ€™t cause any trouble. Eight of us started from Tardebigge, but Ivor zoomed off in a different direction. So there was Moir, Bev, Kevin R. Phil, Chris T. Roger And me. We spent a happy forty-five, or so, minutes filling our faces and sorting out the worldโ€™s problems, and then back home. It was a coldish day, but not too bad, there was plenty of room in the cafe, I think people were keeping away after seeing the floods in the news. Good day out. ๐Ÿšฒ
  12. Well, if it turns out that we canโ€™t get there, weโ€™ll meet up at Broad Acres. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
  13. Pershore, hope it isnโ€™t flooded. Last week it was voted that we start at 10 oโ€™clock for the winter, so, until next spring 10 oโ€™clock will be the starting time. We will be starting on time, donโ€™t be late. 10 oโ€™clock. Tardebigge. ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝ
  14. Well the rain did stop thank goodness, it was a bit cool, only got up to 5.5 degrees. But it was quite a nice day. After saying all that, there were a lot of deep puddles that we had to ride through. Seven of us started from Tardebigge, Moira, Bev, Kevin R., Kevin Y., Roger, Phil And me. We did stop for two minutes at eleven oโ€™clock on the way. Arriving at the cafe we found Mick already there, that made eight, then ,in came Tess and Chris, ten, not bad for a cold November day. After refreshments, we had a steady ride home. I think there were few aching leg today, must be the time of the year, or old age, no must be the time of the year. ๐Ÿšฒ
  15. The one on the side of the river, west side.

  23. Ann and I are very sad to hear the news about Eddie, he kept the Saracen going through the good times and the bad times, and then back to the good times again. The club was only just ticking over twenty years ago when we had the fiftieth anniversary, but after that Eddie got things up and running again, and the club got back to what it is today. Eddie had a lot of other interests as well, mainly with things mechanical, he could always be found in the garage, tinckering with something or other. But we will always remember him mainly for the club. The Saracen will never be quite the same again. R.I.P. Eddie
  24. Happy birthday Ivor, and many happy returns. Ann and John. ๐ŸŽ‚
  25. Yes, we did need winter bikes today, there were a lot of puddles on the roads, we had to turn back a couple of times because of flooding. Anyway, we got to the cafe at Evesham which was up to it,s usual standard. It was a cold start, Jack the Frost had been out in the night, but he didnโ€™t cause us any problems. The sunshine was very pleasant for the most part of the ride. And todayโ€™s riders were:- Bev A Kevin R. Moira B. Roger B. Mick H. Kevin Y. Chris T. Chris P. John S. ๐Ÿšฒ
