    Don't forget El Capitan Ivor, who joined us at start but then headed off to board Auntie Rita

  7. seniors run 25/03/2018

    Also Ken and I, after chatting with the rest of the gang at Tardebigge, rode out to Throckmorton to watch the LVRC road race, where we saw Chris Poole who had been driving one of the lead cars. No problem with the tea, or the cheese/ham rolls!

    Ken has just heard from Elaine. Mike's funeral will take place at 13.00 on 18th April at Worcester Crematorium. More details may follow.

  11. Club Run 4th March 🐝🐝

    Pair of Fieldfares seen several times in past 36 hours, along with usual Robin, finches and various LBJ's. Sighted Red Kite last week, wheeling over Salwarpe/Droitwich by-pass Good to see Shellac is finally sticking to his armchair in bad weather
  12. Senior run 21st

    Bah! Humbug!
  13. Sad News

    Sad news indeed. I heard of it from ALP a couple of days ago. I raced against Laurence in many TT's and Richard raced against his son. From memory it was always Richard got the better of his son and t'other way around for me and Laurence, although never much in it either way. Immediately after each finish (and possibly immediately before), Laurence could be seen dragging deeply on a fag, I could never understand how he went so quick! After we both finished racing we occasionally bumped into each other in the lanes.
  14. Club Run 10th December 🐝🐝

    Good decision John, are you finally ready to join the Seniors run? Nice thought, Ivor, but from what I've just seen on local weather, I might need a shovel or snow shoes just to reach the pavement, never mind up the road. Wind chill forecast to feel like minus 6 as well. I'll keep an open mind and a closed door
  15. Seniors 3rd December

    It was a bit drizzly on the Lickey Hills so El Capitain decreed a 30 minute delay in meeting up. It was still drizzling as I made my way to Tardebigge but the clouds were looking less black when I got there to find Bazzer, Fingers and Derek Reynolds sheltering under the bridge. Almost immediately Rovi then ChrisP arrived, some gentle banter took place then ChrisP took off whilst the rest of us pottered away behind. In view of late start and conditions it was decided to go to Flyford instead of Hillers. This was duly done, losing Derek to a nonstop ride and passing Crackpot Towers en route. The day turned out well for us, damp roads but no more drizzle, getting quite bright towards the end. Bromsgrove Oly were not so lucky, they dripped into the cafe after us, having seemingly ridden out under their own personal rain cloud. Oh well, they say the sun (or at least the lack of rain) shines on the righteous (even if we did have Flatulence with us). So, those present today were Rovi, Bazzer, Flybynight and Tony. Barry, my eyesight is not failing me. The road closure (still in place) is at Lickey Rock. I blame the drizzle in my face and still being half asleep.
