  1. Thank you Barry, you're too kind, and very generous especially coming from a Lancastrian All the best and keep in touch re house progress.
  2. Barry, I wish you well in your pump manning (hand or floor variety). As you know I have been through similar shenanigans over the past 18 months. Any advice I can give you will be based on still having a garage full of boxes, full of I don't know what, but you have my sympathy. I'll look forward to your eventual return to the even more senior ranks, in the hope that I will have recovered enough fitness to give you at least one kicking in the half wheeling stakes PS I didn't know a bike had an upside chain? Does it connect the top tube to the bottom bracket?
  3. I apologise for bailing out just short of the official destination, but as I explained to El Capitan, I was concerned that eight of us turning up at such a late hour might have caused disruption at the cafe. So Chris and I returned via Bishampton and I can vouch for the excellent service, standard and quantity of tea imbibed and toast/jam consumed. Team points please!
  4. Well it was good to get out, better to meet up with Help the Aged, and even better to be able to keep up (most of the time). Thanks for the company and chat, third time out this year and I doubled this years mileage!

    Well Chris, that's the only source I can find with that information. Importantly, Wikipedia which is normally up to date doesn't have notice of passing. Last update was four months ago but I'd have thought something like that would have been posted. Also surprising that nothing been reported via cycling weekly? (haven't read the Comic for about 14 years so wouldn't know anyway). Let's hope for the best.

    Its a cracker

    What do you call a man with a paper bag over his head? -> -> -> Russell
  7. Well done the old brigade. 100s if not 1000+ at Droitwich Remembrance Parade this morning.
  8. Very sad news. I first met Jim when I was at university, then our paths crossed many times over the years before I finally joined the Saracen. Ever present at Halesowen track (and Salford Park before that) plus also officiating at road races. He mentored my son Richard for a time. Always ready with one of his dry quips or fast 'put me downs' but never stinting on advice, and a real heart of gold.

    Birthday greetings

    Thank you clubmates
  10. From Steve : Sue and I thought you would be interested to know that last week’s Cream Tea event went very well, with a really good turnout aided of course, by brilliant weather. Great to see the Saracen there in force, as ever! With everyone’s generosity, we raised £738 on the day, which with Gift Aid, generated a total of £922. This is a fantastic result and will make a massive difference to our schools in Nepal, of course. A big thank you to everyone who supported the event and whose donations generated such a large amount. We continue to receive additional donations, so we hope the final total will be close to £1000. We hope to see you again next year. Many thanks. Cheers Steve
  11. https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/savewellesbourneairfield Owners want to demolish all buildings and develop the site. Stratford Council wants to use Compulsory Purchase Order to save the airfield, jobs and cafe.
  12. Don't forget El Capitan Ivor, who joined us at start but then headed off to board Auntie Rita
  13. Told Darren, he'll be expecting us. I'll catch you in Flying Horse Lane (unless you declare another route!)
  14. Don't throw out all the bathwater in favour of the babies, Dave
