  1. 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!

    Derek Harrison ???

    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
  4. Well done the old brigade. 100s if not 1000+ at Droitwich Remembrance Parade this morning.
  5. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Don't forget El Capitan Ivor, who joined us at start but then headed off to board Auntie Rita
  10. Told Darren, he'll be expecting us. I'll catch you in Flying Horse Lane (unless you declare another route!)
  11. Don't throw out all the bathwater in favour of the babies, Dave
  12. Rigid bike box available. You know the thing - big blue box with locking catches, little trundle wheels and pulling handle. Ideal for testing destructive powers of airport baggage handlers.
  13. 1. Paddy Hopkirk roof rack, two 'clamp-on' gutter bars with fittings for two bikes 2. ASP (all spare parts) bike suitable for permanent use on turbo trainer. Steel frame, down-tube gear levers, no brakes! If anyone''s interested, PM me :-)
  14. 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!
