  1. Yes another sad loss to the cycling world. If those wishing to attending the funeral can let me know, as the Beacon would like to have an idea of numbers to cater for.

    Hi Ivor Top right hand corner of the page a bell and next to it an envelope. Open the envelope and in the top right hand corner click compose new which opens message page.
  3. Can't make it tomorrow have a good ride.
  4. A happy birthday to Mick Flanagan. Best wishes from Chris & Hilary.
  5. The raving mad group enjoying a seasonal get together for breakfast. Note!! the new bench would have come in handy if the fire wood ran out. John E has now brought his own gas stove can't wait for the fire to warm up. Olly following a small portion diet has a tiny mess tin for cooking. Tess and Lottie show their upbringing with the best china plates to eat of. John E having trouble with his plumbing. Team photo. Now for the ride to the pub. A quick look back to see the ladies bringing up the rear. Good to have Hannah back out on the bike again but the hills don't get any easier. I think Lottie is taking a rest. Soon back on the bike will have to get her trained up for next years Birmingham Velo. Final push for the pub. Podium slipper use by the world sprint champion. Another great end to the year. A great day weather warm and sunny. Food and drink as good as ever. And of cause excellent company. Let's do it all again in 2020. A very Happy Christmas and New Year to all our followers.
  6. Usual meeting place Lydiate Ash Road by the bungalows. Start time 10 o'clock'ish short ride to Kitchen in the woods. After a gastronomic feast we will proceed to The Swan for refreshments. Don't forget frying pans food etc. Lights will be needed it could be dark when returning home. Be there whatever the weather Hopefully it should be a dry day.
  7. As John said cafe a very good find. Weather not to cold but rather windy. The view over the fields from the back of the building is great. Should be good in the summer sitting outside. Now for the important things tea, food and a chat. All good things come to an end. Now for the ride home. After a short stretch to Pershore into the wind the right turn for Pinvin put the wind behind us for the rest of the ride home. As the pictures show the sun was out most of the time. Roger an I only got caught in a shower climbing the Lickey's.
  8. More sad news i'm afraid. Don Harrison died early yesterday morning. Our thoughts go out to his family. Chris & Hilary
  9. Just to finish the weekend off a chinese at John & Ann's. Thanks for a good night.
  10. Hilary and Chris would like to thank all those that attended or Clubs 70th annual get together and made it a special evening. Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7
  11. A short cold run today after a late night and busy week. Did more reminiscing after last nights 70th club dinner. Also some eating and tea drinking. Nice to have the sun out but only 1-2 degs. Chris T's new winter bike.
  12. Rather a grey day some fog about and plenty of standing water. Rode out with Roger B to join the others via Earlswood. Arrived just after them. Squeezed into the setting and roasted by the fire. Most of the artwork taken by Moira. Almost took this one up Johns nose. Just good friends. Apart from the gloomy weather a good ride no wind about.
  13. Yes it was a little cold out my Garmin didn't get above 5 degs. Still the cafe was warm food hot and the tea welcombing. After all the rain the river was high but not over the wall like in the past. With food and drinks on the table the smiles are back. I think the winter has arrived. The drop in temperature gets to the chest as well as the legs. Maybe it is our age? No probably just the time of year.

    Eddies Funeral

    Please note there has been a change of venue after the funeral. It will now be held at The Kings Norton Golf Club. Please inform anyone you might have mentioned it to.
  15. It is with deep sadness that I have to announce the death of Eddie one of the founder members of the club. He was recently diagnosed with motor neurone disease and passed away last night. Our thoughts go out to Mavis, their girls Susan, Debbie and Caroline and the rest of the family. As our Chairman for many years he will be deeply missed. With deepest sympathy, Chris and Hilary.
