  1. So apologies to you even older ones or should I say Seniors WE needed and will need on future outings an early start to make the most of Jack’s short time away from WORK😩😑
  2. Well one & all, are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin:- it was like this:- Jack is doing a sponsored charity ride over what we used to call the Witsun Bank Holiday weekend (β€œBuilth Wells time” to the older & initiated members) Its work related & his Midland & NW Office are responsible for the last 180mls sector of the John β€˜O’ groats - Landsend route, over 3 days! It has been circa 5yrs since he last put his leg over a bicycle & needless to say should have started to do some regular riding ASAP! Well he did today & contrary to my old belief that cunning, experience, old-age & treachery are more than a match for youth, enthusiasm & naivety I WAS PROVED WRONG YET AGAIN!!!!!!!!! Our literal & metaphorical leader set a more than reasonable pace after our caring & erstwhile companions disappeared into the distance and Jack was fine until his tenderised β€œtenderloin” crotch became more than a mild distraction! Only the final miles on Crutch Lane were something of a struggle! I advised a proper bath and a β€œnight off the nest” by the way of a recovery + also tried to instill in him the need to abstain for at least a month before a β€œBIG EVENT”; just like Eddy Merckx & his DAD did πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  3. A most enjoyable outing on a grand day in great company! MANY THANKS TO YOU ALL πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²πŸΆ
  4. Very well done to the fast guys,
  5. Myself & Leigh are there now Ivor!πŸ‘πŸš²πŸ‘
  6. For sure I’ll second Ivor’s suggestion! It was horrible, cold, wet & windy + the lanes were atrocious!
  7. Great pictures Chris & likewise sentiments to all those there in celebration of a life all too short! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²
  8. Very well done indeed! β€œTWO PROPER HEROES” made of real tough stuff πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  9. GONE BUT NEVER EVER FORGOTTEN!!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸΆπŸΆπŸΆπŸΆ
  10. Sad news indeed that I’ve only just learned of at the end of what had been a glorious day(Jack’s 23rd Birthday) & wall to wall sunshine from late morning! MY BEST MAN ? OF 39yrs AGO AND ONE WOULD STRUGGLE TO FIND A BETTER ONE IN LIFE TO TO THIS VERY DAY! HE HAD THE COURAGE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF A LION WHICH COUPLED WITH A HEART OF GOLD MADE HIM A VERY SPECIAL FRIEND WHO COULD ALWAYS BE RELIED UPON TO BE JUST JIM, BE TOTALLY STRAIGHT WITH YOU NO MATTER HOW PAINFUL HIS WORDS OF WISDOM AND TRUTH WERE TO HEAR! YES HE’D TELL YOU WHAT A PRAT YOU’D BEEN BUT WOULD ALWAYS BE THERE TO HELP PICK UP THE PIECES AND BE THERE TO DO WHATEVER IN TIMES OF NEED! A THOROUGHLY GREAT GUY WHO’S PASSING LEAVES ALL SO MUCH THE POORER.??????
  11. DEAR ALL :- THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN MOVED TO PEA ROYD LANE, IN STOCKSBRIDGE NEAR SHEFFIELD (NO EXPLANATION OFFERED OR GIVEN AS TO THE WHYS OR WHEREFORES) INFORMATION FROM CYCLING WEEKLY ON THURSDAY 4th OCTOBER????????????
  12. BELATED BIRTHDAY WISHES TO YOU HANNAH & looking forward to seeing you & Owen @ the shop in the very near future ??????????????
  13. Dear all please don’t wait around for me as I’ve succumbed to gardening aches and pains & will not be out this morning! Have a safe, enjoyable incident-free ride one & all!???????
  14. 09.30hrs meet @ Tardebigge:- some may be fit & confident enough to join in with the ?’s ............if any are not a suitable alternative can be discussed there & then?????☝️??
  15. Also sounds good ? to me Moira, it’s an excellent venue & nice roads there & back if John takes the circuitice route (round the Wrekin or should I say round the Bredon?) However I think it’s probably too far for me in your illustrious company so I will post a Seniors run as well, albeit with the same meeting location & time!????
