  1. Leigh was admitted to the Alexandra Hospital in the early hours of yesterday morning with an acute viral infection!😩 (Ward 10 Bay D)
  2. It became apparent from the outset that a number of us were not on for the full route! We caught Tony up on Church Lane, Bradley Green who was on a solo non-stopper & turned left at the Pinvin traffic lights. I believe that Chris Thompson was also going to do his own thing but with a stop at Pershore as he went left with the Mr Shelley group turning off left before the Pershore traffic-lights! We that is Barry, Leigh, Mike, Gordon and myself pressed on to Defford where good food, brilliant sunshine & tea together with the occasional sprinkling by a water-cannon was enjoyed on the patio. An incident-free great day out in good company! What more could one wish for on a September run in early Autumn!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸš²πŸš²πŸ™πŸ™πŸ‘
  3. Yes well I’m currently @ Leigh’s recovering from a difficult, enjoyable & testing 70.78mls ride Some memorable roads & lanes that owing to advancing years, senility & possibly shrinking numbers (which on a more serious note is concerning) we rarely get to ride on particularly in such blissful conditions! Thanks to John for his imagination & leadership + Moira, Barry, Alan & Chris for great company on another SARACEN memorable day out! EXCELLENT VENUE.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ MOIRA legendary over such testing terrain with more pluck and BxxxS than many of the male gender however I can’t help but thinking that she ought to be doing more SERIOUS GARDENING!πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸΆπŸΆ
  4. Tardebigge @ 09β€’30 if anyone is interested for a shorter less arduous ride to De-Beers, Stourport or Bewdley subject to numbers, interest & weather
  5. Very well done Moira & John for keeping the club’s metaphorical β€œend up”whilst us slackers languished in us pits till an ungodly hour bereft of enthusiasm & positivity.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸš²πŸš²πŸ‘ Further to the above:- Also well done Ivor, Tony, Christine & Mr P πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸš²πŸš²πŸΆπŸΆ
  6. Coming back Hill Furze Road after the top of Fladbury Hill and where it passes the Vale Golf & Country Club was bloody awful & virtually unrideable on the left hand side which they were doing!!!!! I cannot remember ever getting so many chippings wedged under the fork-crown & rear brake-bridge + tar all around the circumference of both tyres 😩😩😩😑😑😑
  7. Looking forward to seeing you all in the morning but I won’t be venturing as far as C.C. so may divert to an alternative venue en route!πŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²πŸš²
  8. 🐝Well done the three β€˜B’s🐝🐝🐝
  9. Well done the Seniors one & all, particularly Barry for having the male genitalia to:- (1) Tell us about it! AND (2) To dabble with this β€œNEW FANGLE IT THINGIE”
  10. Come on Seniors don’t be shy let’s here about your run please?πŸ€”πŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²
  11. Many thanks for Chris’s kindness & efforts in pushing Jack for which he was most grateful & doubted whether he would have got back without !πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸš²πŸ‘πŸΆπŸΆ Great days outing with top-drawer company on roads that we don’t see enough of!
  12. Looking forward to seeing you all in the morning with the young pretenderπŸ‘πŸš²πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ˜ŸπŸΆ
  13. Well it was like this for the Seniors & Moira in the absence of any β€˜B’s:- Ivor, Ken, Pete, Barry, Leigh, Moira & I + guest Doug Pinkerton headed off to Bewdley via Wychbold, Cutnall Green & Stourport where Ivor & Doug departed for a shorter outing. As they turned short Brian Taylor(82 this year) M. C.& A.C. joined our depleted number The Riverside Cafe’ was busy as would be expected on such a glorious day! A pleasant return via Stourport, Hartlebury & Rushock topped off a splendid incident-free outing! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²πŸ‘
  14. Dear ALL :- Just in case any of you weren’t aware as I certainly wasn’t it’s come round again and is tomorrow afternoon-evening with the Elite Ladies @ 17.30hrs followed by the Men @ 19.00hrs! I hope that they have better weather than today has brought!πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ™πŸš²πŸ˜€
  15. So JOHN I AM CONFUSED β€’ COM !!!! If indeed you did go again to WICKHAMFORD (where you went to a fortnight ago) I could understand why you lost at least 4 (Bev,Kev,Chris T. & Pete) along the way in that I understood that you were in fact going to the Cobhouse Fishery near WICHENFORD not a cafe’ at WICKHAMFORD? Please expedite?
  16. Yes that’s fine for me particularly as I wouldn’t want to miss the 11.30 cut-off for the BIG BREAKFAST DEALπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸš²
  17. Any takers for an 09β€’30 meeting at Tardebigge with Bewdley as the intended destination! I believe the regular β€˜B’s are riding the rescheduled Tommy GODWIN memorial charity eventπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²
  18. 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😩😑
  19. 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‘
  20. A most enjoyable outing on a grand day in great company! MANY THANKS TO YOU ALL πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²πŸΆ
  21. Very well done to the fast guys,
  22. Myself & Leigh are there now Ivor!πŸ‘πŸš²πŸ‘
  23. For sure I’ll second Ivor’s suggestion! It was horrible, cold, wet & windy + the lanes were atrocious!
  24. 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
  25. Very well done indeed! β€œTWO PROPER HEROES” made of real tough stuff πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
