  1. 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 😩😩😩😑😑😑
  2. 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
  3. 🐝Well done the three β€˜B’s🐝🐝🐝
  4. 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”
  5. Come on Seniors don’t be shy let’s here about your run please?πŸ€”πŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²
  6. 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!
  7. Looking forward to seeing you all in the morning with the young pretenderπŸ‘πŸš²πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ˜ŸπŸΆ
  8. 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‘
  9. 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˜€
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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😩😑
  14. 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‘
  15. A most enjoyable outing on a grand day in great company! MANY THANKS TO YOU ALL πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸš²πŸΆ

  18. For sure I’ll second Ivor’s suggestion! It was horrible, cold, wet & windy + the lanes were atrocious!
  19. 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
  20. Very well done indeed! β€œTWO PROPER HEROES” made of real tough stuff πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  21. GONE BUT NEVER EVER FORGOTTEN!!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸš²πŸΆπŸΆπŸΆπŸΆ
  22. 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.??????
