Recommended Posts

After a cold, windy and wet day Saturday relief to get up on Sunday

to a dry but grey start to the day.

The ride over to Marie Curie Hospice with Tess O and Roger B was cold with rain threatening.

After registering and signing on, numbers fixed in place and timing chip on helmet we joined the

other 1000 for the of.

We were all prepared in long sleeve tops and tights as the temp was down to 6 deg's when we set of into the lanes.


In the lanes not long after the start around Barston the other side of Knowle.


Oophs!!! nearly dropped the camera again.


Climbing up The Ridgeway to the Nevill Arms turn.


Feed stop at Feckenham village hall.

Ready for a cup of tea and a cake.

Note! what is eaten the most Sugary cakes and thing or savoury tarts.


Mick H giving the ladies advice on nutrition.


Re fuelled we set of for the return leg.


Climbing back up the Ridgeway to Astwood Bank Moire oppens up a gap hoping to reach the top first.


Kevin R leads the pursuit.


Back into the lanes passing Studley Castle and the start of some climbing to be done.


The final push of the day Forde Hall lane 


Just to show I was there.


Our support team to cheer us in at the finish.


A few pic' of the team.

EddieS, MavisS, MoiraB, TessO, BevA, MickH, KevinR, JohnS, RogerB, and AlanT who came up from Dorset to ride with us plus myself.


Post ride in the Hospice for more tea and cakes.


It was decided the cheese or ham buns after the event were so dry they sucked the last drop of moisture left in your mouth after 4 hours in the saddle.

Possibly stored in the freezer from when the event was cancelled last year.


A Chinese Take Away at John & Ann's our usual finish to a great day out.


Alan takes on a red flush, probably to many glasses of red wine. 


Kay Godwin informed us that the Saracen RC must turn up again next year is it will be a special event.

It would have been Toms !00th Birthday and the're hopping to raise an even bigger amount for The Hospice where he spent his last days.
