  5. Last week
  6. Well done all it’s quite a lumpy ride over there No sheep walk I notice just being nice to the ladies?
  7. Yes Roger and I got our skates on this morning and made it to the cafe before John's party had finish teas. As John said the place had been tidied up and table clothes were laid. It was nice to have some extra company to ride back with, it's been a long time since we last got together. It makes a good change to ride over Kinver direction albeit a little up and down. Moira looks in good form. Nice to meet Julie our newest member, welcome to the Saracen RC. The usual struggle of Kinver Hill. Pity the sun wasn't out but nice being a little cooler.
  8. Nice ride to Halfpenny Green today, more comfortable with the weather around 20 degrees. The cafe has been changed a little and redecorated. So, Moira, Julie, Leigh, Gordon and me had a steady ride to HG cafe where after a while Chris and Roger came in, and a lot of chatting went on, it was really nice to see everyone. We all rode home together, and I think there will be a few photos being posted after this. 🚲
  9. This week we will be meeting at Sanders Park (just a one off) and going to Halfpenny Green Airport, we haven’t been over that way for a while. 9,30 Sanders Park Bromsgrove. πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸš΄πŸ½

    No 2 run 18th July

    Well done all of you. Sounded like a good old fashioned ,all day,club run. No stop for tea??
  13. No need to bother with gilet, or wet weather gear today. Sun hat, tanning cream and plenty of water. Tess O rolling up at 10 ready for a long day in the sun. Set of in the same direction as John and co. out from Tardebigge, having rounded the golf coarse spotted Ivor going home in the opposite direction. He must have been up early to get his miles up in the hundreds for the week. We took the route to Fladbury and Charlton where we continued on in the Broadway direction. Meeting the Cheltenham we turned right then took the second left turn heading in the Winchcombe direction. Roger looks in good form with Tess hanging on. First sight of the Cotswold ahead having ridden mainly on flat roads. Reaching Toddington we went straight on to do a little climbing op Stanway hill. Past the GWR railway centre the climb wasn't far ahead. Roger and i waited for Tess to arrive at the top. She didn't take long plus a following car. Left turn at the top just a little more uphill to the top. Now for that rewarding ride across the top heading for Chipping Camden and the cafe. Along the way stopped to photograph the stunning fields of the lavender farm. Like John and Co. much to warm outside to sit in the sun. Crossing by the Lavender farm the Garmin did go just above 32 degs. Now for the return trip. Chipping Camden is still very quiet. Oops. By the time we reached Ullenhall Tess needed to give her feet a rest. I don't think she's crying ? Having decided earlier not to go into Purity brewery thinking we would never get back we made the Peacock for a well earned pint to finish the day of. We all enjoyed a rather testing Tour of the Cotswold.
  14. What a hot day today !! I saw 29 degrees on the Garmin, but that didn’t stop 5 brave soles venturing out. Julie, Moira, Bev, Kev and me had a steady ride out to Clive’s, the cafe wasn’t too crowded so we were able to sit inside where it was much cooler. After refreshments we rode home without incident. Nice ride but we were glad to get home 🏠 and get out of the heat. 🚲
  15. Got a Christening to go to . Had to buy a new suit (she said) @ M& S . No idea when I will wear it again too light for funerals . If you are short and round available for hire .
  16. Clive’s of Cropthorne, it’s going to be very warm, so don’t forget the sun cream. 9,30 Tardebigge πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸš΄πŸ½
  17. Happy to hear you are joining the club . It will bring the average age down somewhat .
  18. Set of with Roger B and Tess O to fit some extra summer miles while the weather was ideal for biking. Headed out straight down the A38 for Driotwich then swung right for Ombersley and Holt Fleet. turned left at Holt Heath heading for Hallow where we turned right and made our way to Leigh Sinton. Top of a hill in the lanes we caught sight of my destination where Tess had to stop and take a picture in disbelief. Took the long climb up to West Malvern then along the Main Road through Malvern Wells before dropping of the side and heading to Upton upon Severn. We zoomed past the Marina without stopping. We made our way to Defford for refreshment so that we would have a shorter ride home. Roger is looking a little tired. Steeds at the ready only 30 miles to go fortunately the wind was with us all the way home. A good days riding by all.
  19. Hi I've been on a few club runs and have really enjoyed them. The members are very welcoming. I'd like to join the club but the link to the application form isn't working for me. Can you help please. Thank you. Julie
  20. Six started today from TB. Moira, Julie, Leigh, Mick Dolton. Gordon, and me. The weather was just about perfect for cycling, about nineteen/ twenty degrees and not a lot of wind. The ride over to Long Marston was at a steady speed, through some lanes that we haven’t been through for a while. At the cafe we sat outside in the sunshine 🌞, and then in a while Chris and Alan Philpot came and joined us. After eating and drinking and taking the pee, we all rode back together, but having to stop by the side of the road for a minute or two , to let some of the tea out again. The ride home was incident free, and the wind was with us.🚲
  21. Look forward to the ride.Thanks.
  22. Espresso Barn at Long Marston, the forecast is for dry weather, and the wind not too strong. 9,30 Tardebigge πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸš΄πŸ½
  23. As I said it is difficult to choose i set a limit of Β£90 but mine was about Β£65
  24. Must compare bums sometime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just looked it up on computer .Bit puzzled by price range .Are these different saddles or what?
  25. Just fitted a Selle SMP Medium saddle. Just like an armchair. Perfect for an old β€œbum” It’s difficult to know which one of the 39 types to choose.
  26. The Devil looks after his own. I'll say no more!
  27. Roger and I met up as usual cloudy but no rain about. Set of in Earlswood direction fairly warm with occasional sun pocking through. Continued on to Five Ways Claverdon and Fenn End still no rain about. Turned for home via Knowle and on towards Earlswood we felt a few spots in the air so decided to stop for tea and cake at Wedges but the rain never came. After refreshments continue trip home not a drop of rain fell. It must be true the sun shines on the righteous and it always rains around Bromsgrove.
