Handbags and Reindeers

So here we are sat watching a punch up at the Aviva Stadium described as being simply handbags even Gucci handbags, I guess that’s where professional Rugby Union has taken us!

Tomorrow sees the ‘new bikes’ Hetheringtons heading to Milton Keynes for the MK Skyride to promote cycling to the masses whilst Gary continues his European family tour.

One for the Laydeeeeeeeees, Cycletta takes place in 2 weeks time starting and finishing at Whipsnade, whilst no longer a closed road route (apart from Bison Hill) this should be a good ride out. Needless to say whilst being a women only ride they can’t do it without the men and we are looking for volunteers to assist with marshalling and bike mending. Any volunteers please let us know through here please!

Having discovered that major department stores have opened their Christmas Departments our thoughts are turned to celebrating the festive season. Velos Christmas ‘bash’ for riders and their partners has been booked at the Old Hunters Lodge in Whipsnade on Friday 9th December 2011. The cost is £23.95 per head and a deposit of £10 per head is required to Jayne Raynor by 9th October, spaces are limited so first come first served, book early to avoid disappointment! Transport Manager Jim has kindly offered to organise transport (at additional cost) once numbers have been finalised news on this will follow in due course.

So to getting out on 2 wheels!



Have Fun!

  1. Hi Andrew & Gary

    This Sunday’s ride went really well – we had two groups evenly split for the longer ride, one fast and one slightly slower (13 mph avg) which everyone seemed happy with, even Jim who temporarily lost the fast group (?) so was able to hang back and meet up with us.

    Do you have contact details for Mike, Debbie, Kate & John? I’m conscious that the last time we saw them with the group they got left behind and haven’t been back since so I’d like to make contact to find out how they are and encourage them back if needed. It might also be useful to post up on the rides that the longer route will consist of two groups which may help to encourage people along – just a thought.

    And…we already have 10 people signed up for the Xmas meal!!!
