As many of you will know Jenny and Simon, having been 2 of our earlier members leave the cosy confines of Ivinghoe and the comfort of HQ, the Rose and Crown. As Simon recently recounted 2 years ago they didn’t own a bike, yet now between them they have 4 between them in the UK alone (not forgetting 2 at their holiday retreat!).
Simon’s first run out on the fabled sunday ‘short’ ride saw him laid up on the sofa for the afternoon with exhaustion yet the 60 mile Luton Reliability ride a few weeks back was no problem.
For Jenny initially the return to cycling was the Industrial estate at Pitstone regaining her natural balance but as with Simon she rapidly progressed to her gleaming new road bike to join the Sunday ‘long’ ride on a regular basis.
So to this weekend we will be cycling (provided no monsoon) to say farewell to great friends, failing that please try and make it to HQ for 1230 tomorrow to have a drink and say farewell properly.
