To speak of many things
Of seats & brakes & saddles bags
Of trusty old chain rings
And why we all get on our bikes
On Saturday mornings.
“But wait a bit,” the Riders cried,
“Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!” *
“No hurry!” said the ride leader.
They thanked her much for that.
“A loaf of bread,” the Walrus said,
“Is what we chiefly need:
Traybakes and teacakes besides
Are very good indeed–
Now if you’re ready, Riders dear,
We can begin to feed.”
It’s all about priorities and on the Tea Ride, it the chat and the cake stop.
Everyone welcome, helmet on, roll up, 10am at the Rose & Crown, Ivinghoe – and off we go!
