Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my jo, (Dave, Ian , Sally, Sarah, “insert name here”)
for auld lang syne,
we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be at your pint-stop!
and surely I’ll be at mine!
And we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


We two have cycled about the slopes,
and rolled along lanes fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary mile,
since auld lang syne.


We two have pedalled through the stream,
from morning sun till down;
But miles between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

And that, my friends, is what it’s all about.  Making trusty friends, both human and bi-/tri- cycle, and taking a good-will draught together.  There are many variations and translations of Burns’ original Old Friends song, it seemed rude not to have our own to see the old year out. (Don’t worry….. I’m sure Burns’ Night will see some other variation of something familiar to keep you on your pedals!)

So, for those who feel so inclined to do one last pootle out for the year…. 10am at the Rose & Crown.

For everyone …. Best Wishes to you & yours for the New Year, from all at Velos HQ.
