In a county far far away route Master Bembridge is relaxing, but don’t worry he has promised “I’ll be back”. It’s been said his rides are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. Don’t worry though we still have some routes for you, like Clive & Ian, you’re a lean mean fighting machine, so will have no problem with these routes, so don’t say “I’m too old for this” as we all know; it’s not the years honey, it’s the milage.
While some of our routes feel like to infinity and beyond this week we will be back early, lunch is for wimps, but we can do Alan’s cheesey chips & Rod’s sandwich, along with beers, a martini, shaken, not stirred or pronouce “thats what I call high quality H2O”. Whatever she drinks makes Debs ride faster- I’ll have what she’s having!
If you get a pucture may the force be with you (of Trevor’s track pump), where does he get those wonderful toys? Carrying so much kit, we’ve going to need a bigger bike! But hopefully no mechanicals serious enough to phone home. so get that bike ready, I love the smell of GT 80 in the morning.
Our rides bring friendship and health benefits so you can live long and prosper, so come with me if you want to live, just like Owen, he does not feel pity, or remorse, or Fear and he absolutley will not stop. Last week Ben said I feel the need, the need for speed, so this weeks routes should suit. So join our rides- they will never take our freedom!
Rides start from Ivinghoe church (we are on a mission from God) for some fantastic challenging routes, be afraid, be very afraid. Pick your option and go ahead, make my day! Would you like me to seduce you? The 9am route is a very flat 100k called “Hills? where we are going we don’t need hills!” a great ride for the group- we’ve putting the band back together!
So whether you do a long ride like Mr Broadbent (We called him mother superior on account of the length of his habit) or a shorter option, just keep swimming, at the end of the ride you will say “I’m the king of the world”.
After the recent heatwave we might get a little bit of damp on our gears (wax on, wax off?) I’ve put my winter bike “baby” away in the garage but might need it this weekend, as we all know, no one puts baby in the corner. It can’t rain all the time, so ride with us and remember the first rule of the Ivinghoe velos is……..
Thanks Richard for the shorter routes, Like any good route, if you build it, he will come, it’s elementary dear Watson!
