Tuesday Night Bike Ride


Welcome to this week`s blog where last night The Good Lord was kind with the weather for the first time in a long time. (Start as usual from The White Lion Pub Great Kingshill 7pm.)
 
In attendance: Yours truly
                        David
                        Martin Wilkins
                        Tim
                        Colin (a welcome returnee)
                        Alan (home again after a nappy changing experience in OZ)
 
This evening`s ride took in the picturesque route of Gt Missenden, South Heath, The Lee, Ballinger, Hyde End, Hyde Heath, Lt Missenden and home.
 
Once again it was good to see Colin and Alan back in the fold and looking forward to more rides as the summer progresses.
 
Unfortunately the ride didn`t start too well as Dave`s chain jammed in Gt Missenden, but once free he fainted as Martin W informed him as to what it would cost to repair!
 
When he came round we continued for approx 15-20 miles whilst revelling in near daylight conditions until at least approx 21.00.
 
A good time was had by all - especially those who stopped at the pub afterwards,
and let`s all hope that the weather next week will be as good.
 
A date for your diary is Saturday 9/5/12 as we intend to get the train from Wycombe to Leamington and cycle the canal towpath into Birmingham (approx 35 miles), before returning home that afternoon. All welcome on the day but this may involve an early start. 
 
Hope to see you all again en mass next week.
Martin Bowen Mr Trek!
