It was good to see you all at our July clubnight. Because of the football, we did consider postponing it, but decided that it was our designated night and we should carry on. The Alma were very accomodating, and with an attendance of 26,(27 if you count my contribuition) Im pleased we went ahead. About ten or so of us had a ride around the lanes before the meeting, and it was very encouraging to see the enthusiasm for this hasn't diminished. I gave my old bike a run out, and I apologise for the signalling at the junctions! In our task of moving back to how things used to be, I am planning a daytime ride on the 27th, leaving the Alma at 10-30am. Im looking for places we can turn up at without causing too much fuss for a spot of lunch. There will be a fish and chip run to Mersea courtesy of Paul, at some point,and the trip to the music venue with Julian and FD was very popular and we hope to repeat that before long. Any suggestions for future visits are always welcome. Hope to see you again soon. Gordon
Just a quick update on this mornings news! Steve Toy has agreed to take us on an evening ride on July 27th to pay a visit to the Hadleigh club night. As you may be aware, several of us belong to both clubs. Details will be sent out as usual. Because of that, my daytime ride will be moved to July 30th, leaving the Alma at 10-30, destination yet to be decided! I hope to see you all at both! Gordon
Just to confirm that the next club night is on July 7th at the Alma. George has arranged the evening with the Alma. There will be a premeeting ride leaving the Alma at the landlords request at 7pm. I hope to organise a daytime run in the last week in July. In the mean time if anyone has a ride they would like to share, please let us know.
As you will have seen from Colins e mails there was a well attended ride out to Littley Green, led by the intrepid Chris Mac, who had already done quite a few miles to get to the Alma for the start. I understand it was a good ride and a fitting start to our season of regular rides. I hope to get one organised for July. Julian has organised a ride for this Friday evening, 18th, leaving the Alma at 5pm, but as I write the weather forecast doesnt look too good so watch your e mails for the latest info. Our next club night on July 8th will follow the same format as last month. There will be a pre meeting ride leaving at 7pm from the Alma, not Church Lane! I hope to see you there .Gordon
After months of inactivity, we finally managed our first club night for nine months on June 2nd. George did a grand job of negotiating with the Alma and we had a dedicated seating area and the car park reserved for the bikes. We had a good turnout with 23 members, 3 guests and 21 bikes, which made a good show in the car park. some of us had a short ride around the local lanes and I hope I found some that you hadn't travelled lately. Im sorry I didnt stay for the meeting, but I think Colin explained. I understand that we also gained a new member. Julian proposed a ride on June 19th so if you are going let us know asap. Keep an eye on your e mails for up to date information. Lets hope we get back to a bit of normality in July. The next clubnight is July 7th . Gordon
