Monday 28th sept

Well after an absolutely superb weekend in Afan (I am sure someone else will be writing a full review about the weekend) there was a poor turn out on Monday, with me being the only one who rode the weekend and went out for our usual monday blast around the ampthill area. Out was Paul, Dee and myself, the ride was a good steady one without any stops or incidents. Dee seems to have got the bug and is now upgrading his bike (with the help of the cycle to work scheme - which i can't wait to hear about as he is about 150miles from his office!!!!!!!).
Getting back to the ride the sand is getting worse, I hate to say it but we really need some rain as there were more than a couple of arse twitching moments as we blasted down along the fence in the woods. When Paul and myself got back to the e and t we enjoyed a few beverages and Paul cooked enough pizza and nachos for about 5, so needless to say when we finished it all both of us couldnt move and were sweating more than we did throughout the whole of the ride.
Hopefully there will be a bigger turn out on thursday as those whose bodies couldnt take it will have recovered by then, well some of them we are getting on a bit and these things seem to take a long time!!!

Can't do today as I'm child-minding but Monday should be ok. Same time same place?

Also I know its dead cheeky as I don't know you guys (yet) but if you happen to have any cycle show tickets left I'd be interested.

Cheers, Claire

Hi Claire,
Its Chris that has the bike show tickets and he should be out on Monday so you will be able to ask him about them. As for same place and time, yep its 7 outside the Albion, hope to see you there.
