    Nice blog, +Shannonball. I have just about warmed up.

    As for the gloves, if only there was a category for riders wearing tweed...

    The thought of you riding that 25 in your Crocs is the stuff of nightmares.

    Nice report, +Sir_Shannonball

    So what did we learn? Well, for one thing I should probably outsource signing duties to Rachael Elliott, and riding duties to Remco Evenepoel, and just focus on the cake.

    Good day out. The bike was clearly determined to not allow even a momentary breach of Rule #90. Those who live by the big ring,...

    If you want to try one of these rides:

    A search on the forum unearthed the "Photos of ourselves in action" thread (in Club Matters) from mid-2014.
    It includes a number of photos from the first year, including those below.

    Love the photos of the first club run. I was riding the same bike that I will be riding this coming Sunday, which is not bad for longevity (the bike, not me).

    Ha! I am very glad that you do not bear grudges. You were spared a sartorial horror show.

    +ShauNuff - Your role in the development of the club (and of its kit) is impossible to overstate.

    Regarding kit, do I recall correctly that you were also involved in/responsible for the infamous Ugly Kit Ride, when members were challenged to come along one Sunday wearing their most ghastly items of club clothing? I am glad that any photos of that episode seem to be absent from +Sir_Shannonball's album.

    More generally, good blog, +Sir_Shannonball

    "Richard May, who, it turned out, lived in Islington and was a lawyer, which sounded useful."

    Really? To expect any lawyer to be useful surely represents a major triumph of hope over experience.

    Anyway, subject to that lawyerly quibble, a nice blog +Sir_Shannonball.
