    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.

    Find at least one café that’s open

    One advantage of indoor rides at Christmas is that one always has a plate of mince pies close to hand.

    Thanks +Sir_Shannonball. Great photos.

    One for 2023.

    Nice blog. And it is, of course, comforting to know that there is at least one form of bike racing where age is performance enhancing.

    Nice blog.

    Like Mr Johnson's recent resignation, being caught by that infernal machine was less a question of "if" and more one of "when".

    Great fun (and superb post-ride millionaire's shortbread at HQ).
