Summer BBQ: This year's Club Barbecue will be held on Monday, 1st August (7.30 p.m. at the Rugby Club). It is always a fun evening so we look forward to a big attendance. Shaun is going to be working his magic on the grill again, so we need to get a good idea as soon as possible of numbers attending, in order to order the burgers, sausages etc. Would you please click this link and complete the mini response form, indicating numbers attending and whether you can bring a salad. Please just give your best guess, you can always change it later if needs be.
|Two Recent Club Rides: Here's a couple of photos from recent club rides. Shaun took a picture of the group who had just completed the ascension of the "Col de Coombe Gibbet" toward the end of the annual 100 mile ride. Mike and Rosie hosted a BBQ after the ride which, despite the rain, was enjoyed by all.|
|Jim snapped club members at the Seale Tea Room. All three groups arrived at the same time - a rare event - but fortunately there were more than enough cakes to satisfy the hungry riders.|
