Jake's Winter Warmer ride atracted a bumper turnout of over 20 riders on Christmas Eve. 15 went offroad with Simon to coffee at Seymours Garden centre, Stoke D'Abernon, the remainder were led by Ian Burt to all meet up eventually.
Next ride: New Years Eve from the same start ie 10am Horton Park.

American supper this Thursday down the clubroom.
Come early, before 10pm!
Don't eat a full roast dinner just before you come to club
Do bring something along - food, not much, just something.
Hopefully I'll see you all there and we can talk about posting to this blog and next season's plans.

Off road option lead by Simon.

At the clubroom on Thursday December 8th we enjoyed a slick and interesting presentation by ‘Yellow Jersey Adventures’. A small group headed by Tony Costick and Andy, plenty of fine views and climbs were shown covering most of the major cols used in the Tour de France. We are invited to join them on their next holiday in the Pyrenees 1-15 July 2006. Camping & moving on; luggage carried, food provided, covering around 100 miles per day!

Also, talking of Champions Night. Ann and Ray have medals to collect following their rides in this year's National Championship 100, does anyone want to go and keep them company. Let Andy know VERY soon if you are interested. Information is well hidden on the CTT website, look under "News" and then some...... Lisa
I think the easiest thing will be to keep the handbook list here, so:
TonyT, Joe, Lisa, Pete, Si & Jen, Florence, Frank C, Ron - 8 so far
In the meantime:
"I have 3 paperback books brought as a bundle that I was about to throw out, however, if anybody is interested let me know and you can have them:
Lance Armstrong ‘It’s not about the bike’I expect most people have read this one already, confirms everything you know about him already – Great athlete, not much of a of a person
Flying Scotsman ‘The Graeme Obree Story’
Great read, if you think you have had crap season, this is for you, puts my punctures into perspective
Willy Voet ‘Breaking the Chain’ Drugs and Cycling the true story
I had this book for ages and could not be bothered with it, then I picked it up and could not put down. Fortunately Richard Virenque has retired otherwise I could not watch him ride without laughing
If you are interested in any of them or all of them let me know together with your address and I will post them to you."
I'm not going to post Tony's email address, as I'm being deluged with enough spam due to email addresses being available on the website. Anyone want to email Tony, let me know and I will send you his address. Club members and persons known to me personally only.
Jakes Winter Warmers starting at Horton Country Park at 10am every Saturday are attracting a group of around a dozen riders on a regular basis. A coffee stop at Wisley Lake open café seems to be a good formula as the slower group takes a shorter route and the off road riders can enter via the woods and the telegraph tower

Simon Mitchell continued his South London Roller League campaign with a fine effort at the South Eastern RC club room on Thursday 24th November, completing his fifth win in the six round series, gaining maximum points so far, in doing so he established a new 500m Vets record for the SERC venue with a time of 21.58 beating the previous time by Paul Tunnell Addiscombe CC of 22.67 set up in 2003.
The final night is at the Addiscombe club room on Wednesday 30th November.

Also, on the evening of Thursday December 8th Tony Costick of the Hounslow will be visiting the Clubroom to speak to the Clarencourt. He will be giving a presentation about a trip he is putting together to the Pyrenees at Tour de France time next year. Cycling and camping - it went very well this year apparently.
If anyone is interested in this then they are also welcome to attend.

Simon plans to submit the real order soon - the initial batch was just to see how it all came out. Sadly the supplier did not get everything right, as we feared, and have left their own logo in opposition to the Phoenix badge on the front of the tops - as well as moving it to the base of the centre pocket at the back. Contact Simon if you want to see any of the initial batch in the flesh, as it were.
Now is the time to make the decision if you want any of the new design for the start of the 2006 racing season.
