Ex President Ron & Bondi Beach

It was good to see Ron looking well and attending the club room on Thursday night. He was clearly getting back his sparkle! He mentioned Bondi Beach and said he was surprised how small it was and it remminded me of my last trip there in November 2009. My impression was that the beach was rather large and the "Sheila's" even larger. I suppose it's all in the eye's of the beholder. See below!

Anyone interested in more pictures I would be happy to oblige! What's this got to do with cycling you may say well I was on my mountain bike at the time! Andy how about a Thursday evening off-road!

Gary Dodd Broken Arm?

Dear Jake,
I was out at the Vineries today and when eventually Daveb + 2 others arrived, Dave said that Gary had broken his arm! I am sure I can speak on behalf of the whole club and say how sorry we are to hear this! Is it the same arm as last time?
We all wish Gary a speedy recovery but tell him not to make a habit of it, it must affect his training schedule!

"A" Ride 7 Nov 2012

A memorable ride in more way than one. Thank goodness there was no cyclist being overtaken by this lorry around the South Holmwood Roundabout! The moral of the story never get caught on the lhs of a truck, always overtake on the rhs!

Brockham bonfire - not much left! Did anyone go?

I know that we are not supposed to self publicise but this is me with my Mark Roy Trophy which Terry had kindly bought to Cobham for me after it was engraved. Unfortunately I did not have a panier as I was travelling light on my Fixi and struggled up Ranmore! Ray however came to my rescue with a light back pack so I managed to get the trophy home!

It had been my intention to go to the Chequers at Walton on the way home as it was one of Jeff's days on, if you will excuse the expression but due to a misunderstanding between rides leader Ray & me we went to Banstead for tea instead of Fanny's Farm. My consolation at the Chequers was that I met the lovely Helen and as Jeff never turned up he missed out! The moral of the story stick with the Fixi's for they are the salt of the Earth (or was it the Dearth!)
