SCCU Annual Luncheon & Prizes 2013 - Rowfant

This was my first time to this lunch though I have been to similar for the VTTA at the same venue with similar meal. Above is a picture of all the prize winners present with Lisa the BAR Collator. Well done to all from the KPRC. 

Yours trully wishing I was wearing plus 4's and tweed and come part way by train and then Brompton from 3 Bridges! Quite a splendid sight. I rode my fixie from home but due to the very drawn out service & long wait for food got a lift back with Lisa to Junct.8 M25. Thanks a lot!

The President Rod Starmer congratulating all riders and officials/helpers for their efforts in promoting this years SCCU events. Ray Dare, who was there with Beryl got a particular mention for his amazing age related records this year. The president made a forward plea on behalf of Esther Carpenter for marshals and helpers at next years 24 Hr. Nat Champs which we will again be hosting. 21st/22nd June 2014 put this in your diary. Not sure what it clashes with &; I do remember what an horrendous night it was manning the village hall night stop and feeding the riders. Ann Bath won the ladies that weekend! I detect that there will not be the enthusiasm from KPRC next time I hope I am wrong and unless it turns out I have other commitments (like I'm riding) I will do my best to help. Sounds like it might class with BHF London to Brighton which I gave up years ago & it may clash with Dieppe Raid? Will have to check!

Sat and sun autumn rides

Now the clocks have changed we go into the winter rides list, which is the same as summer except the Ockham Bites is now The Vinerys Lower Bookham as its warmer. The sunday rides start at 9.30 to avoid any frost. This week we had a good turnout sat at Garcons farm, 16 I think. Dave, Lee, Nick and I did the sun ride to the new Cycle café in Esher. Giro. Lovely cakes and really nice coffee. They have locks if you need one! I would urge any of the members who fancy trying our rides to come along and make our club more sociable off season. Also we would like to see more coming down the club room at 9pm Green lanes Worcesterpark Athletics club.
