25 rides out in the sunshine on Sunday on the three club rides. Thanks To Paul Johnson, Simon White and Dave Cox for leading...some vast cycling knowledge and experience in those three names, eh?

...and there you go, I came through a full Monday post without using the word 'volunteer'...DAMN!! Failed again... :x

Anyway, this week's rides should all have a theme as El Presidente is leading the C-ride and El Chairmante is leading the A-ride, so how about you either have to be a Villa fan or a Beacon member to lead the B-ride this week...

This week's rides are:

A: Coalport YHA Café - Phil Richards
B: Evesham - Phil Elwell
C: Lavender Hall (using this route) - - Simon Turner

Very sorry to mess people around, but a client wants me to do a job that will involve working most of the weekend. So I'm afraid that I'm going to have to cry off leading Sunday's C run. I'm happy to lead on a later date this quarter instead. The next Sunday that I'm available is 1 December.

Weather looks decent on Sunday, so as it closes for the winter next weekend (I checked), this Sunday's A-ride will be to Coalport YHA Café, using something like this route...

35 miles there, 35 miles back. Clocks go back this weekend, so an extra hours sleep for everyone...woohoo. I'll retain the 09:15 start

Please can we have a B-ride and C-ride leader please. Please note, that if no one responds to this request, I have definitely won the 'Most Ignored Beacon Member for 2019'. This will be my 100th message that no has read or responded to. I am so proud. When presented with this trophy, it is customary to look the other way, and talk amongst yourselves... :D Good job, I am thick-skinned.

Ride in your wetsuits tomorrow. The roads out here in the sticks are treacherous with flooding and the EA are suggesting that conditions will not improve until after the weekend. I'll be taking my snorkel just in case.

...and in the A-Run today to Coalport were, in alphabetical order:

Sir Ken Dodd
Paul Johnson
Neil Lynch
Neil Orchard
Phil Richards (Leading)
Nick Shenton
Lee Spiers
Vince Tennant
Philip Whiteman
John Williams
Andy Wrightson

A funny old day, beautifully sunny, puddly and wet under-tyre, with a humdinger of a chain snap, followed almost immediately by a flat, saw the ride break up as people needed to get home to wrap their Christmas presents. All returned safely after splashing through a huge puddle that reached the chainset, accompanied by mean looking crocs at the roadside.

Thanks all for a fun day!
