Bell's Bike Ride

There seems to be a nucleus of people who'd be up for a social bike ride in memory of Mike so I thought I'd bite the bullet and come up with a proposal...

We'll need to get on and do it reasonably quickly while the weather has a chance of being favourable so I suggest the former Revival weekend (12/13 September). I guess the Sunday might suit people better and the roads should be quieter (most of them are very quiet anyway). We could start from Iain's workshop between Henley-on-Thames and Wallingford and do a route that would be suitable for all bike types - road, mountain, hybrid - with possibly a stop or two for refreshments.

WDYT? I'm happy to plan the route and lead.

Oooh good idea. I've got my first car event for years on the Saturday, it would be great to have a social on the Sunday.

Absolutely - we should get a good tow off you up the hills! Love that chainring, by the way.

So - Iain, me, Max and Zef so far. Keep the interest coming - it's all going to be about having fun. Nobody is going to be left behind.

...and perhaps a timely reminder for those who have not already done so to dig deep & give Mary some financial support for her bike ride next month?

Daniel & I are up for it - I'll mention it to Mike's sister Mary as she is training for a charity ride.

Sunday is fine by me. I was due to be at Le Mans that weekend.

Edit: Are we going to do this for a good cause too? How about the BMRMC?

Mary’s 110 mile charity ride is the day before around the same area, so may pop along if she’s able, as I’ve passed on the info.

They won't want you showing them up, Mary. Stand by the road, and criticise, much more fun.
