Hi Crabwood. It’s been a while since the last newsletter. So, I thought it was time for another one. After a nice long hot dry summer the weather has finally gone back to normal, combined with not many hours of daylight it really is a fun time to go out on your bike.

      The club events went well this year with Pat, Colin, Claire and myself running 2 events each. This worked very well and spread the workload around. How-ever number of entrants was quite low, with one event just having two CCC riders. 

      The club trip to Le Tour took place this year after a two-year absence. We had a very hot week in the Pyrenees. The climbs were long and tough (or am I just past it?). With the Peyresourde finishing me off with the temperature on my Garmin hitting 45C. We all had a good time in a really nice location (well done Claire)

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Bah Humbug.  Alan.
