Sunday 5 July 2009

For want of a better plan, let's meet at Keighley roundabout for 08:30 on Sunday morning and make a route from there.
I've heard that Robin wants a long ride maybe over Tatham Fells. Others (Steve, Neil, me) want to be back home for mid afternoon - although I expect that it is only to watch the Tour and the Tennis final on TV, rather than for some DIY or gardening. So maybe we set off to Setlle and then make separate tracks from there. Ian

Three Peaks Cyclo Cross Update

Entry form back on website but only until Sunday evening!


Birthday Party

I'm having a party for my 40th at the Cat I'th Well in Wainstalls, Saturday 18 July 2009. Free BBQ from 5pm, live music from 7pm. More details in the next Beak newsletter. Let me know if you can make it! Ian
It is amazing what you find search the web. This photo of the pub (from here) dates from around 1924. Some of the pickled onions on the bar have a similar vintage. Most of the customers are slightly newer.

Last Sunday I had a chance meeting with two old friends - Paul Hickey and Paul Gower who I hadn’t seen in years, it took me back to my youth and wonderful memories of a time when I was far fitter than I am today!

30 years ago as a young lass, I joined the Condor Road Club and met some fantastic people and enjoyed wonderful club runs, not to mention some very boozy exploits! Character building is the term I think that best serves this part of my life!

Cycling has always been a part of my life though I am often a spectator these days rather than a participant.

I now live in Guiseley, am married and have a 14 year old son who despite my best efforts prefers football to cycling.

I run a charity called Andrea's Gift which raises funds for brain tumour patients and research in Yorkshire, and each May, we have an annual 65 mile cycle ride from Wetherby to Scarborough. I will let you know the date for 2010 and maybe some of you will join us, it would be fantastic to see you all again.

For my own pursuits, in 2005 I attempted Letape du Tour in the Pyrenees with a bunch of doctors I work with on the charity. Sadly I was time eliminated before the major climb - col d'Aubisque so I was unable to claim my medal, but it was an amazing event.
