Last Wednesday Ride 2019

From Bob D.

Today was the last Wednesday group ride for 2019, twelve members made it to the cafe stop arriving around 1115,having just sat down we were joined by Charlie Milhouse,an ex member who moved away three years ago.Charlie was just driving by having  just made a delivery when he saw the gateway blue train entering Puddle dock so decided to call in and join us.For those who dont him Charlie is a very experienced life long cyclist who was an asset to the club when he was with us and I was very pleased to see him again. Merry Christmases were wished all round as we split up for home which brings me the next items. As next Wednesdaqy is Christmas day the usual official midweek ride is cancelled and as the following Wednesday is New Years Day some  of us will be joining Jon L on his annual New Years Day leisure ride details of which will appear soon. I hope you will agree that the Wednesday group has enjoyed a very successful year with only one total cancellation in 2019, numbers varied from about a high of 20 in high summer down  to a low of around 3 on the worst mid winter days with most weeks averaging about 12, pretty good for a small club in my opinion.So merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all and hope to see you early 2020.
