Help For Heroes Ride 28th April 2013

Richardson's Rumble 2013

It was kinda at the limit of what any of us (left to right: Darren, Paul, Robin, Chis, Kev) want to do on a bike. Got up at 6.30 on a Sunday, for a start! Then looked out of the window and saw snow on the cars and on the grass, but not on the road, so that meant no excuses (under severe peer pressure of being called a whimp). Cold, wet and windy, but we all managed it. There is never any choice, unless you want to turn back, which we saw 6 or so people do.

Revised date: Sunday 28th April Spring Ride / Help4Heroes

Dear All (please also pass this on to your friends),
In support of Nigel's Help for Heroes appeal (see below), we plan to do a spring ride to Cambridge City Cemetery on Sunday, 28th April. The idea is to raise money for Help4Heroes, so the charge will be £10 per adult and £2 per child under 16. Any additional money you can raise through your own sponsorship will, of course, be most welcome.
We want to stay together as a group, so you can be sure of a gentle ride.

Alpine Adventure - Joux-Plane

Swallowed hard and went for the Joux-Plane yesterday! After the Cat. 1 Col de Colombiere yesterday, this was a really daunting challenge - Hors de Categorie or too steep for a Deux Chavaux to travel up.

Not incident free as Phil blew a tyre (not a tube, a tyre) about half way up so we did some bike juggling when we others were on our way back down so that Phil could finish the climb on Paul's bike while the rest of us went to fetch the trailer.

 

Alpine Adventure Part Deux, 1st day

Robin, David, Phil (from Fleet) and Paul's (shown here in the centre of Chamonix - nice of the locals to turn out to meet us in such high numbers) turn for some Alpine pain at the hands of Les.

This is what we managed after a morning flight to GVA and transfer to Les Houches:

Just a small preparation for what is to come

 

More tomorrow - if we return!
