The not club run(!)

I’m not writing about the club run today, as I wasn’t actually on it(!) Setting out this morning after the weather forecasts for today, I was part delighted and partly in some trepidation of the day. The delight came at heading to Hartford. It was like riding an e-bike on full chat, with a monster […]

Cycling is tiring. Short run, 06/01/2...

It’s been a while since I’ve been on a full Sunday run, so I set out with some trepidation. I needed to get some miles in (but had at least done some warming up over the past weeks using Zwift to make sure that I didn’t make too much of an idiot of myself!). A […]

Tittesworth with some friends

Unfortunately I do not have the time this week for a proper report on the long run… Very briefly, the run heading to Tittesworth, I ignored the advice to avoid Congleton and then Gun Hill as both were supposed to have blockages. Instead I thought we should take the ‘suck it and see’ approach. Paddy […]

The great bacon adventure of 2018

Edmund Hillary, Ferdinand Magellan, Scott, Shackleton, all great adventurers, all lovers of a bacon sandwich. Add Keen to that list. For today’s inspirational, Boy’s Own style adventure was lead by none other than the great fool himself. It must be said that it was entirely by default as no one else wanted to be lumbered […]

A wet and windy Augember day

If this had been a November weekend it would have been viewed as mild but a bit wet. With it being an August day however I am sure the weather was perceived as a lot worse than it actually was. Does that make sense? In fact it was rainy. And windy. Rainy and windy, a […]

Club run meeting point Sunday 17th June

Hi, Due to hundreds/thousands of people attending a sport and music festival this weekend. We have been asked if we can meet somewhere else this Sunday. We will be meeting outside the shops on Chester Road, Hartford. The shops just up from Hartford church. Please can you let anyone you see know please.

Lies, lies, lies and more lies

My Mum, bless her, has bad osteoporosis, she is shrinking by the day and has been doing so for years and years. Nearly 4 years ago my elder sister insisted that, as Mum’s condition was not good, we should all get tested while we were still young enough to give the professionals time to sort […]

Meeting point 22nd April

Hi, For one week only we will be meeting in a different location. There is a very large event taking place at the rugby club. We will be meeting opposite the COOP at Hartford shops on Chester Road.

Big butties and badgers, and cycling

Thought I’d better drag my backside out of bed and onto  bike for a change, so I did. The usual suspects at the club, and a new face, out with us to see what this club cycling lark is all about. We were to ride a nice, relatively easy short ride to Dunham Massey, Derek […]

Prees. (Never trust a man with a load...

Those of you that have had the misfortune to read any of my previous meandering missives will be aware that I have harped on in the past about club runs staying together and everyone looking after each other. So it is that I apologise unreservedly to the poor soul that we dropped on Norley Hill. […]

Llanberis 2018. A game of two halves.

Well, if there is one thing for sure, it is that you cannot predict the British weather far in advance. It was a cold start to the weekend. Various shivering bodies turned up at the club, muttering in huddles about what was to come. All was well as they set off, and all the way […]
