And yea the villagers did not understand the power of the magic of the yellow tights (nor indeed just how randomly vindictive they could be). A very large crowd assembled at the rugby club this morning. Much hilarity and ribbing was endured by one poor rider who had previously worn distinctive legwear. That over with, we […]

Wrinklies Christmas Dinner

Far from the wet and wind, Wednesday brought a breeze and some clear watery sunshine for the traditional Wrinklies Christmas Dinner run. Those of us in our youth (me especially), were not worried by taking a day off and trying to lower the average age a bit. We met at Hatchmere, and took off in […]

In search of Dagfields

On my arrival at the club this morning it was evident a discussion had been taking place as to the whereabouts of Dagfields. What was a Dagfield? Had it moved? Was it friendly? Was the plan to capture one? We may never know. Conversation briefly turned to my yellow tights Alan being particularly envious (to […]

1953

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there. Sunday morning was cold and bright. Knowing that the long run was liable to be a short run I set the alarm early with the intention of getting an extra hour in. Sense prevailed however when I saw the thick frost and imagined the […]

Loggerheads with much perspiration an...

Saturday night was the last night of the play my wife has been in, ‘Last of the Summer Wine’, not described by reviewers as, ‘a towering, emotional, epic, triumph’. Paula was excellent though. The play finishing was important (to me) as it meant that for the first time in ages I was able to go […]

Delamere off-road 5th Nov. 2016

Matthew and Andy Beswick couldn’t make it as they were on course clearing duty for next Saturday’s cyclocross at Greenbank. Fantastic autumn colours on a bright, crisp morning. We set off up Old Pale […]
