Evening Ride at Llandegla 22 July

Kevin C and son Jack rode the roller coaster Black trail at Llandegla for the first time on Wednesday evening. If you haven’t ridden these trails you don’t know what you’re missing.

When I’m 64…When I get older, losing my hair, will I still be riding my bike as fast as these fellas?

A perfect hot day and 13 of us set off to the Lock Cafe at Whitchurch. Nine of us got there. We worked out that excluding me and Jed (we’re the relative youngsters) the average age was 64. Amazing. The normal quality of banter was enhanced by Richard Heywood’s return to the fold. Richard, removing […]
