Wye Valley Thank You

Post by Minter » Sun Oct 15, 2017 1:28 pm

Big thanks to Pirate and Franc for another great Wye Valley meet.

Pirates culnery skills get better every year!

Franc and Steve had recce'd some new routes which were just as good a challenge as the established devils stair case and tintern steps! I'm sure the video of the carnage will soon be available for all to see!

The Saturday meal and banter at the fountain inn were up to there usual high standard! Well at least the food was!!

Finally well done too everyone who made it, thanks for the club shop and Sportax shop purchases, now looking forward to Stu's SUSSEX Ride out in a months time..

Hope to see you all there!

:D

As I said on our FB group, I would also like to add my thanks. A great event as ever. Nobody killed by Simon’s cooking or on the trails! I thoroughly enjoyed my eco friendly 50km and appreciate my wife and dog being made welcome.

Its events like this that have become the life blood of the club and the flexibility of being open to all regardless of steed makes it diverse and fun.

I'll add my thanks to Pirate for organizing the weekend, providing food and beer, chopping the wood and keeping the fire going, then clearing up after we made a mess of the place.

Thanks also to Frank for keeping Pirate focused on the event. It certainly worked better keeping to the West of the Severn.

If you have not been to the Wye Valley weekend, then it's well worth the trip, even if you want to stick to the black stuff rather than tackle the mud and rocks.

A big thank you to all who turned up for another weekend of Green Lane mayhem. Once again the OMG Mummy did is work and knackered both bikes and riders :D :D .

Geoff was awarded this years Wye Valley Trophey for being an all round great bloke. We have an additional trophey for next year 'The Useless Tool'!! Watch out as someone will be awarded it!!!

You guys raised after expenses ÂŁ230 for the Scouts.

Hope to see you all and those who couldn't make it next year on the 12th October.

Here is the route taken by the road group, I think it was about 160KM. If anyone wants better quality image I can email it, although I should think only Ian, Mick and Jooles would be interested.

When I double click it, I get a larger version.
