Several members turned out today for the annual Christmas Bike Ride . Thanks to everyone for making it a cracking day out. No ice this year, just plenty of mud ! Top Santa outfits, great banter & fun & games in the pub before we headed home.
A few brave souls from Valley Hill turned out today to run the Percy Pud, a 10k race in the Loxley valley with a Christmas pud at the finish. Wind and rain didn't dampen the spirits, and some excellent times were posted. A special mention goes to Ash as he was running for his Gran who sadly passed away at the weekend " Well done Ash " and thanks for the cup of tea.
Well done too, to Dan who stood in the pouring rain waiting for his dad (Ian D) to come in.
Much to Dan's amusement, his dad was beaten by a camel !
A very civilised starting time of 11AM(clocks going back=an extra hour in bed) BUT this did not allow for Ian(Gs) powdering of his nose! Thanks to Bev who alerted the starter that we were missing but i had the fastest warm up ever.This proved a plus as the course was three and a half miles which is a bit of a sprint distance for me.
The race organised by Kimberworth Striders and part of the KMRT series was £4 well worth spent as the hot buffet in the pub afterwards was excellent.Bev got 1st lady over 45 and a bottle of wine(she declined the choccys!) and Ian & I also came away with a bottle of wine each from the raffle.3x VHR & 3 bottles of wine= result
