Declan, Mark and Don rode the ‘Colourful Clumber’ 114km Audax on Saturday. They left Gravediggers Cottage at 5am and it was breathless and warm, when they arrived in Bolsover the temperature had dropped to 3C and the wind was already rising. Extra vests and windproof jackets were the order of the day and gloves were worn all day. A beautiful route through Clumber Park and into North Nottinghamshire and it wasn’t too hilly apart from the last hill, which was highlighted on the route sheet “climb up past old quarry”. It was alright for Declan as he was on gears but Mark & Don were on fixed.
We have pre orders of 7 items of clothing and 6 pairs of arm warmers, so were pretty close to being able to place an order – order needs to be 10 items of each, so now is the time to commit if there’s anything you need as this will probably be the last order place until possibly next summer.
Although John Thompson (organiser) said it was flat we did 800m of climbing, we were all on fixed Mark 73″, Declan 69″ and I was on 68″.
Below is the Junior BAR as of 14/10/2011.
Claims need to be in by 15/10/2011. I will wait until the end of the week for any that may be in transit.

I haven’t heard of anybody doing anything competitive, if you have perhaps you’d like to let me know.
Martin spent the weekend enjoying the Suffolk lanes in the glorious sunshine. On Saturday I joined Ferg and a group of fellow tricyclists for breakfast at the Water Park at Bramford, between Stowmarket and Ipswich. I caught an early train to Ipswich and meandered through Burstall, Elmsett and Flowton to face a good breakfast in the open air by the fishing lake. After eating and chatting for an hour or so we trundled across East Suffolk to Bildeston for lunch at the King’s Head, followed by a visit to Life-Cycle, the nearby cycle shop. Then Ferg and I rode through Wattisham to Stowmarket and the train to Norwich.
The following morning I packed my 1936 Raleigh in the car and picked up Dave Cannon and his post-office bike to head for Walpole and the Veteran Cycle Club meet (the Trudge) where refreshments were available as we browsed the various tables of jumble that people had brought. After a while, the first flush of trading had died down and Cally Calloman summoned us to follow him and his Ordinary on a jaunt around the lanes of High Suffolk. Three dozen cyclists set out on a wide variety of machines, including Dursley Pedersens, a tandem and various roadsters with the early morning chill gone. After 25 miles we arrived at Laxfield ‘Low House’ for lunch and plenty more discussion. Then back to Walpole for another session of trading, fuelled by tea and buns before we set off home after a lovely day in the glowing autumn.
