View from Brickendon Village Hall


This was not the night for standing around at the usual point by the tennis court on the approach to the village green. The journey to and from Brickendon was marked by downpours but there is usually some who wish to ride in conditions when most would not consider it feasible. As I was thinking of heading back for home, hardy NRers appeared, the rain relented, the sun briefly showed it was still in the heavens so five brave riders were sent on their way from the old start/finish point at the Village Hall. Bob Bolton, a local triathlete, made his debut. I forecast a "27" but he narrowly beat that with a time of 26.58. All rode well. The evening was very enjoyable thanks to Andy Hadfield who provided liquid refreshments and to Dan Ryan who showed his culinary skills with home made flapjacks and sausage rolls. Andy is getting married to Sarah next weekend so congratulations and good wishes go to them from the Club. All present agreed it was an evening well spent in the company of friends and clubmates. I did not do a head count but twenty or so were present in the Hall.
