Forest Row Bike Club
2006 Uphill & Downhill Challenge: 28 January 2007 (only a few weeks late!)
Thought I had better do a report as
John is away sunning himself in the South of France, good luck to him I
Well here goes.
Thank goodness it was a reasonably
fine day, particularly after the past week. it was hopeful therefore
that we might have a reasonable number of members turning out, if only
to shed some of the excess of the Xmas holiday. Nevertheless I was still
amazed when I counted 16 riders including myself. It made me quite happy
to see them all as John had told me they only turned up in big numbers
when I was away, so there you are John: 16 riders and I have a
photograph to prove it. Of course I know they only turned out really to
see Jane's new bike as I did myself. Martha was really envious, in fact
I think we can say she was drooling.
To get back to the ride of the day
which was the 2006 uphill and downhill event: this was held in
Brickhouse Lane, Danehill and I am pleased to announce the winners
herewith. Before I do I should like to praise all the relatively new
members that turned out and joined in the fun. I hope they all enjoyed
it. Also we welcomed Martha's daughter Sally, who was game enough to try
us out and we all hope to see more of her in the future, as she would
seem to be a natural cyclist.

If you took part in a ride, why not write a report? The more florid the language, the more inflated the hyperbole, the more tumescent the innuendo, the greater your chance of winning the FRBC Prize for Original Plagiarism.
