Excellent turnout for the 2nd Sunday & Novice Ride on a cold,frosty and, in places, icy morning last Sunday. Twelve brave souls followed Rudolf's blinged-up bike on a roughly 18 mile ride including Pete Holley on his magnificent tricycle! In fact whilst the rest of us where gingerly feeling our way around Pete was of course in no danger of hitting the deck - provided of course he maintained the incredible level of concentration required to steer the beast! New boy Juhana was the only one to come off - a tricky uphill patch of black ice catching him out! Well done to all the novices for getting around unscathed - a tribute to Joan's bike handling skills training?

And on the subject of Joan and training - see how I linked that? - this Saturday'sly business as usual run is an off-road perambulation in Ashdown Forest so you'll need appropriate footwear and Santa hats or other Xmas decorations! I believe coffee and cake at Annie's maybe be on offer at the end of the morning? Sadly I'll not be joining you as a basic H&S infringement has left me nursing a damaged back this week! If I caught anyone at work using a beer crate as a work platform I'd have some strong words to say so why did I do it to attempt a repair to the shed roof in my garden?

Don't forget there is no Core session on Sat 27 but otherwise its mostly business as usual over the holiday period. Please make sure you have entered the first event in the 2015 WGP - the Vale Gallop on Sunday 25 January 2015, details on Sports Systems website

For those who haven't renewed yet - there is now just 2 weeks left to renew your membership with the discount! Use code REN15 on the renewal page (under Members Area, Membership Renewal on the web site - www.egtri.club) to get Standard Membership for just £33.

Think that's all?

As I don't do cards I'll take the opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and an injury-free and successful racing New Year!
