    I love this, Slinky.

    I can’t think why anyone wouldn’t enter.

    Well….except for the wolves

    I felt so inspired by Capt Pete’s post that I asked my wife to film me on my morning cycle to the paper shop.

    If I’m honest I don’t remember all the hairpin bends nor the massive crowd outside Noble’s newsagents but, as they say, the camera never lies. Shame she didn’t get any footage of me cycling back with the paper tucked under arm, I wonder what David Duffield would have made of that.

    This’ll be one of those evening rides for the Northern Dynamos will it, Capt?

    Actually, a dusk til dawn ride would be amazing, maybe rename the ride ‘Breakfast at Bessie’s’ and film it in artistic monochrome. The barmaid would provide a bit of glamour and maybe a love interest….

    Sounds amazing, mate. Bloody well done to you and Huw.

    Real shame about the Clover Train.

    Bloody Hell, Captain!! Good luck with that.

    Anyone who fancies a couple of hours rolling across the pan flat plains of South Pembrokeshire could meet at 9 in Bloomfield.

    I was considering something along the coast Amroth, Marros, (+/- Pendine and Laugharne), Llanddowror, Red Roses and home. Open to other ideas.

    Oh…., and I’ve heard a rumour that the rarely seen Valley Road crew may be making an appearance. Fresh from Wintering in the warmth of the Balearics, nicely browned and honed from the flight home.

    Good point, Captain.

    Maybe it should say ‘Anyone else, who doesn’t fancy hauling their asses to St. Davids to ride mountain after mountain in gale force winds…’

    Oh, … and you Colin, are you still going Mad Doig?

    Just a reminder about this tomorrow. Starts at 6, bring your bike, a turbo etc. There are four confirmed, Clover, Stumpy, Gman and Our Glorious Chairman. There’s probably room if anyone else fancies it, give Tom a ring in Pembs Bikes.

    Of course, Clover, the more the merrier.

    In addition to the champagne and caviar already mentioned, Pembrokeshire Bikes tell me they have managed to get hold of some locally sourced cheese made from the milk of the male lactating fruit bat colony presently nesting in Clunderwen. Something to look forward to with a fine glass of port and a Cuban cigar hand-rolled on Peter’s powerful thighs.

    It would be best if everyone brought their turbo to the session.

    6pm start for everyone, Wednesday 4th March. The session will take an hour and a half.

    See above for kit etc that you will need.

    The session is free…. well, free in monetary terms, Pembrokeshire Bikes will obviously own your soul afterwards.

    My bestubbled friend, there is nothing wrong with your riding, it is your thinking that you are struggling with. Look to the positives. There is not a hill in the land that I’ve seen beat you, so you are King of all of them. Also, the longer you take to cycle up the vertical challenges the more time you have to enjoy them. Myself and my cycling companion, Mr Lewis, celebrate the time we spend on these inclines discussing the perspective duality of good and evil and the hidden meanings in Leonard Cohen’s Suzanne. Think yourself lucky that you’re not one of the club’s mountain goats, because once you’ve won the CARTEN, bought the World’s most expensive bike and beaten everyone over the Bwlch then, really, there’s only one way you can go.

    If you’re not buying any of that, perhaps some red meat?

    Due, no doubt, in no small part to MatG’s tireless promotional work, the winter kit has sold extremely well. So well, in fact, that there are only four jerseys unsold in the whole World. We are unlikely to order any of this kit next year so if you want one, or think you may fancy one later, go and buy one now.
