2014 is upon us the Tour Down Under is on the horizon and Nick Bleazard has even dusted off his bike and been on a bike ride, this can only mean one thing: a new cycling season!
To get everyone in ship shape there are still regular spinning sessions happening on a Tuesday and Friday evenings, if you are interested contact Neil our glorious leader.
Out with the old and in with the blue! Andy “Armani” Smith has been working on designing a new kit. One of the design briefs being remove the unflattering moon to draw the eyes away from Ray’s stomach! A new kit also means all the new members to the club will have the chance to get suited booted for the new season.
This morning Heather, Jim, Steve Powers, Nick and Ray met for an icy blast to the coast.
Deciding to head to Hornsea on the main roads to avoid the thrills and spills of icy corners the intrepid gang rode at a quick pace in glorious sunshine. From the Whitecross roundabout they headed through Leven and Bransburton at a reduced speed to allow everyone to catch their breath. From Bransburton the gang headed towards Atwick via Bewholme along some roads that can only be decided as frosty.
Arriving at Hornsea with some frosty extremities the Knights were all ready for a hot drink and a bite to eat to warm themselves up. Within 5 minutes of being inside the Floral Hall a collective sigh was exhaled by the Knights as Ray had already seen someone he knew and was outside talking to them.
By the time the coffee had been drunk, feet had been warmed and fingers defrosted the roads had (as predicted by young Nick) defrosted and all that remained was for a heads down blast back to Tickton, Beverley and Walkington bathed in glorious January sunshine. By the end of the ride the gang were all in agreement that they had seen the best of the sunshine, had a good blast and piles off fun.
