    Well this was how it all started :whistle: (see pics below) A fantastic get together arranged by our own @Mrs Mint, thank you Pauline for arranging the pre-cruise meal and all the hassle that goes with it, you are a star xx

    The cruise, well it was a great day, the weather held out (sort of) the leaves played their part and there wasn't to many cyclists on the road :rolleyes:
    Great to see some new faces on the Wye Valley cruise @Roalfie @Lazzzydog @TaffDaddy @colb @Dalek @Mr C and passengers (sorry if I have missed anyone) plus all the usual culprits that would turn up to the opening of an envelope :D:D

    Just a few mentions of extra thanks
    My sis Sandra and partner Mick that led Group 1, it was her first and she was terrified, she did a sterling job xx
    Gary @mid life crisis and Anne for leading Group 2 (your turn for a cruise next mate:thumbsup:)
    Steve @Low Rider Steve @Bozzy and Dave @Mint for being sweepers Many thanks :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I will email both the Anchor and the George (Sue & Christina) our thanks (I think the lunch went down well)

    Footnote:
    Its not the organisers that make a good run out its the people that travel to, then take part, then travel home again that makes the day so great, soooo a huge thanks to all that came and supported the day THANK YOU :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Niall
