This weekend’s events

I hope you are all now well prepared for a strenuous weekend. On Saturday it is the Phil Hampton Memorial Ride, organised by North Hampshire CTC, starting in Medstead at 10am.  Phil lived in Farnborough, was a keen member of Audax UK, and often rode with us, being a key member of the WSDA team that was highly placed in the CTC’s DAs’ Touring Competition:  9th in 1989, 2nd in 1990 and winners in 1991-3.  Sadly, Phil was killed in 2002 by a lorry driver who was under the influence of drugs.  The entry fee for this ride in his memory is a donation of at least £5 to the Cyclists’ Defence Fund.  There is a choice of routes, 30 or 50 miles, see  I am planning to do the 50, which ranges over the scenic Hampshire lanes to the south, out to Bishops Waltham and Hambledon.  A treat!

Paul Holmes

Helen Juden writes: We are very sorry to report that Paul Holmes passed away on 8 December from the effects of a brain tumour. Paul started cycling with Notts CTC in the 1970s and even as a schoolboy was known for his affection for a traditional style of riding, loving the simplicity of fixed wheel. Later he studied economics at Durham University, where he was a contemporary of Kevin Mayne, former CTC Director. Paul moved to Surrey and took up a teaching post at Godalming College. He rode with the Hardriders and was fond of exploring the UK by bike, staying in Youth Hostels. Approaching retirement, Paul was looking forward to becoming a volunteer seasonal Youth Hostel warden. Sadly, his plans were thwarted by the incidental discovery of a brain tumour affecting his balance. After surgery he experienced some improvement and was able to meet up with one or two

Today’s Woking Midweek Ride (30 November)

In view of the bitterly cold conditions, the consequent risk of ice, and the patchy freezing fog, I have decided to delay the start of today’s ride until 10.45.  We will then head straight to lunch, with no coffee stop, and plan to be back well before dark when the temperatures are again set to plummet.  It should be sunny but still very cold through the middle of the day. An e-mail has been sent to all those who have signed up for announcements regarding this group.
