This post is really a tribute to the cycle clubs' oldest member. On Saturday it was his birthday, so he organised a 60 mile ride near his home town of Leominster and the surrounding villages. A dozen members turned out to celebrate and ride with him. Not only did Mike lead for the whole 60 miles but he also set the pace and kept us all to it. There's no hanging around with Mike and this ride wasn't a gentle wander around the lanes. We stopped off for lunch at the airfield where he flys his glider and on flying days he usually rides his motorbike to the airfield.
Also in the picture is his wife Ann, its their 50th wedding anniversary next week and Mike was 78 on the 31st. May.
What a role model.
