The website

When I took over the website it needed hosting. This was done thanks to the to the generosity of Section members Peter and Dot Jones who hosted the site on their server DJ Automation Engineering Ltd


For practical reasons DJ Automation can no longer host the site and I've therefore now moved it over to my server. I would like to acknowledge the contribution of both Peter and Dot, their support allowed us to keep on the net and helped the section to grow accordingly. Sadly Peter passed away but Dot still continued to help us, donating a really good projector that we use regularly for talks and presentations in the club-house.


For all of this the Section would like to say a heartfelt "Thank you", very much appreciated.

 

The Summer Saunter or rather the weather was the complete opposite of last years' &emdash; wet on arrival and dry for the run.
An unexpected road closure meant an impromptu change of route which the 'Follow-my-leader' route-marking coped with well. Why 'Follow-my-leader'? No routecard as the intention had been to use the 'Drop-off' system but this system doesn't work too well with just five riders.

The bright sunshine confused not only the technology of my camera but also the ignition system of my 'bike. Thanks for the push chaps.
