Ups and Downs

In which
Mr Suffern returned astride a new orange beast ,I think an Ibis is a sort of wild deer but given that Hugh has an ebay addiction I assume it wasn’t wild dear . He did his bit for wildlife today freeing a little bird , I thought 4 guineas was a bit steep for fee , he assured us it was a considerable discount .(I hope you all appreciate the musical reference) .

John (SCO) returns from two weeks of gluttony and is correspondingly speedy .

COC conquered the switchbacks despite protestations about use of alternative route ..jealosy is a terrible thing.

Cormac developed a falling down disease and Robbie is investigating how a rolator could be attached to his bike.

Dan fell off at least once , Eamon failed to get his heart rate over 100.

Kenny reports a clear round on castle bog to wall , but as suffern was his witness we have to be cautious with believing him

Herself had a sick note , as did DOC L who is as we speak in bicycle DT’s .

I fell off after the wall which is why the route looks a bit peculiar on map .GPS switched off for a bit .

Creaks and Cramps

A long roll of sick notes today , Scullion was away teaching the French how to drink wine , Doc L was on Babysitting duties , Mr Hull was telling Kenny McKinstry where to go .John SCO , PS and New Paul were AWOL .
The two and only Horse and Hound had threatened a royal visit to display the new wheels but cried off at the last moment . A better offer no doubt.

Ross and John returned for a rare visit , Robbie returned and regretted it! Mr Power had the audacity to turn up on a poorly serviced anthem which creaked its way around , this from the man who will not tolerate creaking in any other bikes . COC and Herself made up the posse for a dart up to fiddlers /viewpoint/ stone / style / knockshee/ formal. Poor Robbie hadnt been out in a while and how he loved that climb up formal not to mention the tech section to Formal . He was unable to cure his own cramp but soldiered on .Work needed for Thriller !!!

No Rossi in sight today .
