Sunday 22 May – Redhill

Not a bad little ride, but not without its dramas! Steve Hep made a welcome return, and we were also joined by Monica and Brad. Steve failed to live up to his ironman reputation, by falling off three times in the first fifteen minutes – until the rest of us worked out something that his hip had worked out the first time (his pedals were aggressively holding on to his shoes, eh!).

Given a complete lack of success with adjustment for the brand spanking new Time cleats, Steve gave up at Wakehurst Parkway. A very sad end (but he has guaranteed a return shot next Sunday).

Steve’s enforced absence gave Monica and Brad the chance to show that, indeed, they were the ironmen, and should be given the respect they deserve! Brad’s attack on the rock face that Richard stuffed last week was elegant and a joy to behold.

Brian was, as always and recent pneumonia bout notwithstanding, a living legend. And Doug was doing some fancy stuff (but being very careful to only do it when no-one was watching!). We *must* have the Bike Whisperer back as soon as possible, as the only person trustworthy enough to carry a camera to get some photos of Doug! Indeed, it will be very good to welcome Chris Hani back, given that he’s even more credible on that front…
