POST SEASON SOCIAL 23RD AUGUST 2012 - MIDLAND PUB
We are having a post season social to mark the end of the Hemel evening TT season. The Midland Pub has been booked again for 7.30pm.
See the forum thread for more details:
To drown our sorrows of horrible dark nights I've planned a trip to Tring Brewery to raise our spirits on Wednesday 9th November. Sorry it's a school night but I couldn't get any other night, all booked up!
There are currently 16 riders - 15 from the club - riding around the alps this week on a trip organised by Tony Mullen.
In between some riding of the bike and eating & drinking I thought I'd do a little report each day - like a blog - on the club forum.

The Event web page has been opened up. Come back regualrly for updates as I intend to update the list of entrants as I get them.
I should point out that I will be away for a week so updates may be after that!
This Sunday (26 June) sees the first of the clubs open time trials, a 25 mile event held on the F13 course based upon the A41 between Bicester and Aylesbury.
A smallish field but good quality and a good turnout of Hemel riders - 13. A record 5 Hemel women ride too - I am fairly certain we have never had such a large turnout from the Hemel girls before (and a few are missing)!
The following was sent out earlier this week as a newsletter to all who have signed up for it - if you didn't get it but want it then click on the big button on the right hand side of the home page now!
