MILDENHALL CYCLING FESTIVAL

There was real summer weather and the organisers kindly placed the TA kraal right next to the food and drink providers.

If you haven’t seen it before, I commend Martin Badhams account and photos at:

TA EAST AGM

I seem to have mislaid my notes – but the AGM went ahead OK – we had just one member more than the required quorum and the Region’s business is continuing along the usual lines

 

Undoubtedly memories of those who made it there are dominated by hearing …first that Peter Faulks had had an accident on the way to the meeting …and then learning that one of his first thoughts on coming to in hospital was, in case we were short of a quorum at the meeting,  to set up a possible way of his voting at the AGM by proxy!

That is serious dedication for you

 

So – how is our member PETER FAULKS?

Recovering – but rather slowly, seems to be the summary.  His bruises have not yet gone, his ribs are still very painful and recovery has not been helped by getting infections in his waterworks and chest  (think of coughing with damaged ribs) not to mention his  wife falling down stairs. However he remains his sensible, positive self

Congratulations to IAN PIKE on his

TRIKE 50 in 1:58:55 in the CC BRECKLAND event on Saturday 2nd September.

This time included stopping on his second “lap” to retrieve his aero-bottle which had bounced out on his first time round.

There is a photo of Ian leaving the start in the report of the event in the CTT RACE REPORTS at:

ON3WHEELS FORUM – ADDRESS CHANGE

      The web address for the “on3wheels” forum has changed. The old address is still active but anything now posted there is not uploaded to the new forum.

                New forum address is:-

                https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/on3wheels/index.php

 Although independent of the Association, the forum is full of interesting stuff and many TA members subscribe to it ____________________________________________________________________________

Our friends in the TA MIDLAND REGION have this weekend  (September 9th & 10th)

STAN SPELLING AND JENNY NOAD CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND.

The entries look pretty good.

Organiser Harold Heyworth has kindly made the start sheets available to us, and they are (I hope) attached to this edition.
