SPRING WEEKEND at the COMET HUT
I have the following message from Mike Keen:
STOP PRESS….. Mike’s Home Made Bitter will be on tap at the Spring Bash… It’s being barrelled up tonight.
Also – Good news on the approach track:
…. Currently, the Hut path is in reasonable condition, so that we can drive down.
If you live in the Essex/Herts part of our Region, but cannot spare the whole weekend…do consider if you might be able to join us for lunch on Saturday or Sunday:

Wonder if anyone has seen “THE BIDLAKER”?
Described as “A new exclusive on-line journal on cycling history”?
It was due to have been launched on Feb 1st.
It is advertised on the Website of the Bidlake Memorial Trust, no less, as part of a £25 package of membership benefits of The Bidlake CC.
Looking back to the next previous News item on the Website, I was interested to see a set of photos from the Bidlake Reunion Party by Kevin Fairhead – (I presume that’s the Hounslow & District Wheeler who was second in West Suffolk Whs 12 Hour (254mls) in 1970 when I was 15th (224) and William Sargeant won the TA East event with 209mls).
In particular a photo of Frank Colden at the party – he who was BBAR in about 1962.
SPRING 25 at BRESSINGHAM
I know that Les Young, winner of the recent South-WEST TA 25, is entered – please get your entries in – closing date next Tuesday (17th) or very shortly afterwards.
Best Wishes to you all
