The buzz of the ride when not only the hills sting….fun on the run with West London Cycling

Bike Rides and Bee Stings are not commonly associated events, but Hang Pang and Baz Mistry both got stings and were saved by the gallant Dr Martin Whellans, who had to pull the stinger out with medical precision. A totally unexpected incident on this sunny autumn day, which was glorious. Also unexpected was Ray King’s puncture, literally moments after he said, ‘I don’t get many punctures’….. Robert Melton was on hand to enjoy watching someone else fix a puncture this week for a change.

Another busy ride and coffee / cakes / bacon and sausage sandwiches at the Rowans Garden Centre accompanied by a delicious topping of cycle chat garnished with banter and biketech sauce.

NEXT WEEK … a brand spanking new ride, Fantastic Voyage Lakeside
