The 2013 C2C Challenge will be June 8 & 9, convening at 0515 at the University car park on the Saturday morning, as per usual. I hope that lots of you who did it before will join those who are out for the first time and that we might have a convivial evening on Friday before grabbing a few hours sleep. You can get more details from www.cycle-challenge.co.uk.
What a start to 2013! I’m afraid I’ve been a fairweather cyclist so far this year and have hardly ventured beyond the roaring grate in my office. I’m delighted so many of you are thinking ahead, though: traffic on the site indicates that even though spring seems a million miles away, many of you are thinking ahead and making plans for later in the year. 2012 is already a fading memory, a complete fluke, an aberration in the planet’s sunny cycle. Either that or we’re in the shit.
I’d like to apologise for my Christmas offer of a monogrammed shirt, book and map with a £7.50 saving. I neglected to take the £7.50 off at the webshop’s checkout so anyone who has been short-changed should get in touch and I’ll refund you. I’ve continued the offer until March – this time remembering to do the sums – so why not plan ahead, get the C2C package and book those lovely B&Bs? Ward off the winter gloom…
