Mad March Indeed

5:30 am alarm and a howling wind outside – what were we thinking of? Forecast wind speeds of 25 gusting 45mph are normally an automatic “not-on-the-tandem” decision, but somehow we were signed up together for the Mad March Excursion 100km event and ready to give it a go.

Ed’s Mince Pie and Mulled Wine – 4 December 2016

4 December, 2016
Starting from Caharrack
Organiser Eddie Angell

eds2016checkin

Eddie’s ride is always a winter treat, and this year we were blessed with dry weather – and a keen wind to sharpen the appetite.

As usual, the ride was more or less fully booked. 77 riders made it to the start, and every one completed the ride with valid brevet – well done all of us!

Greed and good spirits tend to keep the pace lively on the way out to the control and this year we had the wind (mainly) helping us as well. We got a bit of buffeting on the tandem, so knew it would be essential to refuel well before the return.Higher Lanner Farm Control

As in previous years, huge thanks are due to Wendy for the warm welcome and legendary refreshments. The spread at the farm was imposing, varied and delicious as usual, with pasties, sausage rolls, scones and cakes all temptingly displayed. The collection for Parkinson’s raised £173.

A second welcome back at the arivée from Eddie and from the kitchen, where Simon and Liz were serving mulled wine and mince pies – a happy end to the event and a fitting start to the festive season.

Thanks to Eddie for once again organizing a splendid ride, and to helpers Peter Hansen, Simon Jones, Liz Rayne and of course Wendy Wallis.
