On Yer Bike – Visiter Column – Article 82 – Ride of the Roses

Good morning fellow riders and readers thank you for all your great feedback on last week’s article, Blackpool’s ‘Ride the lights’. I would especially like to thank Mrs. Eunice Crabtree southports-new-centurians-geoff-ryan-and-glen-francis-photo-by-stu-blundell-copy(little mummy as she used to be known) for her reminiscence of Blackpool in the 50’s and early sixties. The fascinating tales of the folk that frequented Eunice’s bed & breakfast a few yards from the promenade together with the dancing, glittering ballrooms and show people that eventually became her lifelong friends were a delight. Eunice said she has always loved cycling riding to Ainsdale from her home town of St Helen’s to enjoy a picnic on the beach with her sister. Nowadays she enjoys riding her indoor exercise bike daily while watching the birds feed in her garden in Marshside chapeau!

Also this week new Southport CC riders Geoff Ryan and Glen Francis have completed there first 100 mile rides, whilst taking part in the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity’s ‘Ride of the Roses’ ‘ride. Well done guys. In the same event the mile munching madmen Stu Blundell and Chris Blake have completed another epic 100 miles not too dissimilar to the official route and are halfway to raising £200 toward the cancer charity. If you wish to give these good humoured gents a cash raising boost then please follow their link http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Stu-Blundell.
On to other news and this week Southport CC have been gathering their youth section together to thank the Ben Gautrey Foundation for their fantastic support having each received a classy race top to keep them all motivated and smart see photo. Also news from the club is that Isabelle Mckinnon has SONY DSCwon herself a Dolan frame after being chosen as the youth’s most improved rider by the Southport Club Committee. Isabelle has this year competed in all but two of the weekly Litherland Circuit Races and has showed great stamina, tenacity and skill in securing third place overall in her age category. Club secretary and youth coach Ken Beck says that Isabelle has fast become a rider of great skill and poise and he is looking forward to seeing her continue to grow into a great ambassador for women’s cycling of the future.
