5 Minute Forum 8th June
- Bryan Stout said a few words about his ride to Amsterdam in aid of the London Cycling Campaign and we passed round the glass for donations for which he then thanked members.
- We also passed round the glass for the Drops Cycle Team.
- Richard Collins gave an interesting talk about The Thames Tideway Project – the new sewer system being built in London under the Thames to accommodate the heavy rainfall we are now experiencing in the London area.
- Erick Rowsall – our Pro in the Peleton – finished the An Post Ras 20th on G C with one cracked rib and one broken rib! He is looking to ride the Beaumont trophy and National Championships later this month.
- Club Jersey sales are going well. In fact Matt Holmes tried one on as a nod to his success in the Nocturne the weekend before – to a round of applause from Club members.
- “Your Choice” this month asked for suggestions as to who should next be invited to sign the Golden Book. Good to see members’ humour in good fettle (Donald Trump and Lady Gaga!); food for thought (Boris Johnson, Lance Armstrong, David Cameron); but with serious contenders to consider (Bradley Wiggins, Phil Liggett, Alex Dowsett, Stuart Benstead, Lizzie Armistead, Nicole Cooke and Knocker).
