From the Editor

Well that’s Christmas over, the New Year a couple of days away, time to reflect on the past, the things that went well and those that did not, to consider plans for the future and to try new things.

In the past year the club has seen some changes, a change of name albeit small ( the dropping of association ), a change in the running of the Bike Night, the loss of two of our most committed members from the committee.

We have had some excellent events, the highlight of the year as always has to be the Bike Night, bigger and better than the previous year. We had some superb rides out, for me the best has to have been the “Lincs the other way” though I have had comment that the Wolds Bender was the best ride out, also vying for the top spot in my eyes was an under subscribed run to the SuperSausage (an ever so slightly damp run), we only seem to manage about seven or eight club members on most rides out, I wonder what the rest of you are up to, I wonder if we have something wrong in the way we organise the rides or perhaps where we go, if you have any suggestions that may help us improve the appeal of the rides out please get in touch.

Looking to the coming year, the club will have a presence at the Spalding Bike Show on the 21st and 22nd January, volunteers are always needed for the club stand. I understand that we will be manning a checkpoint for the National Road Rally on the 1st and 2nd July again volunteers are needed. The Boston Bike Night will take place on the 6th July as always volunteers are always needed. We always need people to lead rides out, do you know somewhere that might be of interest to other club members, are you prepared to lead a group of club members a merry dance to a new location, on a Tuesday evening or a day at the weekend or even one day in the week. We need new ideas all the time, this is your club, it needs you.
