Winter blues

Beneath the paper sunWe’ve reached that time of year when little velo enthusiasts scuttle off into their caves, light a fire and hibernate until slightly before the summer equinox; their hairy unshaven legs put away for winter to wither and gather dust .

Such events don’t need to be the norm.

Sure, there’s the odd day where it’s simply not safe to go out on two wheels – we have got some common sense and value our safety – but it’s all good to go when there’s no ice on the roads.

We can dress in a manner to counter the cold (to some degree) and it’s always enjoyable to see one’s clubmates turn into frozen lollipops before our very eyes. The company of others is wonderful for taking one’s mind off the inclement weather conditions and helps motivate us to keep moving so we haven’t seized completely by springtime.

We Old Bleach gentlemen and ladies host clubs run throughout winter. Unfortunately our evening runs have to be put on hold as we like to be able to see when we cycle but our Saturday and Sunday rides go ahead as normal all year round.

We’d love to have you join us for a winter of cycling. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll do our best to help out.
