30 Days of Biking

30 Days

 

Last year a few of the GA and Basket Brigade took part in the “30 Days of Cycling” challenge, Mr Foss appeared to miss-understand the challenge and appeared to be attempting to the moon and back in the month of April, others *cough* covered considerably less.

For an adventure that started off in the colonies it is remarkably GA, quite simply a fellow pledges to ride their bike everyday in the month of April, the trip can be to the bottom of the drive and back or, as in the case of Mr Foss to our nearest planetary body. If a fellow misses a day, no harm done, just pick ones self up by the boot straps and try not to do it again old boy.

We will pop this up on the forum for a touch of mutual support and motivation.

Well, that sounds interesting I’ll give it a go.

GA cap

 

Many of you may have seen the legendary GA cap on television or in magazines over the last year and thought “I really would not mind one of those but the weak Pound makes it a little expensive”

Well those lovely people at Red Dots Cycling have a bit of a sale on, if you care to avail yourself of their generous offer quote “SPRING25″ for a rather smashing 25% off the price of the cap.

 A few of the chaps of the GA have had the caps for a while now, and every outing they have acquitted themselves with aplomb. The linen/cotton mix make the cap a little lighter and breath a little better than a 100% cotton alternative. They have also aged very well all the detailing is actually sewn and embroidered onto the cap so we have none of those horrible peeling decals that can effect cheaper head attire.

Well that is a lovely offer, I think I just might pick one up.

Well, the New Year is upon us and it’s time to get our dance cards out and start making arrangements for 2015, it was a rather special year last year with Mr TCP and Mr Lincstcq kindly opening themselves and their neck of the woods to hosting the GA en masse.

As ever at this time of year the book is open for suggestions and offers of rides for the GA to pop along to. Please find enclosed our itinerary to date, if you care to make a suggestion or two please feel free to shout.
