In the League of Veteran Cyclists, the women ride against men ten years older....so I get Geoff Cooke, ex-Olympian and Geoff Wiles, ex-Holdsworthy professional......still I did beat an ex national champion to get third in the sprint.....
Meeting The Carpenter's geckos at weigh-in time. Beats a cat if you're allergic to cat saliva!!
renewing acquaintance with Baxter, last seen as a pup....hang on,he still thinks that he is a pup!!
having a tour around a house in Bristol, mid-restoration/renovation....
and The Pirate playing conkers with grandson
To Kent to meet the Pirate's relations again, some in their 70s and 80s and not so well.
Harry the Cat at nearly 20 is deaf but doing well...
and the newest at 8 weeks..
Folkestone..now a little sad now the Channel Tunnel has taken the ferry business...no ferry since 1999 and no trains since 2009....
This art installation says it all. The lines will have gone by the time you read this.
Then a walk around Canterbury, my first visit....I liked the old town around the cathedral...
and the Green Man on the huge wooden doors..
Then on to Manchester for the World Championships, where I managed a bronze medal in the pursuit,and....GOLD in the 500 time trial ....RESULT, after two years' work.
A nice roof at the velodrome...just wish we could have more real light and air...a week in a stuffy tin box isn't enjoyable,but meeting everyone is!
