West Drayton Mountain Bike Club

Spain Day 6 A little juant of 70 miles to finish was the task today, no big mountains just lots of rolling hills some higher than others the idea was to start I 2 groups and the rendevouz into ride into town en masse ok without Mr Retro now renamed Frank who wanted to do a little more. The grupetto left at just gone 9.30 and on the first climb the gaps opened as I kept Miss G company , not long after the main bunch of Q, CRS,Tweedle Dee and Dum ,Shadow ,Buster and the Rambler passed us, it was clear the fast boys had decided to have a bit more Hotel time and were intending to blast this final stage. It was not long before they caught my tandem and although we made a little effort to stay with them Gosia was not playing, and after sitting on Tacks wheel for at least 30 seconds we let them go. At a quick coffee break after about 30 miles a number of us regrouped but Q although muttering about riding together from here on as soon as he left the coffee stop he put the pressure on and myself, Judith, Dad and Miss G decided to enjoy the views and let them go. At this stage this was cycling Nirvana, sunshine, a tail wind, great scenery, hills but not to steep , great company and at one stage even the sound of live music and just as the energy levels were starting to drop close to red we came across the leading boys and girls and stopped for the planned out of town rendevouz where the owner was so impressed that he gave us some free drinks and started taking photos for his facebook Page Some two big plates of spare ribs along with numerous Cokes and Coffees later the tail end Charlies arrived, Born Again, Babe Magnet and Gonzalez aka Graham with a new nickname after clocking up some very impressive speeds downhill over the week. It was now time to ride En Masse to the town centre of Santiago the only person missing being Mr Retro now renamed Frank who somehow missed a huddle of 20 red jerseys and Wheels fine matching bowling shirt. Well all the hotels have been superb on the trip but the last one the Hotel San Fransico in Santiago was some what impressive, so impressive that the ageing Ford Transit which looked as out of place in this location as a Sikh at a synagogue was soon banished to the rear of the hotel. A quick shower, some photo calls and then once again the conundrum of packing 20 bikes in the van followed then by a night out on the town. What a great night, live free entertainment, a free rock concert, lots of Red Vino and then an amazing Lazer show, the Spanish certainly know how to entertain. So how did everyone get on Neil, The Machine Ellison- All I can say is he will be having a great cross season on his showing on this trip- awesome up and down but doubly so on the flat. Mick Fuller aka BMF let himself down wearing the same outfit on one day but as always elegant on and off the bike and another going well but I did think he might have put weight on. Alan Hainsworth, given the new nickname of The Limpet by his peers in the fast group due to his ability to hang on the wheels until the climbs when his old climbing ability comes to the fore. Clive Evans-Nails, think he did enough up the Covadonga and over the rest of the trip to recover his past nickname, he certainly suffered up the Covadonga trying but failing to stay in front of an old man.I will live on this for a long time! Simon Slater CRS our very own Chris Froome going so well and pedalling so fast up the climbs, reckon he will have an impressive end of season. Nick Try- The Shadow. Had a bad 2nd day so missed the major climb so think Dad will have to arrange a family holiday in Cangas Des Onis soon as he has some unfinished business there. Wayne Q looking fit on his new machine and certainly going well although I was a bit concerned when his chain came off and the bike appeared to be still rolling. Darren, FIM clearly being mentored by Kasia as he managed to get though the trip without to many verbal faux pas and going well on some of the climbs. Kasia, Crasher think she maybe losing her nickname or passing it over to Nick, goes superbly well up and with a little bit more confidence on the downs would have claimed a greater number of male scalps. Jorge, Buster improves every year and as always was cheerful and dependable, this time with a Garmin! Dave Dad Try A tour virgin but soon found his place in the peloton and formed a duo with G. Will Wingman Blackman formed a working alliance with Kiwi most days both who another year down the line are likely to be in the main peloton. Jodie Senorita Reddell surprised everyone with her riding ability as well as her Spanish, often seen with Wing man in tow. Sue Judith Tebbs, a woman who loved the heat, a wobble on the first day but another tour virgin who came out of it with a smile on her face and I am expecting some great trip reviews. Nigel Smiler Swift and Jean Born Again, never quite sure if Born again was waiting for Nigel or he was waiting for born again but what ever both did brilliantly to ignore the lure of the van seat and Pedro would have been proud of you Jean. Tim, Frank Burrows, a man with his own agenda a lot of the time but when with the group showed flashes of his old form but as always as modest as ever and formed the musical trio at one hotel for a good nights entertainment. Tom Wheels Porter, Mr Dependable and like good wine gets better every year, just don’t mention the senior moments Graham Gonzalez Lane. A cut hand ruined his chances of a full tour but on the days he rode showed his improvement from last year and some impressive down hill speeds. Gosia Miss G a road tour virgin but got stronger as the days wore on and another expected to be moving up the ranks of the peloton next year. So who is going to sign up for next year road trip the provisional plan is to include the Alpe D;Huez and Mount Ventoux ? ...
