Tewkesbury 3002010: I rode 18 200s, two 300s, two 400s, and a 600 to give me another SR and 56 points for Randonneur 5,000. I was yet again a member of the winning Summer Arrow team (with Judith Swallow and Dave Minter) for my eighteenth (and last) consecutive year in the AUK Hall of Fame.

Then in October I joined Peter Marshall, George Hanna, John Barkman and Martin Lucas on Peter’s series of six 200km permanents from Cherbourg to Perpignan – this is a superb route which I’d highly recommend anyone to ride, the only downside being that Anne wasn’t able to ride with us!
