This years Halloween overnighter was a great success once again. 18 brave souls headed of for a night out in the Jumilla hills. 110 kms there and 110kms back again. The weather was perfect, the hotel welcoming and the paella was delicious. A big thank you to David for the organization and a big thanks to Peter for the excellent support service

Amigo Steve Donaldson (with pink hair in photo!) recently rode three events at The World Transplant Games in Newcastle-on-Tyne, UK


I rode three events at the worlds.

1.10k TT

2.20k team TT

3.30k road race

The TT’s were held on closed road on Newcastle quayside a 5k loop.

In the TT I managed to finish 8th , which I was quite pleased at.

In the team TT , it was the first time Justin Grace and Simon batch and myself had ridden together!! Justin and me quite experienced in TTT , simon never ridden one before. We actually worked really well together , with me hanging on for the last 2 laps. We were absolutely shocked to get a 3rd place and on the podium.

In the road race at Hetton Lyons Park in Sunderland, it was 17 laps of a slightly hilly circuit , managed to hang on for a few laps then the elastic band snapped , then we had a wee bunch of 5 working chasing the lead group of 6, we didn’t catch them.

In the final sprint I managed 2nd in our wee bunch, so 8th overall.

Quite a successful WTG.

A gota fria yesterday prevented some Amigos from reaching the Casa Paco lunch with John,

The restaurant had no electricity !

Nevertheless, they produced the usual excellent meals using the barbecue and it was a lovely occasion for the 22 who did make it.


A new club jersey was presented to John as a token of our affection and the esteem in which he is held as our oldest rider, still going very strong at 83 !


We hope to see John and Joan returning for many years to come,
