Fishtail 443 – March 2017

The main event for Thames Valley since the last Fishtail was the Annapurna Trail presentation by our quest speaker Nigel Adcock. Nigel went to Nepal and completed the ride just before the earthquake struck and some of his before and after pictures showed the total destruction of ancient temples in Kathmandu. The pictures and videos of the ride were quite amazing. The roads could only be described as terrible but the 500cc Indian Enfields on standard road tyres made the trip. Not a journey for the faint-hearted. Many thanks to Nigel for coming along and giving us his presentation.

As the weather should be improving, we are about to start our programme of runs. The first being a joint run with South Hants to Tangmere. The programme continues through the summer and into autumn and we look forward to seeing as many members as possible enjoying at least some of the runs. Dates for all the events are in Fishtail and I will circulate details of meeting places and times closer to the event. Please contact me to be included on the email circulation list if you want to receive details and are not receiving them already.

Good progress is being made with our new Thames Valley Centre website and we hope to have it up and running in the next couple weeks. I will give the web address as soon as it is available. Let’s hope the weather stays fair so we can enjoy some early runs out on the bikes.
