The rides have dried up in terms of their frequency and the 'old crowd' have - like a successful group from the 1980's - moved on to other projects. However, we still go on rides together occasionally and it is always lovely to see them when we do.
This blast from the past was when we tested our Brompton bicycles on Box Hill and Leith Hill - two hills featured in the Ride 100. As so often is the case when David is leading a ride, the photo below was a common and welcome sight - me trying to keep up with David, while having a nice chat with Anne.
As with the other blasts from the pasts, it is strange to think that such lasting friendships could be forged from a small. folding bicycle with 16 inch wheels!
