Hi club-mates! Just to let you know Paul Bishop is starting spinning classes. He has invested in 10 high spec Spinners and for the foreseeable future he will be conducting classes at the Cricket Club Mill Rd. Tadworth (Off the Dorking Rd. opposite the Blue Anchor pub) at the following times.

Monday, Wed, Friday 9.15am
Tuesday, Thurs. 6.30pm & 7.30pm.
Saturday. 8.00am

Cost is £7.50 per session or book 10 lessons in advance for £65. His contact by mobile is 07958 620762, either text or phone.

I have booked my first session for 7.30pm on Tuesday 4 November and will let you know how I get on. Paul is well known to a number of KPRC members and is a fully qualified sport physio. He has put a lot of time and money into setting up this venture and I hope that those who can will give it a try

Tattenhams Indoor Market

An unapologetic and shameless plug here for the Tattenhams Indoor Market this Saturday, 1st November 2014, as Mel (and I) will be there with a stand. It's a chance to have a look at her bags purses etc and buy those Christmas gifts or at least get an idea. Bring your family and friends.

It opens at 10 and closes at 2pm but the café is open afterwards selling teas and homemade cakes.

Venue is The United Church of St Marks, Great Tattenhams, Epsom Downs. KT18 5RD.

ps Mel has also booked a table for the December fair as well so you can collect any orders that you made this week. :-)
See you there.

Redmon 2 -up Missing Photo's

Don't ask me how it happens but following photo's were uploaded but not launched!

Redmon 2 up Gentlemans

I enjoy riding this event as it is based on Vets Standard Time. Mike Wakely did his usual excellent job in organising this annual event and at the presentation in Bear Green Village Hall said that next year will be a special occasion as it will be the 40th anniversary! I am sure that along with me all KPRC members will wish him and Redmon a highly successful event.
This year as ever we had our own amazing, indomitable Frank Cubis as finishing time keeper along with Tony Alston at the start.
It was a notable occasion for KPRC associates as the Fricker family got 3rd father & son! The event was won yet again by John & Eddie Allen from the promoting club. Had Tim been around to pace me we may have got second father and son! As it was had my pacer Helen been my daughter we would have been second family. So the challenge to Tim next year is lets go for it in the 40th anniversary.
In terms of outright winners well Andy Hicks had it all the way with a + 5:23 until Hutchinson came in dragging David Pollard into first place with a + 6:46, Mad Hatter Morley could only manage a - 1:06.

Rons 85th Party at the club room

 Congratulations Ron you have been the Rod and the leader of our club for so many years and your mantle has now been taken by your proud son! Thank you very much for inviting all KPRC members to celebrate your 85th tonight and an even bigger thank you to Doreen for supporting you so well and keeping your health going in recent times. I know now that it's the fairy cakes that have done it! KPRC is a family club and it has taken me some time to appreciate that but I have to say overall it has been a good cycling club over the years and through your good offices has contributed to so much in the cycling community of Kingston! I wish you and Doreen many,many happy years together and I wish to put on record support for our current President who is doing an excellent job in promoting our club and finding ways of encouraging our club to rise to challenges like the Rawson Trophy! I am looking forward to the next annual dinner at the Burford Bridge and even the SCCU Lunch!
