CHEDDAR CYCLING WEEKEND
24th - 26th March 2017
This was organised by ABO and helpers.
We stayed at the Cheddar YHA and enjoyed good company and fine weather throughout the stay. The weekend ended with a Hash organised by the Bristol Hash.
Teams lining up for the egg and spoon race team briefing.
Blatant cheating by the men here!
Oh Dear - Bandit is having to say goodbye to his horse.
The Tweedledum and Tweedledee Bookends
A Game Of Bum Bombing
Queen’s “I Want To Ride My Bicycle” Themed Cycle Day
BOF pointed out that in the video to Queen’s song the ladies were all cycling naked and suggested that should be the theme for the day - see here.
This was enthusiastically supported by the men but there were suggestion from the ladies that the cold winds might bring a sighting of a large flock of pairs of Blue Tits...
We were greatly honoured by the presence of Her Majesty The Queen who graciously joined Hardy’s Hash on their ride.
Boring Old Fartie lived up to his nickname by this nerdy interpretation of the Freddie Mercury connection.
And Organgrinder backed him up.
ERCO won the fancy dress competition.
Her Gracious Majesty was given a Down! Down!
Definitely NOT a Fat Bottomed Girl!
Off on a cycle ride taking in four pubs and a picturesque reservoir.
Meanwhile, whilst the cyclists had enjoyed their riding and visiting four pubs, BOF had spent the afternoon trying to travel ten miles from Cheddar and ten miles back using the local bus service. Having stood at bus stops for a total of over an hour waiting for buses that never turned up he was rescued by Buscock and Swatchstika in a taxi - for which he was decorated with an indelible black nose and...
... a turn wearing the ‘Twat Hat”!
“Hey ABO. Codpiece reckons she can easily beat you at pool!”
ABO - “Come over here Codpiece and I’ll show you how to play”
Codpiece - “Hmm - I think I’ll go for a three ball plant giving the middle ball just enough spin to screw it back to baulk and clear the table”
ABO - “Blimey! You’ve done it! I feel exactly like what my hat says!”
Codpiece - “Fancy another game ABO?
ABO - “Yes, but not pool!”
