Janice’s Soup Kitchen Ride

Janice Bennett (pink top, centre of photo) organised her annual charity ride, ably assisted by Phil (in front of fridge), taking in a number of scenic (read hilly!) lanes around Chapel-en-le-Frith, Chinley and New Mills. Suitably hungry, we then repaired to Janice’s house for her usual array of delicious home-made soups and cakes. A great day out and sincere thanks to Janice and Phil. 

Janice sends her thanks to all those who supported this event. The total raised was £225, which will be divided equally between Blyth House Hospice (in Chapel-en-le-Frith), and East Cheshire Hospice (in Macclesfield).

(Clare Ridgway kindly took the photo — she was there too, and cycled all the hills!)

Bike stolen in Buxton

Here’s a post about a bike stolen in Buxton.

Hello Roger

I am contacting all the cycling clubs around Manchester to see if I can track down my bike that was stolen in Buxton on Sunday 8th April and was for sale on Facebook Marketplace that evening advertised by a 14 year old scally in Stockport. It’s a MEKK POTENZA 3.0 which is uncommon enough that I’ve never seen another one.  Picture below.  I know this is mine because the saddle slipped on the ride that morning — and of course there are several other features that I can see in the photo.

Would be really grateful if this could be circulated and anyone that finds it could let me know. There is currently one on eBay that I know about and isn’t mine (has black bar tape.)

Many thanks
