Dieppe… and other news

Dear fellow members and friends

The new blog seems excellent, doesn’t it? Well done, Fred and thanks.

You have probably already had at least one email about the proposed closure of the Grand Avenue cycle lane by the Council. If you haven’t here’s a link sent me by Fred that gives the details  www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-12473925

And if you would like to sign the petition against the closure you can add your name on www.gopetition.com/petition/43064.html

This week’s extract from the 1895 Clarion is a cautionary tale about the dangers of being in a “hilarious condition” while in charge of a bicycle. We have been warned!

Joyce has sent me the following:

Dieppe Raid Ride Cycle Ride

I thought some members would be interested to know about the “Dieppe Raid”.  It is an annual event which this year will be held 11-13 June. It involves travelling to Dieppe Saturday morning – meet up at the Town Hall for a reception from the Mayor at 5 pm. Evening “free” in Dieppe – ride on Sunday – choice of 20-200 kilometres, with maps etc. Proposed evening meal Sunday evening (£30) (or some will return Sunday evening). Others Monday am boat.

People to book their own tickets on the Transmanche (90 cycle places available for Saturday morning and 80 for Sunday evening).


There is an excellent website – have a look  “Dieppe Raid cycle ride”. Anyone from Clarion interested? Let me know, we might be able to have a “Clarion contingent”.   jedmondsmith@yahoo.co.uk
