Highlights Of The Easter Hunt

leave a comment »

It was cold & wet but the show went on.  Thanks to those who turned up for the Easter hunt especially the volunteers, it was great fun in the end.  Big thanks to the sponsors too.  Pestle and Mortar, Chrome industries, 14 Bike co & Continental Tires.

14 signed up, half chickened out  due to the grim weather but it was still a great little challenge! It’s always a bother riding in the rain but once you’ve warmed up & you’re with a good bunch of riders the mood quickly lightens up.  The first checkpoint/meeting place was the inner circle in Regents Park.  Everybody was cold.

We kept our legs moving as we had a reconnaissance of the checkpoints while dropping off our helpers at the checkpoints.

A massive thank you to the helpers from the checkpoints:

1. Ryan and Jake.

2. Michael and Indra.

3. Mike and Sam.

4. Rob and Glenn.

Finish Check point. Mikey and Lettie.

Once everyone assembled, and instructions were read out, Mikey screamed starters orders & the fun began.

We cycled through wind and rain, but luckily it was Easter Sunday so traffic was light. At each checkpoint our riders collected an Easter egg, containing a map, showing where the next checkpoint was.  First to collect 4 eggs won.

The last checkpoint was Battersea park where Mikey & Lettie waited for the winner under Buddha with the prizes & drinks.
