A Much Better Diet …?

OK, so a fair few of us are probably bemoaning “Dry/Damp January”… “Thin January”…. “Broke January”….  a fair few on a diet…. a bunch on a health kick.  Let’s see how long we can all last at whatever it is we have chosen.  Keep up the willpower!!

On January 28th, 1521, the Diet of Worms began.  It all looks so much better now doesn’t it.

It lasted until May 25th.  Come on Velos… we can do better than that!

Exercise & carefully balanced nourishment.  10am at the Rose & Crown, Ivinghoe.  Be part of the TEAM. (Together, Everyone Achieves More).

To D.C……

…….
A traveling circus came
It brought a pompous businessman
And Donald was his name.
One dark night
He slipped his golden chain
And off he ran to inaugurate
And “Make America Great Again”.

Ooooooooooooo. .

Donald the Republican packed his trunk
And said bye to the family business
Off he went with a Trumpety-Trump
Trump, Trump, Trump
Donald the businessman packed his trunk
And created a politics circus
Off he went with a Trumpety-Trump
Trump, Trump, Trump.

Night by night
He stirred up the political band
When Donald was leading the big parade
He looked so proud and grand.
Lots more tricks
For Donald to perform
They taught him how to take a bow
And he certainly caused a storm.

The ex-head of UKIP was calling
Far, far away
They met one night in the golden light
In a Tower where he should stay.
So Donald from T.V. packed his trunk
And created healthcare turmoil
Off he went with a Trumpety-Trump
Trump, Trump, Trump.

Ooooooooooooo. .

Donald the capitalist packed his trunk
And made an odd set of friends
Off he went with a Trumpety-Trump
Trump, Trump, Trump
Donald the tycoon packed his trunk
And went off to rule the world
Off he went with a Trumpety-Trump
Trump, Trump, Trump.

I’m sorry.  I couldn’t resist.  Nothing to do with cycling whatsoever, but now I’ve got it out of my system, let’s get onto the real news.  It’s going to be cold but there is always a Tea Ride for those who dress accordingly!  Leaving the Rose & Crown, Ivinghoe at 10am.  Be there.  Or be disappointed at home.

Dave, the Tea Ride Rider

……………… lived just down the road
And frolicked in the winter snow
in a land called Ivinghoe
Lots of other riders loved that rascal Dave
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other stuff to crave, oh!

Together they would travel on bikes along the trail
Someone keeps a lookout perched on Dave’s (not-so) gigantic tail
Noble chaps and farmers would bow whene’er they came
Tearide shops would lower their flags when Dave roared out his name, oh!

A dragon lives forever but not so girls & boys
Painted cars don’t give a damn or make way for our toys
One day it may happen, trucks & vans will come no more
And then that mighty Tea Ride will, continue on it’s tour.

It may be cold and it may be snowy but it takes more than that to stop the Tea Ride.  Definitely one for the chunkier-of-tyre.  Lots of warm layers please.  Won’t be far & won’t be fast.  But it will be fun.  It’s what we do best 🙂

Leaving the Rose & Crown at 10am.  the view will be so much better than the one from your bed!
