Well half way through 2017 already and the miles have been building up, lots of changes have been happening so this is an update.
Donnie Darko has had his second hip replaced and is back out riding again and training, he’s doing really well.
DrQ is still out doing the miles and going to out do us all !! but I’m still here MR and will give you a run for your money haha !! and we are both doing L’Etape London by Le Tour de France 24th September 2017
Spitfire and The Machine are still riding when they can but have lots of work commitments.
Peanut after having his Hernia OP and moving jobs hasn’t been out for some time now.
Gnizzie and Stevo have retired at the moment from cycling but I hope that they will return.
Little Legs having a hectic life has been out with me on Sunday and as always peddles hard and fast and think she will give DrQ and me a run for our money eventually, was nice to ride with her again.
Jag my son is training me hard to be a better endurance rider, I would recommend him to anyone who requires training of any sort.
I be in training for the Isle of Wight ride now moved to March 2018 where I will be riding round the Island 60 miles in a dry suit for charity, Sandown and Shanklin Independent Life Boat.
So think I’ve covered everything up to date, so remember if your riding……ride fast ! ride hard ! ride safe………The Green Meanie
So starts 2017, lets hope we have a good Cycling year !
Most rides are now up on Bike Events and Wiggle and I have booked as many as I can.
Remember the Isle of Wight ride will be in October and I might be heading to Taklamakan Desert in November to do the 347 Miles non stop to beat 28 hours 17 minutes but this is proving to be a nightmare to organise, will keep you posted.
Be nice to catch up with you all soon, Donnie Darko is still off after having his hip replaced and Peanut will be in soon to have his hernia operated on.
So as always ride safe, ride free, ride fast !

Well Guys its been an eventful year….
Loads of rides done and yet again loads of charity money raised, thanks to you all for putting up with me The Green Meanie and all my wacky money raising ideas, I like to think we make a diference in the fact of helping where we can and do the best we can, I will always be doing something while I still can to help those who need it.
You are all great as well for giving up your time to help.
So ride safe, ride fast, ride good, always enjoy the life.

Hi Guys if my maths are correct then we raised a total of £ 5866.50 for NRAS, great achievement from all and thank you for doing that as a team was a good challenge because of the weather but something I will never forget, The Green Meanie
Hi Guys, have a new challenge for next year ! Just been over to the Isle of Wight for a few days and did some cycling, some great hills and lots of wind as usual ….met everyone from the Sandown & Shanklin Independent Lifeboat, these guys risk their lives for others and do it voluntary all year round and need donations to help keep them going, so you know where im going with this….next year was going to cycle the Island full circuit but I will be wearing a Lifeboat Crew outfit ( only me ), the team have given me an old outfit to train in but will have to modify it a bit, would like all you guys with me and see what we can raise for them, let me know your thoughts please, The Green Meanie
Lovely windy Sunday………but least no rain just a short ride
Le Classique Francais, finished yesterday, excellent organised Wiggle event, great people talked to so many other riders, great experience cant wait for next year, cobbles a bit of a bone shaker but we all safe and tired long day !
Think the Essex 100 ride goes through here……not saying the name …..DrQ, Peanut……my nemesis ……close my eyes going through and hope not to crash again lol
