Details about riding to David's funeral

Dear friends,

David's funeral will take place next Thursday, 15 February, at 4.40 pm at the North East Surrey Crematorium, Lower Morden Lane.    We suggest meeting by the Tesco/petrol station on the London Road (A24) opposite Langley Avenue where there is space for a dozen or more cyclists.   From here we will ride via the Hamptons to cross Green Lane and follow Pig Lane to the back entrance to the Crematorium.   There are no Sheffield stands so bring good locks!

We will see you outside Tesco/petrol station ready to leave at 4 pm.

If you cannot contact Colin or me, Lynda is the alternative.

We do not know if there is a wake or gathering planned for afterwards.

Bike Beans Café lease

Sue Bellamy found this piece of unwelcome news on Bike Beans' Facebook pages and has forwarded it to us:

"Over the Christmas period I have taken the very difficult decision not to personally renew the lease on Bike Beans Cycle Café which expires at the end of March 2018. Having thoroughly enjoyed & dedicated 6 fantastic years to 'fuelling the revolution' and building a fantastic community, I feel it's now time to move on and make way for "new blood".
My overwhelming desire is that Bike Beans Cycle Cafe continues under new ownership. I am already underway looking for a suitable successor, with this aim being supported by both the Landlord and the Club committee.

What does this mean for our customers & members?

Business as usual from the team & I until the end of March.

From April and beyond the aim is to find a successor to take our vibrant little business forward.

So if you or you know anyone that maybe seriously interested in ‘living the dream’ and taking on a well established, award winning Cycle Cafe with a strong reputation and following, as well as 200 Club members, then please contact me. Feel free to share .
07941 535837

I look forward to this ‘great thing’ carrying on .... I better go and open up .... See you soon !
