Having enjoyed their company for a weekend it was now time for our Secretary to accompany our visitors on their final short cycle to his home to pick up his car and be driven to Dover for the Ferry home, a trip not without incident.
After a final full English at the Oak and a short journey to Chez Simpson, marred only by the temporary loss of one of our visitors,the onward journey to Dover was completed. Jean-Claude, Michel and Andre were enthusiastic in their thanks to the Rye Wheelers for their Hospitality and that it be repeated soon.
I would like to thank all those Wheelers that gave up their time to be with our visitors, especially those that joined us on that awful Sunday Club Ride. Our visitors were treated to a weekend full of activities and the very best of Wheelers Hospitality and I feel sure they will take lasting memories back to Roubaix with them.
Foreign exchanges like this will spread word of us far and wide, here’s to more of the same.
