The Warminster Wobble is here!

This is a brief reminder to local riders that the Warminster Wobble weekend kicks off tomorrow with a series of bike rides in the Warminster area.

Then on Sunday, it’s the wobble day in Warminster Town Park. There’s going to be loads going on, a ride (easy), bike maintenance, displays, stalls, bouncy castle, food… all things bikey. That starts at 11:00am and goes on until 5pm, get there early to ensure you don’t miss a thing. The Town Park is opposite Morrisons, off Weymouth Street.

I hope to see some of you there, I’ll be wearing my big green Highway Cycle Group badge (visible at the top of the right hand column on this blog) and possibly wearing a cycle cap.

It’s going to be great! But it needs you to come along, doesn’t matter what level of cyclist you are, athletic, fun, aspiring, commuter… come along, or where you’re from, come from Bath, from Norton, from Bristol, from Trowbridge, from Westbury, from Dilton Marsh, from Calne, from Melksham. Come by bike, by car, by bus, by train, just get there! There’s something for everyone! Make it a great day for local cycling.

Book – Cycling’s Golden Age

First up, I forgot to mention yesterday that as we rode into Frome with John in front he pulled a pretty nice bunny hop at 30mph on the town bridge, not bad going on a steel frame racing bike, well it impressed me anyway.

I was in Waterstone’s Salisbury earlier today and I found a book called Cycling’s Golden Age, a collection of photographs and artifacts from postwar cycle racing.

Cover and interior of Cycling’s Golden Age.

It is an incredibly beautiful book, click here to see inside it on Amazon. I think it’s going to have to go on the birthday list.
