Pyrenees Rally cancellation
« on: May 31, 2007, 08:23:58 PM »
I've just heard from one of my French contacts who is attending the Manresa rally with his 50cc Simson Duo microcar that Nick & Antje Poll's planned Pyrenees rally has been cancelled due to meteorological conditions.  Might be worth dropping them an email to check but it sounds serious!

Now that the weather is being cited as a reason for cancelling important events like microcar rallies, it's time to sit up and take notice of climate change...

Just back from the Rando Cyclo run in northern France where I fell for the charms of a Peugeot 101 moped and had it brought home.  To balance the collection I have three bikes - a Wisp, an Ariel 3 and a Moto Graziella (sorry, Bob!) - for sale from 2100 tonight on eBay.

Don't worry about the Cheeky Boy going. I've just sold my Bantam, Norman Cyclemaster and a 1930s loop frame bicycle. Oh, and my Griffon. You must be like me. NEED THE ROOM! and the money is useful to buy even more junk.

well crud, that is bad news, I was hoping to see how this one went so I could plan on doing the Rally in 2009.
I suppose it is too early to check the weather for 2009.....

One bike down, two to go!  I'll have to amend my profile if I can remember how to do it now that my computer wizard is away at University.  Bloody kids, never there when you need them!

Hot off the Press - Nick & Antje's rally is back on so you can all combine it with
Manresa if you're heading that way!

Lucky sods, some of us will have our noses to the grindstone...
