We have had an excellent season with Glendene riders getting 64 wins so far.
Well done to Paul Saunders, and John Woyton, who moved up a race category from 4th to 3rd, and to Josh Green and Lloyd Chapman who both gained their 1st cat.
If anyone is interested there are Winter Racing Leagues being held at Gravesend Cyclopark (SERRL - second race is on 8th Dec'13), Hog Hill (Starts 11th Jan'14), and at Hillingdon (starts 7th Dec'13).
Also Geoff Martin is running Circuit Training on Wednesday nights at the Club House. We usually start around 8:45pm.
Finally for those of you who have not yet seen the Tour de France 2014 route in Essex I have attached a link (thanks Peter Gottlieb). You may recognise some of the roads!

I recently heard From Mrs. Joan Worsley whose father John Casey was (I believe) a founder member of the club and a past President. She later forwarded to me a photograph of the Club at one of its Annual Dinners some time in the 1920's. Her father named his house Glendene and it is rumoured that the Club took its name from this. I can't confirm this and it could be that he named his house after the Club!
It was a pleasure to hear from her, especially as I recall John from when I first joined the Club in about 1950. Alan Wolfe and Ernie Moss will certainly remember him as they joined well before me.
I was able to show Mrs. Worsley that her father's picture was already in the Photo Gallery on our website and she says 'We went into the picture gallery - and there was my dad, Grandad and uncle Len Gooding, and lots of people that I know.'
Mrs. Worsley's picture is now in our Gallery and I have added the medals to the small collection I have acquired.
On behalf of the Club, and myself, I would like to thank Mrs Worsley for these items and wish her all the best for the future.

I look forward to seeing you all.
