But, if you are not destined for the jungle and you missed out on a London marathon place, don’t worry, because …….
In other news, as reported earlier in the week, TW men were officially declared winners of the Kent Grand Prix for 2022 and our women were a very creditable second. So, what better time to dust off Mike King’s Champions route.
With Mike King as this week’s Routemaster聽馃殞, fasten your seat belts and here we go ……

Therefore, I have set my best attempt at finding a trophy around the streets of RTW (yes, it’s a bit wonky).

One section in Calverley Park is also running up a grassy hill so again if too slippery please use the footpath instead”.

Hockey Chris聽has been promoted “upstairs” (presumably to spend more time with his family) and has handed over the day-to-day reins to Tea Total Trevor, hopefully still selling the finest beer (Harveys), wine and soft drinks in the immediate vicinity, at聽special聽prices.
7:30 prompt start from the Nevill – change rooms, showers and bar all open聽– it’s time to commit !
