WRG cycle ride 2013


On 21st July ITI’s Western Regional Group (WRG) again set off on a cycle ride along the Kennet and Avon Canal. 16 adults and (my) 2 children met in Bradford-on-Avon to cycle over to Bathampton. Not only did the day provide a good workout, but there was also plenty of opportunity to take in the stunning and picturesque scenery. We enjoyed observing the colourful and decorated narrowboats, the old stone bridges and people boating, canoeing, fishing, cycling, walking and even swimming in a nearby river. The weather was brilliant, with lots of hot sunshine under a clear blue sky. We were pleased to welcome Kari and Lawrence Koonin, who had come all the way from London with their bikes to join us. They were not our first special guests as last year Nick Rosenthal and his son Max had cycled with us.

The WRG cycle ride is now in its second year and has had much positive response from participants. A big thank you is extended to Aletta Stevens for again organising the event, making arrangements for our visit to the Angelfish where we had our lunch, and even accommodating last-minute requests.
