Received a request from a visitor who would like to ride with us for most of August is there anyone with a spare 54cm bike, who is willing to offer a hand of friendship to a fellow cyclist.
In her words...
I'm Fiona from Germany and I'm in Buckingham from the 5th until the 23rd of August because I have to work there for my company.
It would be great to cycle in that time as I do it in Germany, so I'm searching for a club.
Do you know a bike-rental or something like that so I could rent a bike about that time? Or do you have one in your club?
I'm at Strava, too. You can find me as "Fiona Schröder" from Paderborn. I've requested your Strava Club.
What about just for this Sunday, anybody?.
Hello... reva here. We have a spare bike. Well it's Quentin's, but not used much! Pedals might need a change, road bike cleats.
I'll be back home on the 4th. So happy to let Fiona try. Can't remember size though? 54-56?
Thanks Reva, you are a 🌟.
Would you mind contacting Fiona directly to co-ordinate the loan, please. Email address above post, as I am in Cornwall for my grandsons christening until Monday.
No worries. Will do! Will be back on rides in the week I hope. If jet lG doesn't take over. 😉
Thanks @Reva the pressure is of for the moment 🤔😊
Update: Fiona has been placed in a hotel in Newport P so I’ve advised her to contact NBRC or TeamMk as they of course would be more convenient for her.
Hello @Reva, Fiona would like to ride Silverstone on Wednesday evening if your offer still holds.
She has her pedels and riding kit with her. I will be picking her up from Newport Pagnell.
There is no need to do anything on this now Reva. Sorry for messing you around, but Fiona has been told today is her rest day and she has to work the next 11 days, until her return to Paderborn.
Thank you for your earlier offer, just a shame we could not make it work for her.
Yes, to bike being available. But not needed now, so can ignore. Very kind of you to offer the help Fiona. Sounds ike she has a hectic time here. I'm hoping to do the ride on wed. Maybe see you there.
Just being messed about by work...sounds familiar? 😉
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
