Bash Naming Ride – Thursday 24th August

Hi Bashers.

Thursday 24th saw a new addition to the ‘Bash Handled Ranks’

Calvin Sandford led a bunch of intrepid Bashers from The Kings Arms in Kingsteignton, up through the lanes an over Ideford Common before dropping down through Chudleigh, Chudleigh Knighton and onto The Cromwell Arms in Bovey Tracey – this is where it all went wrong! Someone – or maybe more than one – must have put a bit of extra effort in and was a little sweaty (and maybe smelly) and as a result the whole group were ejected from the pub – not good for a social cycling club!

In addition to the Main ride there were 3 other rides, the Knitters and Sewwers and 2 B groups – one of which managed to lose  Dinky who ended up at Manaton on her own!!

Eventually everyone found their way back to Kingsteignton – for the usual Banquet laid on by Sid – and the main event i.e. the Naming Ceremony. After a lot of deliberation and head scratching Calvin was named ‘Touch Up’ which is a nod to his day job as a Spray Painter.

Welcome to The Fold Touch Up.

This weeks ride is led by Nitelite from The Lord Nelson, Kingskerswell and will incorporate the annual swim so don’t forget to bring your ‘Budgie Smugglers’!!
