I'd be up for a mini adventure. It would be nice to see as many of the troupe as possible.....and I've always fancied coast to coast. I even have a bike with gears now.....Image although I'd probably ride fixed... :lol:

Great news!! Really pleased.

Thanks for all the best wishes from the Wimps
I was very happy to ring the bell to show I had finished the Twenty sessions of radiotherapy I only have a year of hormone treatment left to have, this means 4 injections each one lasting three months.
I didn't know it was possible to feel so exhausted I'm starting to feel more normal now two weeks after the radiotherapy ended but I'm not ready to ride yet so don't start planning any rides until I'm fitter
I'm not getting older,just gaining more experience

Great stuff thank you. Looks like it's my turn this summer.

I do still laugh at the thought of shouting "WIMPS" at you guys when I saw you in Gloucester :D

I doubt I’ll ever forget the fame. One of many brilliant moments we had.

Just been chatting to Landsurfer and we think that a WIMPS Jogle is the way forward in 2020. Previous WIMPS.......who fancies it?
