Social Shenanigans: dates for the diary

Just a few poignant dates for the diaries, in the near and distant future.

This week is once again Chippy Chuesday after the sea swim in Teignmouth on Tuesday 25th July. As always the swim is not obligatory and neither is ordering chips.

Sunday 6th August is Becky’s Ride, our memorial ride in memory of club member Becky Scott. Everyone is most welcome and there will be at least two rides leaving from Exeter Quay around 9am. Further details to follow.

Sunday 13th August is the date for this year’s club championships at Bideford Triathlon. There is a big emphasis on the social aspect to this event with a club barbecue being held after the event. Many members are acting as “support crew” (often to be seen around 10am with beer/wine/prosecco cocktail in hand) so do come along whether racing or not.

Friday 15th December: Christmas Do

The popularity of this date for work Christmas do’s has not gone unnoticed. If forced to decide, it is worth remembering the level of irritation work colleagues often generate. Hours of pleasantries with the latter compared to an evening shamelessly discussing flying mounts, Bodyglide mishaps and ill-fitting Lycra should make the decision easy.

Further details to follow closer to the time.

As always, any queries (ideally, but not exclusively, related to social events) please drop me a line at
