Funny one this. Chris Hart and I used to ride behind the school in the early eighties. How the wheel turns!

Would love to come to zone poem tomorrow, but my car has broken and I cannot tow bike to venue. Anyone near durbanville who could give us a lift?

If you can't come right this week - we meet there every week.  Dion Graham is from Durbanville and a regular at Zonnebloem, but work has interfered and he often cannot make it.

In mid-winter the trip out to Zonnebloem and the R50 is almost not worth it, since it gets dark early.  But I go regardless, because every time I learn something new.  Last week it was just Michael Krause and I, and we got to ride for about an hour.
