Alan’s reputation for devising brilliant rides in the Chilterns was enhanced as nine Loiterers (Stuart, Sally, Mike, two Johns, Bernie, Lilo, Peter and me) followed him on a ride that promised plenty of hills in the morning and a flat return after lunch. No one believed the bit about a flat return or the oft repeated, “this is the last hill before lunch…” and still enjoyed a great day out on a typical October day. The clouds lowered the temperature at times (also threatening rain that never came) and several prolonged sunny spells gave us a glimpse of the autumn colours that will dominate our next few excursions. A highlight of the ride came from four Nobby lectures (is that a record?) after lunch. First Alan explained the origins of Blackwell’s (see picture) where we enjoyed an excellent lunch, and a few minutes later stopped to show where the donors lived – a home once occupied by Peter Sellers. This second lecture attracted a score of nine out of ten from professor Stuart (ten requires a lecture on something Stuart doesn’t already know). Seven of us made it to the afternoon tea stop – despite our leader getting lost and having to resort to Google Maps in the Croxley Green area - where the prof pointed out that today was the birthday of Richard III and recalled the strong link between Peter Sellars and the infamous monarch. This prompted Sally to start Nobby Lecture III by explaining that Richard was a good king who probably didn’t kill the princes in The Tower – earning her a reward - a spoonful of Stuart’s ice cream. The fourth came from Lilo who reminded us about German reunification – German Unity Day is tomorrow. Cycling past The Northwood Hills, Stuart tried to start lecture number five (on Elton John) but was drowned out by the school run traffic. (A full transcript of the four nobby lectures will appear on page 94 of the next Loiterers’ Bulletin). Well done Alan - a very enjoyable day out!
