Heather and Chris S. helped to organize a Cycling Weekend in Llandudno. Most of the group stayed in the Travel Lodge. Friday we had a short cycle around town and the Great Orme and ate at Weatherspoons. Saturday saw the Hares and the Chasers head NE towards Prestatyn following national cycle route 5, returning the same way. Saturday night some ate out at a Greek , some at an Italian restaurant then a pub in town. Sunday the Hares and the Chasers headed SW towards Llanfairfechan following national cycle route 5. The local weather was good for cycling, mild with only two short showers . Sadly the Hares suffered far too many punctures.
At Hazel Grove Civic Hall 20:00 hrs. 07/03/2018. Heather and Chris S. presented a talk with computer photo projector ( stills and short videos ) about their House/Pet sitting/walking adventures during 2017. The dog, Kunekune pig and hamster videos were very well received.

It wasn’t long before we walked through porridge mud, following the Dane valley. In places high up, admiring the cliffs, in others more mud. Sunshine welcomed us onto the Roaches ridge, but with a biting cold breeze. The ridge itself had a smear of snow, turning the rocky path into another slurry of icy mud. We didn’t hang around at the Roaches trig point, too cold. A brief bog trot (we walked faster than the mountain biker) to a minor road. A descent through the trees, accompanied by a brief flutter of snowfall, returned us to our start just as the sunlight was fading.
Jack organised 17 members on a holiday to Puerto de Santiago de Tenerife.
Jack wrote:- Early in February, seventeen of us decided to get away from the cold, wet and snow for a sunny holiday in Tenerife. We stayed in the resort of Los Gigantes, nestled below the massive cliffs. Several walks were organised culminating in a walk down Masca Gorge and returning to our resort by boat. The sun shone for us most of the time and it was a pleasure to be able to walk without any mud.
