Out for the Count the Count Sunday 17th September

Twelve of us had fun hunting for clues yesterday on Jeff Meehan’s ‘Out for the Count’ Run. Richard won the trophy for getting the clues right, and we collected over £70 for Jeff’s favourite charity, the NW Air Ambulance.  Thanks to all who participated, and to Bob Moon for finishing & adapting Jeff’s plans and for organising the run.

Cheshire Cats go to Buxton - 10th September 2017.

Despite a none to promising weather forecast six members of the Section made their way across the hills to take part in this years Buxton Run. A change of start venue this year, no longer at the Pavilion Gardens, who seem to be doing their best to dissuade the event from being held there, but at the Palace Hotel just a short distance further down the road. With a choice of two runs we opted for the long 51 mile route which took us on very rideable roads across the High Peak. M&HP have plans to change the format of the run to a more social gathering and it will be interesting to see if this will encourage more people to participate. All in all, it was a very enjoyable day out with only a smattering of rain 3 miles out from home on the return journey.




Out for the Count the Count Sunday 17th September. 

It’s our inaugural ‘Out for the Count’ run on Sunday 17th September – details as follows: 

One of our regular members, Jeff Meehan, was sadly killed last September in a ‘bike accident en-route to our Goostrey Run. At the time, he was putting the finishing touches to a new run which he called ‘Out for the Count’. This was to be a fun-run involving a route round Cheshire, lunch at a local hostelry and a series of ride-by clues to questions in a simple treasure-hunt.  In his memory, Cheshire Cats are putting this run on next Sunday (17th September) 

Unlike traditional Treasure Hunts, where riders have to stop, get off their machines and seek out clues, this one is simple: the clues are flagged up in the route list and riders won’t have to stop as the clues/answers are visual and easy to spot whilst riding by. 

You are cordially invited to take part in this event, which kicks off from our Clubnight venue, Winnington Park RUFC, Burrows Hill, Northwich CW8 3AA shortly after 10am on Sunday 17th September.  There should be refreshments available from around 9:30 at the Clubhouse, lunch at the half-way pub stop and more refreshments on return to the Rugby Club. 

Jeff’s widow, Maureen has kindly agreed to present the winner’s trophy at the end so this promises to be both an enjoyable run and a social event.  Depending on attendance, we may run this annually (which was Jeff’s intention…) 

Hope to see you there!
