Muswell Hill Peloton Annual Awards

The first ever Christmas gathering of the Muswell Hill Peloton and their respective partners took place in the convivial surroundings of the Maid of Muswell pub.

Among those riders present were: ShuRAAM, The Lion King, Slayer, Gray Goliath, SavilleRow Alex, The Killer, Young Geoff, Bill the Chap, Rapid Ben, Big Mig, Julius Superstar, Iron Mike, Sleepy Bill, Mick the Miller, Gav the Potterer and The Wattmeister. Guest appearance from Yoda RPR.

The awards and winners were as follows:

First Muswell Hill Peloton Rider to Scale Mont Ventoux in Club Kit……….

Winner Gray Goliath.

Longest Ride 2014………………………………………………ShuRAAM approximately 2,200 miles!

Most Mechanicals on Club Ride………………………………..Rapid Ben

Most Innovative Method of Warming One’s Hands…Slayer (by pissing on them).

The following morning saw London’s first proper frost of the winter. ShuRAAM completed a 206 km ride, and several riders turned out for a chilly bash around Regents Park.

Some were obviously the worse for wear. The Wattmeister was feeling the effects of five pints plus an unrecorded amount of barbecued chicken wings. The Lion King turns into a kitten after a few drinks, and Rapid Ben caved in rapidly. But never mind, the laps flew by, Gav the Potterer dominated with a sprint of 800m (WADA have been notified), closely followed by Slayer with a sprint of 2 metres.

Sunday saw a short, sharp shock of a ride with a foursome ascending Swains Lane ten times. Only 30 kms but with 800 metres of vertical ascent. It was fun.
