Will there will cake?

where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control. History has proven that. Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.

We have friends coming round that evening so unless they cancel, I won't be able to join you.

A pity as I have always had a fine evening with those Hackney chums.

You could organise a pre-session at the fantastic turkish baths at Ironmonger Row...

ACH would like to thank each and every person who joined us to make the our 5th Winter Ball a stinker of an evening.  It was chilly out on the narrow streets of London but inside The Artillery Arms was enough to warm the hearts of friends old and new from around the country.  A lot of people made a lot effort to make this a pleasingly well attended event.  As well as getting smashed on ESB we also had time to remenis about our Island-2016 Expedition and make plans for the comming season.  We are also quite exited about the new ACH London Area Randoneur Series which we hope you will enjoy.

Sounds like we missed a good do... had intended to go along but ended up being the house of minor sickness for the weekend and decided not to spread it around!

Thanks for hosting a great evening. Are the LARS details published online anywhere? I meant to take a photo of the rides listed. It would be great to have a crack at this.

I'm planning to put something in the next Arrivée about the Lars award, but will post something here in the meantime.

There will always be a place for Chippy and the Dock Tower in my heart...

I believe the Mayor of Casterbridge is the US of Asia on a jolly.

Hello Folks
By popular demand, this years ACH Winter Ball will be held at The Artillery Arms in Islington once again.  This cracking Fuller's beauty is in a nice central location for those 'out of town' as well as being just over the border from our homeland.  Join us for the 6th ACH Winter Ball - you don't need to be a member!

The venue is a cracker and we have sole use of the upstairs which also has a bar.  The owners are cool and lock-ins are always on the menu.  The landlord must be a cyclist as he lets you keep your bike inside the venue!

Outside the urban street-vibe has a certain ring of 'Sherlock Homes' - last year there it was fudging freezing outside with a real pea-souper of freezing mist lurking around the cobbled streets.  Meanwhile, inside the venue we gloating about our club achievement and laughing at various antics from the season

Come along..!
