    I just got my 'Friends of Herne Hill Velodrome' newsletter.

    The Good Friday meeting is not on this year - it clashes
    with the World Championships.

    HOWEVER there is an alternative event - the fun Friday.
    Racing on road bikes as well as track bikes and open to
    allcomers. First timers can have coached practice in the
    morning. The flyer also says:
    * streetriders one-mile sprint for roadbikes
    * demonstration track racing
    * women's sprints (now who do we know here with sharp elbows
    and a Bianchi?)
    * recumbent bikes, tandems hand power and vintage bikes
    * club team pursuit
    * 40km invitation road riders event

    Hope to goodness this has not changed anyone's plans to
    come. I thought it worth flagging up, as there should be
    lots of interest in this group.

    It sounds, well... fun :)

    I have a feeling though, that this year Nathan and Vernon
    could well be doing a local time trial which means Herne
    Hill is out this year. On the other hand, if they aren't it
    could be fun to go to.

    >* women's sprints (now who do we know here with sharp
    > elbows and a Bianchi?)

    Hey! I got my speed thrill for the season out of my system
    today by sprinting past Vernon up a hill. It's back to
    pootling for me :)
