Sunday 18th Januari 2015 started cold but, undeterred, the first BDWF “STAR” training walk of the Nijmegen 2015 season got underway after a safety brief from Herman “The Boss Man” Boston. An amazing 44 members turned out, familiar old and bold characters, young and brash returners too, and a large group of Air Cadets new-to-BDWF from Salisbury and Swindon.
Our bimble, a modest 10 miles (16kms), took us up a couple of short, steep hills east of the Coate Water start point before a longer, steeper climb into a beautiful, dazzling sun in a cloudless sky. Good to see plenty of first aiders (not much trade), no bacon butties but Herman’s welcome hot drinks at the rest point before a gentle return via the spiral bridge over the M4.
Great to see you all, clear your calendar now, come back and bring a friend on Saturday 31th Januari 2015, 0830 hours for a 0845, another easy start time. We dare you!
