Team Triplet Photo Review 2000


Ceri and her fellow champions in the Tandem Club Hill this year.  Hannah won fastest Ladies with her mum, Thomas fastest Men with his dad.  They are seen here relaxing at our lunch stop after the hill climb.  The hill climb was in Lincolnshire - yes there are hills there.

Mayday weekend we camped at Blaxhall with the Tandem Club.  On the Saturday we rode to Felixstowe and returned via the Ferry.  The ferryman did a roaring trade that day with tandems.

In the Summer our main Holiday was to The Harz mountains and the Tandem International in Bavaria.  Before getting the ferry from Dover we camped at Folkestone Warren.  Here is Ann and Ceri-Si‚n getting lost amongst the long grass.

The main reason fro spending a week in the Harz was the metre gauged Harzquerbahn system.  Our first trip was from Nordhausen up to the top of the Brocken, the highest point in the Harz mountains.  In the days of the cold war this was the forbidden land of the Eastern Block

In order to do the whole system Ceri-Si‚n and I had to take a little trip on the railcar from Niedersachswefen to Stiege and back.  Even thou we were less then a few miles from the border - English was not spoken anywhere, even on the former western side of the Harz as the English do not go that part of Germany.  We had great difficulty in explaining to the train driver/guard/ticket collector etc that we wanted to go on train to the end and come back immediately!.  In the end he shrugged his shoulders and we had a free ride.

After the Harz we headed south for the Tandem Club international Rally at Wirsberg in Bavaria.  On the first evening the village provided a welcome with children dressed in national dress.  Here is Ceri-Si‚n and with Hannah Payton and Brumhead posing with the young ladies of Wirsberg.

Ceri and I took an active part in the Kinder Programme at the Tandem Club International Rally.  Ceri had sneaked off and had ago at this without asking her Mum or Dad - she was afraid we would say no as only 3 months previously she broke a bone in her foot.
