The Section has ticked over nicely during the year. Sunday runs have been held regularly and there is an informal "run" mid-week thanks to the efforts of Trevor Bradshaw. Anna Bryant has done a grand job in keeping our older members together and leading a run almost every Sunday to destinations closer to Plymouth.
Highlights of the year were - the Christmas Lunch, held at Kitley House, where we were able to present Iris Buckler with the DA shield for services to cycling. Much thanks is due to Iris, who served CTC Plymouth as a founder member and organised many events supporting DA Devon.
Yolande Bériot found us a cheap and very agreeable camp site near Douarnenez for our Section Tour in May/June, though she was not able to participate herself because of illness. The trip was blighted unfortunately by cold weather and nasty colds. Even so, it was a pleasantly memorable tour.
The Tamar 100, which is a DATC event, received poor support - only four riders, all from the Plymouth Section.
Larry Clarke's proposed YHA trip received generous support at the AGM, but in the event only he and John Durham took part. Next year's YHA tour will be over fewer days and involve a shorter mileage.
The Section continues and attracts enough new members to ensure its continuance. We are not a fast and furious group, at present, and are best suited those wanting a quieter life-style and a degree of sociability.
