Didcot Origami Ride 16th September 2006
The return ride was via Sustrans route 44 from Wantage along the Icknield way. This passes through the UK Atomic Research Site at Harwell. We were all glowing after a stop at a nearby garden centre for refreshments. Final leg back to the station went past the interesting wooden sculptures on the trail. Our thanks go to Chris for his excellent organisation and route planning. If you missed this ride join us in 2007 when Chris has offered to choose another route from the many Sustrans routes available in the area. Looking forward to seeing you all at Leamington on the 8th October 2006, Trevor

Marie Curie Cancer Care Ride - Bristol to Bath
Stratford upon Avon Mac Ride 2006
After the ride at Rosliston (see below), where 2 Trices took part, we were able to make an even more impressive showing at the Mac Ride (Macmillan Cancer Relief) at Stratford upon Avon on 10th September. Not only was I joined by Nick Cox, who had ridden with me at Rosliston on his older (Peter Ross era) Trice, but Trevor and Irene were also there on their new Trice QNTs. Trevor and Irene arrived in a large Volvo estate, which holds both Trices without any folding, so I was the only one who folded! We did the 50 mile version of the ride (there was also a 25 mile version), and cruised round very comfortably, even though it was the longest ride that Trevor and Irene had done on the Trices so far. The weather was magnificent, the route and organisation excellent, and the route was well chosen and well signposted.The Trices created a lot of interest - not just by being unusual, but by the spectacle they created as we rode round as a group. Many thanks to the organisers for the work they did to create the event - the turn out seemed very good, and I hope that they were successful in raising lots of money for a worthwhile cause.
100Km on a Trice QNT at Rosliston
My Trice QNT was the only folder that I saw at the 100Km Brevet Populaire at Rosliston on 3rd September, but not the only machine of interest. No sooner had I parked the Smart and started removing the Trice than another car pulled up alongside - and the driver proceeded to unload another Trice! After this remarkable coincidence (we had never even met before), we decided to ride round together. Apart from these 2 recumbent trikes, there was a conventional trike and a Moulton fx8, plus a good collection of conventional tandems in the very large entry. This was a most enjoyable ride, well organised and well supported, though it was quite windy.
