Scene November 2020

Another small but varied edition with 11 different members contributing including our first book review and a word search. We have a Strava race challenge, a suggestion for an off road cycling (and walking) holiday, a couple of glimpses of 1961 plus a wide range of social cycling.

Hope you enjoy the read.
