Blog –Day 24
Into the final week of the 30 Days. The weather has been very good this year, much better than some previous years. Only the first half of the first week saw a few of you get soakings. I have tentatively looked at the weather for the week coming and, apart from the slight chance of some rain on Saturday, the weather looks set to continue.
Just a few jerseys left. XXXL Short Sleeve Mens / XXXL Long Sleeve Mens / XXL Long Sleeve Mens / Medium Long Sleeve Mens / Medium Long Sleeve Ladies. These are available to riders at reduced price of £25 each.

Well done to Crème Anglaise Ladies followed their Liberation Day Static Bike Fundraising with the same at a Red Eye Departures session at the airport on Thursday last and raised over £400.
Alison Mathew also did a Red Eye Depatures session at the aorpost on Saturday.
Duro, Genarro and Kaitlin from Hotel de Havelet have been static bike riding outside Moores Hotel each Saturday of 30/30. It was a little quiter in town this Saturday while the wedding of Harry and Meghan was taking place.

Paul Langlois, who plays with the KB Project, has arranged for the group to play free of charge at the Fermain Tavern on Tuesday 22nd May. Other groups playing include the highly popular WAR POETS and also an appearance by Josh Brown.
Paul has added “The KB Project are an 8-piece band playing a range of bluesy/soul/jazz music including Etta James, Joss Stone and Amy Winehouse. The War Poets are well known local musicians playing ‘Country-Americana’ covers and self penned songs.”
It is open to all but 30/30 riders past and present especially welcome. Wear your 30/30 jersey if you wish to.
Entrance is free but a collection of donations to Paul’s 30/30 fundraising for Les Bourgs will be held.
All bands and the Fermain Tavern Venue are providing their talent/venue free of charge so 100% of funds raised will go to Les Bourgs.
