REPORT FROM THE OCTOBER 2019 MEETING

 

 

"Ja, mir sind mit'm Radeln da!" 3 Stoke cyclists biked 900 miles from Stoke to Erlangen last summer raising thousands local charities. Alex Findler of Fenton and Matt Kerr of Basford told our October meeting about their 11-day ride with Mark Allman of Meir Park to Stoke's twin city in Northern Bavaria. From the Glebe pub in Stoke, where the idea first started as a joke, their route took them through France, Belgium and the Netherlands to the German border near Düren. They cycled via Koblenz, Mainz, Frankfurt, Würzburg to Erlangen where they raised the Staffordshire and Bavarian flags by the market place fountain. Said organiser Alex, "None of us were experienced bike riders, but we cycled on average 70 miles a day. We only got four punctures!" Thanks go to Stafford-based fixings manufacturer Scell-it® who arranged their accommodation and Tunstall-based Tile Mountain who has provided financial support and cycling wear.The trio raised £5K for Douglas MacMillan, The British Heart Foundation, and child bereavement charity 4Louis. Their justgiving page is still open at www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/stoke2erlangen and Stoke2Erlangen

REPORT FROM THE SEPTEMBER 2019 MEETING

ALL ABOUT PILATES

WITH AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION!

Pilates - the name of the body-strengthening exercises and the German-born man behind them was the theme of our September meeting. First we learned about Joseph Pilates' lifestory as gymnast, boxer, circus artiste, self-defence teacher, WW1 enemy alien in an Isle of Man internment camp, his move to New York where he founded his exercise programme and invented many pieces of exercise equipment. Then Pilates tutor Avis Hopkins put us through some of the 34 Pilates moves. Probieren geht über studieren, und hoffentlich gibt's keinen Muskelkater!
