Early January is traditionally a time for New Year’s Resolutions, and for predictions about the year ahead. True to my form in previous years, it’s taken me almost a fortnight to formulate my (work-related) good intentions for 2006 – and my predictions may take even longer.
One resolution was formulated over a festive pint or two after December’s NCCTP marketing group meeting. I dimly recall suggesting that representatives from each of the NCCTP members should participate in the Great Yorkshire Bike Ride – a 70-mile charity ride from Wetherby to Filey (riders from 4Projects and Sarcophagus reportedly completed the 2005 edition). This year’s event is to be held during Bike Week 2006 on Saturday 17 June, with entries accepted from late February onwards. I plan to ride myself and to recruit some other BIW riders. Perhaps the NCCTP should have a friendly challenge to see which business can raise the most sponsorship?
