The Sunday Cyclists went to the Alps

A week of mountain biking

Not only that, they ‘Toured de France’

And even did some hiking



The first sojourn was really tough

Hunger, cramping, thirst

“I’ve gotta stop, I need to drink”

“Let’s get to Gatwick first ! “



A greengrocer of low repute

Sold chilli for the garnet

He’s known forever as the man

Who put the conned in carne



They rode along the forest paths

Colours red, green, brown

But no matter which way they went

The trails went up not down



“Today we’ll go without a map”

No specific destination

For miles they went, no sense of route

And rode past Turin station



The Fines Chairman was truly on form

Everyone felt his boot

Apart from one who suggested the sport

Of a Walkie-Talkie shoot



“Let’s play some cards, I’ll show you how”

The Social Sec declared

We’ll play for matches to keep it cheap

But one of the boys got flared…..



That Band of Brothers – now truly one

Hugged with tears in their eyes

They packed their bikes and headed west

To the sound of Eidelweiss (which was odd because they’d been in France)
