Dust yourself off from the Bank Holiday blues and Easter Egg over indulgence and find out what kept the faces behind your screens entertained during the bank holiday weekend!
We were as guilty as anyone in making the most of the abundance of chocolate available over Easter! But with the good (ish) weather we were treated to, some of the staff peeled themselves off the sofa and went on some adventures! Check out what they got up to…
So, in no particular order, lets start with Vicki!
Our dispatch aficionado went on a little jaunt down to the South West, a bit of a trek from HQ here in the East Midlands! But some would say it was totally worth the 4 hour journey for views like this…
What better way to spend a long weekend than going to the beach, Easter Egg hunts and the occasional tipple of some locally brewed cider with the family!
The North Somerset coast probably didn’t know what hit it when Vicki rocked up but we’ve not heard anything to suggest otherwise that it seems to still be in one piece!
Days out to Dunster Castle and the odd game of Mini-Golf kept Vicki busy over the weekend, an action packed flying visit for her! Even the wind in Minehead couldn’t keep her quiet out on the mini golf course and she even got to stretch her legs on the golden sands.
Johnny made the most of the weather and got out on his bike; product testing if you will!
A mere hour and 15 minutes up the road from magical Rutland stands Sherwood Pines, a brave place to visit on a Bank Holiday weekend given its proximity to Centre Parcs…! But that didn’t put him off getting out on a bike for the first time this year!
Stabilisers and plenty of food were the must have items for the day, although amidst all the excitement, he decided not to pack his shoes so a 13km ride through the trails in a fairly decrepit pair of Vans was the order of the day!
Johnny took a pair of Oakley EVZero Path glasses with him to Sherwood to check out the Prizm Lenses. His verdict? Bloomin Awesome! Although when you see someone riding trails in some £140 sunglasses and a pair of Vans. All the gear (apart from shoes) and no idea comes to mind!
Well worth the trip up the A1 and a top day out was had! So much so that he got back on his bike after work one night this week and took to the trails in our local Wakerley Woods. Two rides in a week? It must be nearly summer!
Head honchos James & Claudia ‘Trumped’ the lot of us and ventured across the pond to the US; California to be exact!
James & Claudia’s adventure took them to Lake Tahoe and the April showers awaited them! April showers of snow of course!
With Tahoe sporting record snowfall the conditions were perfect for a family ski trip; even the kids learnt a trick or two! With Dexter and Kiki enjoying a blast around Ski School, James & Claudia had a bit of an explore and came up with some cracking pictures like this…
Doesn’t look too shabby eh?
However with great snow comes great issues, as they found out. The dumping caused their hire car to be caught in a snow drift, getting them a bit too acquainted with the Mount Rose Fire Department! What’s a holiday without some sort of drama anyway..!
Claudia took it one step further, or 10,000 steps further in fact! She took part in the Santa Cruz 10k which has somewhat divided opinion in the office as to whether that is a suitable holiday activity!
Their two week trip to the Golden State was a success, both returning with a healthy tan. It turns out it was a bit sunnier in California than Peterborough over the last couple of weeks! Although after looking after the kids for two weeks in America including your customary trip to Disneyland, James has come back in desperate need for another break!
Zoe almost made it all the way to the States, but ended up on the Isle of Man instead!
A scenic drive took our glazing whizz to the little island in the Irish Sea. Given her passion for Superbikes, you would have expected a trip to watch the TT, however this time it was a visit to the in-laws that took her to those parts!
Lots of scenic walks and trips to the beach awaited Zoe on the Isle of Man and from the pictures she has sent us, you can see why it’s something of a close to home holiday destination!
Historic ruins were a bit of a port of call for Zoe in her trip too! A day out to Peel castle was in order, you can’t go away somewhere and not take in the sights of historic Viking Battlefields!
It’s common knowledge that the Irish Sea in April can’t quite compete with the crystal waters of the Caribbean, but that didn’t stop Zoe from having a bit of a paddle and as she said ‘It was cold, but if you see the sea, you have to paddle!’ Wise words there!
So there we have it, we hope you enjoyed our little round up of what we’ve been up to! Follow us on our social media pages to see some more #RxSportAdventures
