We had one new rider tonight, Rose E (Mrs Chairman!), who did a very commendable 24.26. Not bad for someone who is new to cycling, well done Rose. Of the others, … Read entire article »

Richard W, Matt S, Chris M, Paul E, and Dave L (and Mrs Dave L briefly) all turned out for this evenings TT. No PB’s for this year were posted but Matt was only 4 seconds adrift of his best time, and Dave L … Read entire article »
