Club Event, Saturday 8 April 2018

Luckily, after the recent spate of rainy weather, the morning dawned dry but cool and overcast for the first of the year's club events. Slight gusts and significant headwind from the turn hampered the riders. However, the biggest obstacles were temporary traffic lights on red in both directions creating long tails of traffic for the riders to negotiate. Consequently, times were significantly affected.

Club Event, Saturday 5 August 2017

The weather relented a little for the latest club event at Maidenhead Thicket, producing a benign morning with no rain and little wind. Our fastest rider was James Roberson with 26.29 although he confessed to be only ‘riding round’ as he was due to ride a ‘50’ the next day. Michelle Ayres finished with 26.46. Joy Payne decided to save her energy for the same next day ‘50’ which unfortunately for her and James was abandoned soon after the start due to a traffic accident on the course.

Club Event, Saturday 3 June 2017

Again a very strong wind blew for our latest club event but this time from the opposite direction, although several riders thought that it didn’t aid them very much on the return leg. John Payne was our fastest rider in 26.59. Joy (Payne) didn’t ride, saving herself for the Maidenhead ‘25’ the following morning, a decision which proved the correct one as she improved her personal best at the distance by over five minutes to 1.05.05.
