Club Event, Saturday 2 September 2017

A cool, sunny, but decidedly autumnal morning faced the riders in the last of the season's Club time trials at Maidenhead Thicket. James Roberson was the fastest club rider with 26.16 followed by Michelle Ayres in 27.56 and Bob Hewett with 29.13. Dave Keeley and Steve Kish rode a two up recording a time of 26.04.

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 1 July 2017

The early morning rain gave way to dry conditions for the latest club event although a brisk westerly wind prevailed.

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.

Club Event, Saturday 6 May 2017

The very strong North Easterly wind put paid to the aspirations of riders in the second of the Club’s events at Maidenhead Thicket. For the first time, I think, we had a DNS as one of the riders from the Didcot Phoenix had forgotten to bring his cycling shoes with him. The full result is as follows:

Club Lunch, 2 April 2017

Once again the Club lunch was held at Bird Hills Golf Club. The excellent carvery was enjoyed by eleven members with much jocularity and plenty of reminiscing. The Club secretary presented Michelle with the points trophy for her to clean for the next year. In order to instil more completion for the trophy it was decided that in future second claim members will be eligible.
