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. Dave Keeley, who last rode a time trial in the mid 1990’s, was our fastest rider in 26.54, followed by Michelle Ayres in 28.11, James Roberson in 28.30 closely followed by Bob Hewett with 28.36. The full result is as follows:

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. The full result is as follows:

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.

Club Event, Saturday 1 April 2017

The grey morning gave way to brighter conditions for the first of this season's events on the Maidenhead Thicket course. Several guest riders swelled the ranks on what was, by rider consensus, a fair morning. Joy Payne was our fastest rider in 27.35 closely followed by husband John in 27.56. Michelle Ayres recorded 28.24 followed by Jim Roberson, who was making a time trial comeback after eleven years, in 29.04. John Bridgeman forsaking the tricycle for a solo finished with 36.40.

In order to instill more completion it has been decided that second claim club members will in future be eligible for the club points trophy.
