Club Event, Saturday 3 November 2018

Wash Hill at Wooburn Green was once again the venue for the Club’s hill climb, the traditional season closer. On a dry, seasonable warm morning, only two members were brave enough to tackle the anti-gravity event. A minor panic by the finish timekeeper when, due to his unnatural strength, his rear wheel pulled over while ascending the hill, luckily failed to affect the result as he wasn’t caught by the first rider. The result is as follows:

Club Event, Saturday 1 September 2018

As 1st September is the start of the meteorological autumn, it was not surprising that the day dawned bright but a little chilly. Once again traffic lights appeared on the course for the third time this season, which impeded the riders to varying degrees. With holidays still in vogue Harj was the only Road Club rider (he was really quite thankful for the short rest while the traffic lights were on red!) The full result is as follows:

Club Event, Saturday 4 August 2018

The roadworks bug bit yet again for the latest of our club events at Maidenhead Thicket. Given that there were temporary traffic lights in both directions at Burchetts Green roundabout, riders recorded relatively good times. Which left them wondering what they would have clocked had there been no road works! The full result is as follows:

Club Event, Saturday 7 July 2018

With the latest heat wave well under way the club event held at Maidenhead was a sunny and very warm affair. Whilst the riders could choose to remain in the shade until they were called to the start, spare a thought for the time keeper and pusher off who had to suffer the solar onslaught both at the start and finish. There was a fair amount of traffic on the A4 today, but that didn't stop Michelle Ayres setting a season’s best time of 26.46.

Club Event, Saturday 2 June 2018

Very humid and dull conditions prevailed as the riders ground their way along the A4 to the turn at Twyford. They were, however, rewarded by a good, strong tailwind from there to the finish. Michelle Ayres was the only solo Road Club rider finishing with 28.25. The other two Road Club riders were Ken Powell and Gary Wells who rode a two up - as this was Gary's first time trial - recording 30.34. The full result is as follows:
