Greg Elwell lowers Club record for the 100 for the second year

 Having been sadly defeated by ill-health in his first attempt at the 24 hour record Greg has now soundly beaten the Club record he took last year by 6 minutes and thirteen seconds!  The new time is 3.38.25 which comes out to 27.498 mph!  Which earned him 22nd place from 81 starters. 

The Club Records page has been updated accordingly.  I would post a picture of the man a-wheel but he seems to be a bit camera shy....

Chapeau Greg!

Notice of 2021 (and 2020 posponed by Covid) Annual General Meeting

 

Hello members

Finally….it feels like the country is in a place where we can re-instate the club meetings. 

 

The plan is to hold the club's AGM meeting on Friday 17 September at 19:30 hrs at the Cross Keys, Siddal.  A club meeting will follow.

I really look forward to seeing everyone on the 17 September 2021.

Kind regards

Another nice ride for a bike ride

Lovely weather  for the second week in a row, likewise the grub at the Rock.

One more PB this week too!  Mr B took 2 seconds off and is right on the cusp of the sub-20 minutes top 10. 

Still short of riders.....

Nice night for a bike ride.

 The e-trike was eschewed this week in favour of trying to cheer up the remaining dogs by forcing them to watch the time-keeper (they did get a pub tea and a run round a field just after some deer had passed through though.)

Nevertheless the biggest field for some time saw 5 riders do one or two laps and our first PB of the year from Mr Heyes knocking 3 seconds off his two lap time and moving one place up the all-time list.

Well done all - lovely evening. Great grub at the Spring Rock afterwards.

Come rain come shine

 Tuesday 25th May saw the rain hold off long enough for JK and Sam to get ready but then it came down. JK persisted and recorded a time for himself whilst we buggered off home.  Sam's computer unit was insisting she was doing 61 mph whilst stationery which applies the motor brake. To rainy to fix. 

Tuesday 1st - a glorious evening with the trike fixed again. Not a huge turnout but we were all able to sit outside the pub in warmth and have pints and/or grub. Mmmm....

What's that big yellow thing...?

 So, tonight we had a lovely sunny evening with a slight breeze so everyone apart from the five who rode has no excuse for not turning out.....slack, slack, slack...

No PBs I'm afraid. results below:

The perils of global warming once again...

 The last three weeks have been a bit unsettled for weather.  

On the 27th the Timelord withdrew but a certain Mr Hayes stoutly took it upon himself to go up and ride two self-timed laps (copy Strava!). 

On the 4th no one at all was hardy enough to venture out. 

Finally tonight, the 11th, it was fine until 10 minutes before usual start time when the clouds began to close in and Samantha and Graham went early in the vain hope of avoiding the deluge to come.  Alas it was not to be and the Timelord looked on in horror from his nice dry van as the thunder thundered and the lightning lightened and the hail Caesered..... (you see what he did there...)

Anyway well done to all the above three hard men/woman putting the rest of the Imps to shame. 

No personal bests....
