Club Run Reports - 30th July

Cat 6 led by Bob Brown

Bolstered by a couple of Cat 3 regulars who didn’t fancy Barry’s 100 miler, eight set off from Hartham bound for Mill End Garden centre at Rushden. Not quite up to Mike Easts’ immaculate timekeeping, Captain Bob got his group to the venue two minutes early at 10.58.
After excellent cakes and coffee at the very welcoming tearooms, the return ride took in a loop around Bennington just to test the legs. But this brought about a puncture which caused enough of a delay to cause the ride leader to change the plan on reaching Watton, and a thrash along the A119 finished off a good ride.
32 miles at 12.5mph

Cat 7 led by Tim Dobson

Much Hadham start saw six wheelers on mtb's for off-road route into Lea Valley via Eastwick and Stort towpath to join NCR 1 to Olympic white water centre for lunch. Paths wet but luckily rain held off. 43 miles total. Riders Tim Dobson leader, Angela Dobson, John Farnham, Cathy Parker, Gary Davies and Tim Townsend all full points.
