    Yiannis returns to the top on a warm, humid night on the A414.

  • Category 2 ride led by Chris Boulton

    Great ride today on a tweaked version of the HW Centenary Ride.

    It was an earlier start than usual in an effort to beat the heat that was forecast – the Garmin recorded temperatures from 15c to 45c.
    The ride was steady, with a drink stop at Saffron Walden, a lunch stop at Finchingfield and a pub stop at Stanstead Abbotts.
     
    Apart from a rubbing disc and two punctures there were no other mechanical issues.

     

    Centenary ride involving other categories

    Sadly, three Wheelers had to withdraw at the last moment but the three that remained provided some close competition. Well done Hanif Jetha who nudged Claire out of first place on his first Wheelers' TT (and his first anywhere for many years). Commiserations to two riders - Yiannis Gopoulos and Sam Brown - who both suffered punctures and had to retire.

  • Next Wheelers 10 mile TT

    Next Wednesday 2nd June, 19:30 on the F20/10 (A10 South).

    Great ride today to a new café for the Cat 2s. El Cafecito, was not planned, but it had plenty of space, was bike friendly and is 5 minutes from Shepreth.

    Category 3 ride led by Paul Henderson

    A loss of three, a gain of one and a crash. Not my recent investment record, but the number of Wheelers on the category 3 ride to The Hay Barn on Sunday.

    The May showers relented and we were granted a sunny evening with light winds. Graeme continued his recent good form and led home the Wheelers. There were good results amongst the private entries too - both Andy Georgiou, and Andrew Halpin were first time time trialists.

    Thanks to Peter and Graham for the time-keeping and Lee for the signs.

  • Category 3 ride led by Graham Knight

    A good turn-out on what promised to be a damp day. Several arrived fully equipped with mudguards, bullet-proof tyres, waterproof clothing and snorkels. In the event we rode on completely dry roads until we were nearly home and felt not one drop of rain. The café stop at Flint Cross was enjoyed in unbroken sunshine in the company of both the Cat 2 and Cat 4 groups.

  • The Wheelers' summer Wednesday evening club runs are starting again on 19th May. We are hoping for some nice warm summery evenings!

  • We now have permission from the police to move our 19th May TT to the Cole Green course (F4X/10 = F6A/10).

  • Resurfacing work is scheduled on the A414 which means we cannot use it for the event we planned for 19th May. We are hoping to move to the Cole Green Course (FX4/10). However, we need to have this change agreed by the police so we cannon confirm it at present. 

    Look out for further news on this.

    It was another cold, inhospitable night but at least the threatened rain and hail held off. There was a good turn-out, especially from the private entrants. Thanks all for taking part. Thanks also for Graham and Pater for the timing and Sam for the signs.

    Only four at the start! Still, it's quality not quantity that you want in a ride, so it was good to welcome Barry back after a long absence. Despite declaring a lack of long-distance rides he outlasted us all. The others were Richard, who did sterling work pulling us along between challenging himself on all the hills and Denis, who finally enjoyed a ride devoid of mechanical misfortunes.

    I thought it was about time I stepped up and lead my first Cat 6 club run.

    Having studied a few of the previous leaders in action, I knew what was required of me.
    I had to find the quietest of lanes (Mike), I had to continuously float effortlessly from the back to the front of the ride (Danny), whilst chatting and laughing as I climbed every steep hill (Tony DS).

    Despite the tough course and cool weather there was a good turnout, 8 Wheelers and 3 private entrants. It was good to see several of our less regular time-trialists joining in the "fun". Well done to all of them!
