  • Category 6 ride led by Carolyn Kelleway and Tony Dos Santos

    Seven riders turned up at Hertford and they waited and waited for the lead rider who, erm, was literally hanging in the gutter on the way to Hertford from Enfield. 

    Luckily there was a back up plan for this eventuality. Carolyn had already agreed to plan the route. So the lead rider advised everyone to ride off and he would catch them up. Ok ok, I’ll come clean it was me who was hanging didn’t feel very well.

    The forecast advised it was going to be a wet one. So everyone turned up short sleeved and raring to go. Well one of us rode up and didn’t drive because they were literally hanging in the gutter; I’m not going to mention their name, but he (so it’s not a lady rider) rode up from Enfield and he looked well rough! I turned up at 9am (got to Allenburys early just in case) and the Cat 3’s were all raring to go, had a chat with them and then they left.

    We all knew today was going to be a hot one, hitting a heady 30°C that was predicted. So I decided to meet Hanif at his house and he said “let’s go round the lanes”! 16 miles later and lots of hills, we arrived late! 

    Everybody was waiting tapping their feet. Sorry I was late all.

  • Old Skool TT this Sunday

    This is a 10 mile TT but without aerodynamic aids - so no pointy helmets, tri-bars, deep section wheels etc. Some riders go the whole hog and turn up on vintage bikes. Others go further by actually ageing themselves. It's a relaxed event but there is a club trophy to be won!

    Cool for the last day of June but dry. Yiannis maintained his dominance. Another strong ride from Graeme.

  • Next club TT is on Wednesday 7th June

    This event is on the F10/10 (A10 North) course. First rider off at 19:31.

  • Category 3 ride led by Graham Knight

    The occasional appearance of summer in recent days had inspired a wish to visit the sunny uplands of Dunstable downs and enjoy the glorious views across the Bedfordshire plane. Sadly, perhaps predictably, the weather did not cooperate and wall to wall cloud was the order of the day. The Chilterns Gateway Centre went one better by actually being in the cloud so that visibility was restricted to about 20 m.

    On Wednesday the forecast was for thunder showers, on Friday it was for constant rain, on Saturday it was for cloud but dry. With this improving trend could we hope for bright sunshine on Sunday? No - but it was dry throughout, so the pessimists who had disinterred their winter bikes and water-proofs were confounded.

    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.
