Recently we have struggled for ride leaders and participants on our regular club rides.
If you fancy leading a ride, don’t be shy, create it as an event on Facebook and get a few of us to come along. It can be short, long, fast or slow, whatever, just put it out there.
We also need volunteers for the Open 25 TT on the 25 August, Marshals, time keepers and pusher off-er!
Without Club rides, events and other things the club will slowly fade, This is your club, lets use it.
Rob Hussey’s season just keeps going from strength to strength taking a convincing win and a Personal Best along the way on the UC603 course at Lydbrook on Tues April 30th.
The fast flat course from Lydbrook to Walford and back was even quicker thanks to a new layer of tarmac courtesy of Gloucestershire County Council.
17 riders took part in the event with near perfect conditions, quick times were guaranteed. Rob Hussey took the win in a time of 22min 47s, nearly a min better that his previous best. Second home was Earl Smith (RDFCC) with an equally impressive time of 23.29. Third place was taken by an in form Brett Ireland (RDFCC) 24.20
Special mention also has to go to Ant White, Martin Howitt, Matt Neal and Dale Read (All RDFCC) who all smashed their own Personal Bests – an amazing achievement.
