Members have a break for the Bank Holiday week but events resume on the 5th June with the first of three events around the testing Thurnscoe-Hickleton circuit, 54 laps in all for a total of 15 miles. This series of events brings something different for time triallists to have a go at.
Last Sunday 10 riders enjoyed the sunshine and rode out to Retford, after this long hard, cold winter. Taking part were Roger Bacon, Chris Jenkins, Roger Senior, Steve Myatt, Paul Mynett, Phil Adams and Marc Peasegood, plus guest appearances from David Scargill and Joe Woodhouse. 70 miles total achieved and thanks go to ace navigator Steve Myatt.
