A very busy (and varied) weekend of riding

The club's riders have been out and about at all sorts of events over this past weekend:

 

Clock Tower Ride Report - 10th June 2018

The average turnout for the Sunday morning Clock Tower Ride continues to grow (15 ish today) and, given the range of preferences and abilities, choosing a route to suit all presented something of a challenge.  Fiona, Janette and Emmaline had expressed a preference for a shorter ride at a moderate pace while Deane, Simon, John, et al are all capable of reaching escape velocity.

 

MDCC go on an Audax

Dodged the showers today

Simon has written the ride report this week:

Temperatures of up to 28 degrees centigrade, saw a decent turnout at the clocktower of Emmeline, Janette, Simon, Sarah, Taran, prospective member Laurence, Deane, Gurpal, Hewan and Rob I. Andrew made a guest appearance but wasn't planning on sticking with us for long as he had plans to race later on in the day.

A Record turnout!

Twenty six riders turned up this morning at the clock tower

- a record number for any week for the Clock Tower group with some new faces and some people we hadnt seen for years.  And five ladies, which I was really pleased to see.

10 Thames Bridges Audax group ride - Sunday 3rd June

Following our Veldorome trip in April and the sunny ride to the Waterfront Cafe at Benson a couple of weeks ago, our June group ride will be an Audax event.  For those not familiar with them, Audaxes are touring rides, not races, that are run over a wide variety of distances.  Routes are not signposted but you will be given a route sheet and, more frequently now, a gpx track you can follow.
 

Clock tower ride 12th May

Dave and I cycled 300km around London in the cold and wet doing the London Revolution Ultra yesterday, so we were not out this morning.

So, instead of me waffling on as normal, we have a guest author this week! Over to Hewan...
