Talking Cycling and in particular Road Racing with Guy Davis

 

Guy is now a Second Claim member of the club having joined Thames Velo, as they were better able to support his road racing ambitions. This was a move MDCC fully supported , and was obviously the correct one, as he was successful in gaining 2nd Cat status for next year. Guy still supports the club by joining the Sunday rides when he can, and many of us have had the "pleasure" of being dragged round on his wheel for many miles! So lets find out a bit more about Guy:

Q. Congratulations on the birth of Harry. How are you finding getting back into training

MDCC does PBP

Along with Mike Henley and Sarah Davies, I was one of three members of MDCC who completed the Paris-Brest-Paris Audax last week.  This iconic long-distance ride traces its origins back to 1891 and takes place every four years.  All entrants are required to complete a series of pre-qualifying and qualifying rides of increasing length before attempting to ride the distance of 1,218km from the outskirts of Paris to Brest on the north west coast of Brittany and back in 90 hours or less.

A social ride in memory of David Booth

A few weeks ago I got some of the saddest news I have ever received. David Booth - who rode with us for many years,  who I rode with midweek every week for quite some time, and who a few of us had been to Sweden with a couple of times to do the Vätternrudern, had taken his own life.  He had been struggling for much of his life with mental health issues and we never knew.   It shook me, as well as shaking many of us who had ridden with him and counted him as a friend.

David Booth social ride - this Sunday 19th May

This Sunday we are holding a more social ride of 26 miles that will leave Braywick car park at 9:00am.

The ride will celebrate the life of David Booth who last rode with us on this route one year ago.  With this week being Mental Health Awareness Week, it also gives us an opportunity to chat with each other rather than race up and down the Chilterns like we usually do on a Sunday.  Details have been emailed to all members.  Anyone is welcome to join us, including friends and family, whether you knew David or not.

Q: When did you start and what made you start cycling

A: I started cycling a couple of years ago purely as a means of commuting. But then I realised I actually quite enjoyed it as I love being outside, pushing myself physically but also it's a great chance to just let my thoughts wander and get some headspace after a busy week!

Q: What sort of riding do you enjoy
