Although the weather was not as nice as yesterday, it was still warm enough to bring out one of our largest groups for a while - 3 new riders and 9 regulars left the clock tower at 0900 this morning.

 

Bird Hills Group Ride 25th March

Despite the loss of one hours sleep five members, Andrew, Brett, Mark, Mike and Pete, arrived at Bird Hills for the Sunday ride.

We headed off steadily to Twyford with Andrew and Mike setting the pace. At the cross roads we turned towards Sonning Eye with Brett and Andrew taking the lead. This set the tone for the ride, with these two pulling the rest of us around. As we headed up Dunston first Mike and then Mark got gapped, but we soon re-grouped at the top.

Clock tower run March 11th 2018 - Spring has sprung

A mild start to the day brought out Simons shorts and short sleeve jersey - most of us were still in tights though and I had a waterproof layer on ready for the forecast showers - that had to come off at the top of Crimp Hill as I was starting to boil in the bag! What a gorgeous morning!

Bird Hills Club Ride 18 Feb 2018 - Diesel on road causes a tumble!

Six of us met at Bird Hills despite the early morning drizzle - Brett, Rob H, Rob O’Keefe, Peter, Guy and Andrew. Andrew was on a cycling curfew, due to an injured rib, so left us at the start to meet up with the Clock Tower group.

It soon stopped raining and we were led by Brett for almost the entirety of the ride. We made our way to Henley via Twyford and Playhatch, then up Stonor towards Christmas Common.

We then turned right at the Nettlebed junction and through Nuffield and Stoke Row before going through Harpsden and back into Henley.

MDCC's Super G

Many of you may have seen Geraint Thomas consolidating his lead of the Tour of Algarve on the stage 3 TT. However, the big talking point should have been MDCC’s Super G (John Gibson) getting in on the act, as the photo below proves. Here you can see John, in full club kit, taking a photo so he can point out to Geraint where he could improve!

Well done John look forward to seeing more of your photo’s.
