A Quick Chat With Les One Of Our Senior Members

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

A: I started cycling “properly” in 2008. Had bikes on a couple of occasions previous to that but did not cycle much. I was a keen squash, cricket and football player but age caught up with me so was looking for another sport. A work colleague encouraged me. Squash damaged me a bit as I have had two hip operations. Like Andy Murray has had.

Can three groups meet at Velolife??

The first weekend of Spring brought out lots of us this morning - finally the wind has dropped, the sun is out and the temperature is rising.  A couple of the usual clock tower riders took the opportunity to ride out with the Bird Hills group and by all accounts cruised round the 60 miles plus at a speed of over 19mph.  The rest of us met at the Clock Tower at the usual time.  Tom had offered to take a medium-fast group over a hilly 55 miles (average 16-5mph), and the rest of us were set to do a 40 mile route (average 14-16mph).

Stolen Bikes. Can you help?

 

In the early hours of Sunday morning one of our members, who lives in Shurlock Row, had their garage broken into and three valuable bikes were stolen. The bikes are those in the photos attached to this post, and the details of their spec is below:

Need a secure storage "unit" for all your bikes

The club have been contacted by Crane Garden Buildings at Sunningdale (https://www.cranegardenbuildings.co.uk/ ), who are  am looking to forge alliances with cycling clubs to offer their members their high quality Sheds and Garden Studios for storage of their N+1 bikes in a nice dry environment that could also be their all year round Turbo Trainer/Zwift space away from the house.
