Peaslake and Cake Social Ride - Sun 14th Aug

I am inviting everyone to join me on a club members ride on Sunday August 14th. The idea is to head down as a group to Peaslake for cake at the local tea shop. Their cakes are renowned in the area for both road and off-road riders alike, it's well worth the trip!

H30/1 - 30 Mile Club Championship - Results

A beautiful warm sunny morning greeted the following club riders to contest the championship. It was a little more gusty than the forecast suggested but it made for a great tail wind at times.


Andrew Payne - 01:09:29

Joe Francis - 01:11:20

Mike Henley - 01:16:57

Stu Auckland - DNF - punctured at ~29 miles. What a shame as at the half way point I was in the top 3 which were seperated by ~30 seconds. At least the walk back was short, sunny and flat :-)


Peter Harrison Breaks H10/2 Course Record

At this evening's 10 on the H10/2, GS Henley's Peter Harrison demolished the course record with a storming ride of 19:40

Vätternrundan 2016

For the 4th year running a group from the club made a trip to Sweden last weekend for the Vätternrundan.  This year's team was Sarah, Magnus, Dave B and me.

Hounslow & District 100 Results

Four club members raced the H100/88 yesterday. It was a dry day although the wind got progressively stronger as the morning continued making the return towards Alton harder. All club members started in relative close proximity so the conditions were the same for everyone.


The notorious A31 ruts claimed it's victims again with Andrew suffering with neck cramp and my back going at the half way point. 


A huge thank you to Vicki Henley for being support and handing out the bottles - much appreciated. 


weekend 7 & 8th racing round up

This weekend saw several of our members doing open timetrials.

Saturday afternoon

Stuart Auckland 21.01 on the E2/10 in Essex  - I'm sure he would loved to be 2 seconds quicker

Andrew Payne  22.17 on H17/10r and hoped to do a 21.xx but best ride of the year so far.

Sunday morning

Joe Francis 2:02:19 on the H50/8 Bentley course and had hoped to going under 2hour for the first time

Mike Henley 2:08:29 on H50/8

Neither liked the brisk easterly wind.
