10tt on 13th August H10/10 Drift Road - Information

We have got a large field of about 50 riders..

We will email out a start list around Wednesday lunch time with your number and start time.  This is likely to be based on the order the emails are received. Last week I received a serious complaint from Bird Hill Golf club, which I am currently addressing as the person responible for suggesting parking thier without formal approval.

Q. When and what caused you to start cycling?

A. I grew up at a time when all children cycled!  I regularly cycled to school (2 miles each way) from the age of 12.  Age 18 I spent one year living with parents 30 miles from university, and cycled that a few times a week.  My first "serious distance" ride aged 19 was Dudley to Dawlish (~200 miles).

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:
