We had a really rather nice morning for the Befordshire Road CC Charity ’25’. This was particularly welcome after a couple of frankly rather soggy and cold events. The sun was shining, and there was only a gentle (but rising) head wind to the turn, and a fast trip back.

The North Bucks fielded three riders at this event – it was nice to have a bit of company from the NBRC at the HQ! I was the last of three to start, and had a decent run to the turn, though I did get delayed at the Sandy roundabout. I made it to the turn in about 30 minutes.

As usual, the return leg was a bit quicker, assisted by the gentle tail wind. I got delayed once again at the Biggleswade North RAB, but was able to fly through the Sandy roundabout in good style! My speed picked up for the last 5 miles, and I think I came past Tempsford looking OK!

I finished with 57:22. David P. finished in 1:00:03 (frustratingly close to getting under the hour), while Andy W. punctured at 15 miles. I think he was rescued and brought back to the HQ – he was certainly there when I finished.
