Stony ‘11.2’ 24/8/16

A warm and humid evening saw 17 riders line up for the last evening event in the 2016 time trial series. The weather seemed continually about to break into rain, with short spells of light rain which fortunately didn’t amount… Continue reading →

Brogborough ’10’ 17/8/16

With the Astwood circuit (and the Stagsden course) still sidelined by the weak bridge for which the current remedy appears to be to install traffic lights, it was something of a relief to be able to shift this evening’s event… Continue reading →

Finsbury Park CC ’25’ 14/8/16

After the previous weekend’s ’25’ on the F1B/25 (the Beds Road CC), for which the meteorological conditions were challenging to say the least, I had high hopes for this ’25’, on the same course. On the morning, it was cloudy… Continue reading →

Stoke Hammond ’10’ 10/8/16

For once in the 2016 season, one of the NBRC club events was (a) held in quite nice conditions, and (b) was not affected by roadworks or other road closures! This was also the NBRC Club ’10’ Championships and saw… Continue reading →

Beds Road CC ’25’ 7/8/16

Rather a windy morning on the F1B/25 for this event, and mostly it manifest itself as an unhelpful sidewind! There’s a website which uses the weather forecast to predict conditions for a given time trial – MyWindsock – so actually I… Continue reading →

2016 Summer Tour

Rather later than usual, we went off for another jaunt round the Outer Hebrides on our trusty tandem. We decided on island hopping once again because it seemed likely that CalMac would lose the bidding for the ferry contract to… Continue reading →

Stoke Hammond ’10’ 29/6/16

This blog’s been a bit quiet lately – I missed a couple of club events due to weather and having visitors, rode the Stony course twice (the the NBRC website for those), and missed the cut for a couple of… Continue reading →

Stoke Hammond ’10’  11/5/16

There was rain forecast for this day, but nothing prepared us for the scale of the late afternoon downpour! Fortunately the rain had long stopped by the time we assembled for this evening’s club event, which had been relocated from… Continue reading →

Norlond ’50’ 8/5/16

This event was held on the F1B/50, and was my first ’50’ for a few years. It was also a lovely morning, though a bit chilly at the start – it was enough for me to put arm warmers on,… Continue reading →

Astwood ’10’ 4/5/16

At last, we had a splendid sunny and war evening, and 29 riders turned out, including several new members! Not too much to report (particularly since I am posting this several days after the event!), but I recall feeling pretty good…. Continue reading →
