Port Talbot Wheelers 2-up ’25’ 12/3/17

The Port Talbot Wheelers 2-up event is usually my first open event of the season, and the first of Team Grumpy’s two regular 2-up events in the season (the other being the Duo Normand, of course). In recent years, the… Continue reading →

Astwood ’10’ 4/3/17

After the uncertainty around this event, it went off almost without a hitch and with a sizeable turnout of riders. I rode up to the BikeBus in time to see Tony setting out the signs around the start, and then… Continue reading →

New Year’s Day ’10’

This is an event that’s always a good start to the year, despite the generally cold weather: it’s good to blow the cobwebs off, and it’s a change from turbo training! The weather forecast was pretty appalling: heavy rain starting… Continue reading →

Team VeloVelocity ’25’ E2/25 3/9/16

I’d entered this event on the back of a recent 55:40 at the Finsbury Park CC ’25’ on the F1B/25 – I hoped to do a decent ride on a quick course. Of course, after Alex Dowsett’s storming ride on… Continue reading →

Bossard Wheelers ’10’ F11/10

Left to my own devices for the weekend, I decided to ride the 22 or so miles out to the Bossard Wheelers ’10’, held on the F11/10 course out by Tring. I had a slight delay while I tried to… Continue reading →

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 →

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 →

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 →
