Norlond ’10’ F15/10 5/5/18

So now I’ve started, I’ll continue! This event was held on a spectacularly sunny and warm afternoon. I rode over to the HQ in Lidlington. This was a pleasant ride marred only by a puncture  just after riding through Ridgmont…. Continue reading →

Astwood ’10’ 2/5/18

The 2018 season has been pretty awful so far. I had not completed a single one of the NBRC events (which began in early March). Roughly speaking, these fell out as follows: Sat 3rd March, Astwood – Event abandoned due… Continue reading →

Port Talbot Wheelers 2-up ’25’ 11/3/18

Team Grumpy assemble for two regular events each season – aside from the Duo Normand in September, the team generally opens the season with a ride at the Port Talbot Wheelers 2-up ’25’ in early March. 2018 was no exception…. Continue reading →

Astwood ’10’ 3/3/18

It’s been a while since I updated this blog. After the 2017 season finished, I began my usual winter training programme – after a short break I started a build up towards the New Year’s Day ’10’. Unfortunately a series… Continue reading →

Stoke Hammond ’10’ 31/5/17

After a couple of weeks without racing (and indeed a week off the bike), I turned out for the club ’10’ on a sunny evening at the end of May. I’ve been getting a little concerned about the downturn in… Continue reading →

Lea Valley ’25’ E2/25 8/4/17

Just a brief report here, drafted a month late. This event was run on a lovely spring afternoon, very warm and dry. A bit breezy, but no too bad. I’d travelled over with James, and we were about an warming… Continue reading →

Brogborough ’10’ 5/4/17

Quite breezy for this morning’s time trial on the F15/10. Having “missed out” on the previous weekend’s Hardriders event (I marshalled in Woburn Sands), it was good to get the cobwebs blown off. From home it’s only a few miles… Continue reading →

Team Salesengine ’10’ F2D/10 1/4/17

I had reasonable hopes for this event – it’s a nice DC course with a smooth turn at the Cambridge end. I travelled out with Katja, who’s start was (as I recall) about 4 minutes after me. It was fairly… Continue reading →

Stoke Hammond ’10’ 18/3/17

This was the first event of the season with a major effort required for placing warning signs. Nathan and I went round placing signs – the whole exercise took rather too long and left me with a bit of a… Continue reading →

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 →
