Cycling Christmas Ride

Currently the conditions on many tracks are very muddy and the cover of leaves hides many sharp objects that can puncture tyres.
Unfortunately David Riley was unlucky enough to get a puncture on 2 consecutive weeks.

However with his crack support team on hand he was back on the road in 15 minutes. Next week it is our Christmas ride meeting starting from the Leisure Centre at 9am.

Congratulations to the Cyling Group

Seven members of the cycling group completed the classic ‘Friar Tuck’ 50 miles at the annual Nottingham Cycle Live event on Sunday 25th June.
Conditions were good with dry weather and a breeze that varied from slight to stiff depending on whether it was assisting from behind or in our faces.
It is great event with approximately 3,500 participants of all ages and types of cycle.

Well done to Val Gant, Angela Cornish, John Saunders, Roy Beadle, Jim Spray, David Riley and myself.

We will be back next year with an even bigger team.

Cycling News

We have continued to ride each Wednesday in some rather frosty and usually muddy conditions.

Our route on the 11th January turned into something of a quagmire when we followed a continuation of the Newstead trail to the newly designated country park.  This is work in progress, all on reclaimed colliery land that incorporates two fishing lakes.  It is well worth a visit especially when the construction of the large wind turbine is complete.

However we do look forward to the relatively warmer months and to date five members are signed up for the 50-mile Great Notts Cycle Ride on June 25, 2017.
