Sunday (14th) group ride.​

Sunday (14th) group ride. The planned ride over the "ditch" into Lincolnshire has had to be dropped due to the Humber Bridge Sportive! 500 riders are scheduled to take part on the roads we were planning to ride. Ken and John felt it prudent to, yet again, re-schedule the ride. A ride will still take place. MEET AT COTTINGHAM GREEN FOR 09.05 FOR A RIDE ON THE NORTH BANK.

Great day for peter Taylor memorial race.​

image Warm and windy conditions greeted the near 50 riders who took to our annual road race held on the Little Weighton Circuit. The early pace, according to race judge, Dave Lambert, was more touring then racing! But from lap three riders started to work for breaks and the pace ramped up. Combined with the persistent wind the bunch was stringing out but soon regrouped as...Read More »

First club record of the season.​

First club record of the season. Conditions on the V718 were finally a little more giving in tonight's second round of the Team Swift 10 League. Club man John Brearley finished a fine fourth overall with a time of 19.22 to beat Jason Youngs previous best by  27 seconds. Well done John!

Missing race numbers.​

Missing race numbers. Could any riders, club or guest, who have ridden our Tuesday evening events recently please check their kit bags / cars as three numbers have gone walkabout! Numbers 25 / 28 and 60 are missing. It is an expensive job to replace them individually or get another full set so their return would be appreciated. No reward just a happy secretary!
