Thanks Simon. That 39:29 included a mechanical! My best time was 37:13 I think, from 2012, which of course doesn't count here.

Despite Si Woodward's best efforts, my bike didn't work as a fixie, so a walk/roll into Bewdley and then public transport was the best I could manage. Hope the rest of the ride ...

Re: Club runs - 31st March

Following some gentle encouragement from Mr Woodward, I'll lead a ride to Clows Top. The route out is a hilly one via Bewdley, Button Oak and Cleobury Mortimer. On the way back, we'll go via Heightington and Stourport. I'll post a route if I can. It's a hilly one with arrival time around 11:30-11:45...

Re: Club runs - 8th April

The intro rides are the first Sunday of the month; unfortunately that's bad timing as the next one is on 6th May. You could perhaps come to a C run and peel off if it's too hard going; besides we go at the pace of the slowest rider so if anyone struggles they don't get left behind.
