Ride bikes. Have fun. Feel good.

Evening Ten

There was a fantastic atmosphere for this evenings Tuesday Time Trial on the 10 mile Circuit round Horne Park Golf Club.

For a seemingly rare change, the weather was warm, dry and sunny!

Amongst another packed time sheet of 31 riders, we welcomed some more eager new TT riders in Jiv, Agnes, and James, who set some brilliant benchmarks, going incredibly deep for their first efforts for a great HIIT session!

There were also some new Personal Bests set and some exciting shiney new bikes and aero gear getting their debut Time Trail outings!

It’s also amazing to see Female riders were also well represented with with 7 riders on Tuesday. Domie deserves a special mention as she put in a phenomenal effort, especially having recently overcome Covid. 👏

A big thank you to Chris, Steve and Luke for Time Keeping (and keeping track of a bunch finish), Przemek and Oliver for the brilliant photos and support, Paul and Peter for Marshalling the corners and Paul for holding up the riders at the start!
