The next issue of the club newsletter will be out soon. If you have any articles or results that you would like to be featured, please email them to me asap at

Results should if possible show the name of the event, the date and time (and course), the top 3 riders, plus any Lea Valleyites - but any info is better than nothing!

Wish me luck fixing it on the South Downs Way, and I hope those of you riding on Saturday manage to topple Shaftesbury…

Results: Bill Major 25

The Bill Major 25 mile time trial, Sunday 24th July 2005

Traditionally run before the 'club reunion' this year saw kind weather for the race only to be followed by rain which made the reunion a very damp garden party indeed.

Riding his first '25' Patrick Beasant turned in a respectable 1h 21m 43s and at the same time picked up 1st handicap with 47m 43s

Sue Larwood, also riding her first '25' got round in 1h 45m 58s. A slow time we agree, but all credit to Sue, she was riding a heavy mountain bike with a very sit up and beg position.
