The Willesden Reliability Ride

103 riders set off and 91 came back. The rider feedback has generally been very positive. This was due to all the help I, the organiser, got. The excellent catering organised by Vyv Baker and Janice Kelly, aided by John Davies, Paul and Sylvene Baxter and Sue Palmer. Ray Kelly and Stuart Birnie manned check-in. Tony Flynn and Wendy and Jim Mears put up the navigation arrows the day before. I take sole responsibility for choosing Jungle Green Camouflage as an arrow colour – it increased ride challenge, but perhaps not in a good way. Finally, a thanks for the help and advice from Ray and Wendy that allowed me to get the ride off the ground quickly.

There were four time bands for riders to attempt ride within and the lists below show who made it. If you were back just in time, but lingered outside HQ for  a while you might not show up.
