Sunday
Peter Dixon and Stuart Birnie rode the Southern Counties CU ‘100’ on the G100/60. Quite a tough course apparently. Peter did an excellent 4:16:18 for 15th place. Stuart did 4:52:20 for 54th place. Stuart rode the event in his daps and even managed to incorporate an extra six miles – read the whole remarkable story, and a report of the hill climb, here. The event was won by Rob Pelham of Lewes Wanderers in 3:52:40.

TT Secretary
I’ve been inundated with requests for information from people interested in doing the job of TT Secretary for next season. Rather than reply individually I thought I’d address some of the major points here…

  • The post is unpaid
  • There is no company car
  • You do not get the free use of a bungalow
  • You are still allowed to ride road races and ‘other cycling stuff’
  • There are no tattoos involved

Still interested? Do get in touch for a chat about the job.

Lance Woodman (TT Secretary)
