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.
Gill Reynolds rode the Banbury Star ’25’ and finished in 1:10:36.

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.
