Glad’s Tiding – w/e of 11/12 August 07

Sorry I am a bit late with the results, but after getting up at 4.30am on Sunday to stand on the roundabout at Chawton to marshall the West London C.A. 100 mile event I was too tired to tackle the computer on Sunday night. It was a special event to mark the 100 years of the WLCA and Ed Packard marked the occasion by making this his first ride at the distance. He finished in 13th place with a time of 4.20.29. There was a few showers but it wasn’t too windy and only 6 riders out of over 50 starters failed to finish.

Earlier in the week Gill Reynolds and Brian Moon rode in the London Vets 10 at Fifield. Gill was the fastest lady witha 26.49 and Brian recorded 29.56.

The Vets road racers were in action at Hillingdon and in the fastest race of the season so far -26.5mph – Tony Woodford and Chris James finished in the main bunch. Tony finished in 3rd place in his age group.

Gill rode on Sunday in the Finsbury Park 25 at Sandy recording her fastest 25 mile time of the season a 1.05.09.

    Apart from having to ride 100 miles in a TT position, I really enjoyed Sunday! The WLCA had put on an excellent event, with a huge amount of food and drink afterwards, much appreciated. It was also good to see Gladys and Ron at the Chawton roundabout, so thanks to them for marshalling and all the other people who got up at stupid o’clock on a Sunday to help out. Very good event, and a real sense of history!
