On Sunday 17th Rob D took part in the East District Championship 100 mile Time Trial. The first rider set off at 06:01 and as this took place on the B100/4 course around Wymondham in Norfolk, it was an early start both for Rob and for Graham M who acted as his "helper".

Rob's time of 4:09:04 was a creditable result bearing in mind that the wind picked up a bit as it got hotter and hotter.......and he was 5 minutes 20 seconds faster than his recent ECCA 100 mile ride. He finished in the top third of the field of 80 riders.

Good ride Rob!

Saturday evening 16th July saw Ken, Sparky and John join about 7000 other riders in tackling the Dunwich Dynamo. They picked up the ride at Chingford and pedalled through the night, with three short stops to re-fuel, arriving at the beachfront cafe at 04.59 on the Sunday morning.


Luckily they found the queues at the cafe fairly short and they were able to enjoy their pasties and sausage rolls as the sun was rising and other riders were rolling in. They had covered the 105 miles in 5 hours, 55 minutes, giving them an average of 17.7mph. Fortunately they had arranged transport for the way home!

Well done guys.

On Sunday 26th June on the E34 course, Dan S and John W tackled the Counties 10 in conditions more suited to March than June.

The early morning drizzle had left the road damp and with a cross-wind, both of the riders were about 2 minutes off their respective PBs. Additionally, the road surface of the A128 has deteriorated even further and there were some sizeable pots to negotiate. Times were:

Dan S        23:57

John W     27:04

But at least they both finished safely!

On Saturday 21st May on the E2 course, Rob D and John W tackled the latest ECCA 10 mile Time Trial in the afternoon. It was a tough outbound ride with a gusty SW headwind, but after the turn at Four Went Ways it gave them a push home. As first solo rider off, John escaped the rain showers that made it even more interesting for those further down the startsheet (like Rob!)

Provisional times were

John W 27:12

Rob D   23:20
