Rob D took part in the ECCA Open 12 hour Time Trial on Sunday 14th August. On a warmish day with a variable breeze the field of 60 riders cruised around 4 circuits with noisy support from Club members; Graham was there to keep Rob fuelled up throughout the day.

Rob had a good ride with a personal best on this course of 260.9 miles, riding strongly around the final circuit and catching many other riders. The event was won by Richard Bideau ( Pendle Forest CC) who clocked up 305 miles.

When Dan S and John W had last ridden the E34 course on 26th June you could have easily mistaken the weather for April.

Now, on Sunday 24th July the conditions were much improved with warm sunshine  and just an increasing cross-wind to deal with.

As a result both riders improved on their June times by approx 30 seconds.

Times were:

Dan S        23:21

John W     26:39

They still had to endure the poor road surface of the A128 however!

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.
