June had some fantastic weather and little rain, making our Bike Week rides and other events a huge success and helping us break records with the number of riders who have been riding with us recently. Here's a quick run down of the Blazing Saddles competition at the end of June.

Alan Baxter is leading the gents competition with an astonishing 145 points, a long way ahead of Jim Brown in second place with 121. Robert Finney sits in third with 76 points but Peter Woolmer is closing the gap on 64.

In the ladies, Lynn Bonnici has taken back first place with 68 points while Jackie Cooper who was first last month now sits on 62. Elaine Walker sits in third for the ladies with a comfortable 58 points, 10 ahead of Jill Borcherds on 48.

The juniors competition has had another shake up with Kieran no longer sitting in first and now falling below his sister Lauren Higham with 29 points while Kieran has 22. Zoe Nuttall is in third with 18 points but Robert Dixon and Chloe Markham are not far behind on 13 points each.

Circular update (12th June)

Online entries for the Circular have now closed.

With just a few days left until the event on Sunday 15th June postal entries are already closed unless they are already in the postal system and we have just turned off online entries today at 6:30pm.

The only way to ride the Circular now is to turn up on the day and pay the 10 entry fee as long as there are brevet cards spare. We recommend that anyone desperately wanting to ride arrives early in the hope to guarantee themselves a brevet card.

A list of riders split into the starting groups is likely to be posted up over the next few days in advance so riders can see which start group they are in.

We look forward to seeing all the riders on Sunday. =)

Carlton Grand Tour needs a new home.

Martyn Leader has contacted us about finding his Carlton Grand Tour a new home. The bike is generally in good condition well equipped. However it is in need of a good clean, service and new rubber. He think's it is a 22" frame.

He's not looking to sell it but rather to pass it on to a new home where it will get used. It's probably more suited to a "mature" rider although anyone is welcome to register interest. He's suggested that maybe a donation to an agreeable cancer charity for the bike may be a more appropriate idea.

If you are interested then please contact us through our contact page and we can pass you on to Martyn as we don't want to openly post his contact details in the article.
