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.

Blazing Saddles - May 2014

We're just over half way through the Blazing Saddles competition for 2014 with records being broken all over the place by passionate riders pushing harder than the before to get out on their bikes regularly. Here's a quick run down of the competition at the end of May.

Alan Baxter is still leading the gents competition with a record 117 points, the only person to have currently passed the 100 point barrier. Jim Brown is in second on 99 points and Robert Finney sits quite a way behind on 58 points.

In the ladies, Jackie Cooper is in first place with 52 points, just 1 point ahead of second place Lynn Bonnici on 51. Third place is currently held by Elaine Walker on 47 points.

There's been a shake up in the Junior competition with both Lauren and Kieran Higham having completed 18 rides but Lauren being just ahead of her brother on 22 points while Kieran is on 19. Zoe Nuttall is in a comfortable third place with 15 points.

For the full list of riders and points, please check out the May release below.

Circular Needs Help

Organiser Jim is getting worried - we need helpers to man checkpoints at Hexton and Vanstone Park Garden Centre.

Without help these events cannot be run - If you dont plan to ride come along socialise with lots of riders and help!
