Emitremmus is done for another year

British Summer Time ended this morning, so that meant it was time for hundreds of cyclists to descend on Stevenage for the start of the Emitremmus events.

Over 300 cyclists started, and provisionally completed, either the 101KM Emitremmus Desrever, or 67KM Emitremmus Lite, despite the dismal weather forecast.

Many people reported a strong headwind home but otherwise an enjoyable route and even the rain held off for most of the day.

Unfortunately, numbers were down on last year but we look forward to 2014 for a return of, at the least, pleasant weather and another excellent year of cycling for Great Britain.

Thank you as always, to the huge number of volunteers who gave up their time before the event to get everything ready, and of course those who gave up their Sundays at the start, controls and the finish that allowed this event to take place. Finally, to the riders who made the trip to Stevenage (some made a very long trip!), thank you!
