Blazing Saddles - March 2013 Update

Even though the bitter cold and the snow still surrounded herts during March, the group were keen to not let the weather stop them from cycling as much as possible and managed to get 15 rides in last month with a few cancelled due to severe weather.

Alan Baxter still leads the mens on 43 points with Jim Brown close behind on 39. Both have started to pull away from third place Richard Button who sits on 33 points currently.

There has been a massive change in the ladies since last month as the tie no longer exists and Lynn Bonnici has now jumped into the lead with 32 points, a 9 point lead over second place Elaine Walker on 23 who is very closely followed by Jackie Cooper on 22.

The juniors has started to heat up now and as of the last ride, both Lauren Higham and Sean Browne now sit on 11 points each with third place Kieran Higham on 5.

To see the full results of the Blazing Saddles for March, head on over to our Blazing Saddles page for more information and a downloadable copy of the current scores!

Letchworth Greenway - Live Updates

The Letchworth Greenway is a popular route that makes up part of some of our rides.

Recently, a major update has been made to the website for the Greenway to allow live updates on the state of the route to be made. This can be found at http://www.greenway.org.uk/about-greenway/status-updates. There is a link on this page that takes you to a map which allows you to match up the location numbers against the actual points on the Greenway.

If you are going to be going anywhere near the Greenway on your bike or on foot, we suggest visiting the Greenway and also, take a look at the live updates page to see if there are any problems near that area!

Stevenage Start of Summertime Specials

Paul and I are still in the process of checking back through the hundreds of cards of riders who completed one of the three rides yesterday.

The next stage is for your brevet cards to be checked and double-checked by us within Stevenage & North Herts CTC, and then we have to send the data off to Audax UK who will check and validate your rides.

This will take some time but in the meantime, please consider the Stevenage Circular Cycle on 16th June. Details were available at the finish control yesterday, but stay tuned for more updates regarding entries to this event in the future.
