Blazing Saddles - June 2013 Update

Thankfully the sunshine has stayed with us for the month of June and allowed us to have some great rides in the company of the lovely sunshine. June's rides list was packed full of rides to compliment Bike Week and we had a great turnout of riders.

Alan Baxter is still holding onto the lead in the mens on 97 points with Jim brown holding on to second place with 89 and Richard Button is still securely in third place on 67. Will we see our first two riders to reach 100 points each for this year in July?

In the ladies, Lynn Bonnici is still in first place with 65 points. Elaine Walker is holding on to second on 59 and Jackie Cooper is not far behind on 55 points.

In the juniors we have Lauren Higham is in first place and has started to pull away with the lead again on 24 points behind Sean Browne who has 21. Kieran Higham is in third place on 14 points and looks to stay in third place with a huge lead over fourth place.

Sat 29th June - Off Road Cancelled

Hello everyone,

After riding the off-road route today during the bad weather conditions it has been decided that the off-road ride will not go ahead tomorrow because I feel it is unsafe and too dangerous to use the route that was planned when wet and I would rather not risk the chance of riders coming off their bikes.

The on-road route will still go ahead as normal leaving Costello's at 2pm and heading to Tewin Fete for anyone who wishes to ride tomorrow. Those who had planned to ride the off-road are more than welcome to join the on-road route instead.

Daniel Moore,
Stevenage & NH CTC Ride Leader.
