The start of another epic cycling holiday in the alps, this time using electric power on the ascents. A revelation!

Sofa to 50 K complete success

Sofa to 50k successfully completed!
Congratulations to Cherie Davies, David Davies, Philip Hopcroft, Josh Palfreyman, Nic Palfreyman, Fiona McGuckin* and Steve Webster* on completing our inaugural "Sofa to 50k" training programme, culminating with a 50km ride that took in the formidable (for Cambridgeshire!) Barrington Hill (Chapel Hill in Haslingfield) in both directions. Thanks on behalf of all at the club to Nigel Leaney for all the organising, preparing the routes, the certificates and the lion's share of the ride leads.

Gran Fondo 2018

80 mile Tour of Cambridge duly completed by Les, Graham and Paul in unbelievable times. Peloton effect maximised, could have been even better if dehydration had not set in. For full results ....

Gran Fondo ToC 4th June 2017

Yep, more of the same. Left to right Noel, Les, Paul, Phil (Ringer), Robin, Graham, Ken.

Good times achieved - and had - by all. Dom (not pictured) also rode and he and Phil did the 80 miles in roughly 3.5 hours. Robin beat 4 hours in the 60 to 64 category. The rest of us all did better than expected in the Get Round category.

Great pasta on site beforehand seemed to do the trick,

Some of us have already registered for 2018.
