It’s taken a while (they’ve not been on the site for a long while), but you can find them here (link).
Take a look and see what great times are the fastest our members have done and who holds the various Club records.
2017 has been another fast year and riders across the board have been seen to produce some impressive times, not least of all Club Champion Paul Lunn.
Paul has been sizzling form all year, winning almost all of the club events and set new club records for the Bluebell Circuit (20.45) and also the 100 mile with 3.40.11, beating the old record by almost a quarter of an hour.
Meanwhile Paul Lilley, Steve Kaye and Richard Moys eclipsed the nine year old Men’s 25 mile team record by 7.14 on the same day in September.
Not to be outdone Lindsay Clarke broke the Women’s 10 mile record twice in 2017, beating her own 23 year old record with 22.02 and then 21.59 (same day in September, it must have been a fast day!) on the super quick V718 course in Yorkshire.

The fun start at 6.30 and we'll be finished by 8.30. Spectators are very welcome and tea & coffee will be available, so if you dont fancy riding you can always come down and socialise with your clubmates. If you do want to ride it would bemost helpful if you could let Malc know in advance, although we'll take entries on the night subject to availability. Its £4 to take part to help us cover our costs.
This Friday we will be having our regular youth coached session with a few extras thrown in for good measure.
