Clarion "100 Up" Ride
Eight Fenland riders took part in the “100 Up” ride on Sunday 28 August 2022. A lovely sunny day started with a 42 mile ride out to Hickling Basin, north of Melton Mowbray, where we met up with riders from Tuxford Clarion (along with one brave representative from Nottingham!)
The Tuxford Clarion members proved to be entertaining company in the cafés and on the road. We found ourselves comparing notes on group rides and the intricacies of club organisation, among other things. Tuxford Chair, Ian Clarke, took charge of proceedings for the joint ride section of the day. Mr Clarke divided the riders into B and C groups (clearly thinking nobody deserved the A rating). Ian, Rich and Phil joined the B group for a very fast (and hilly) 30 mile ride to the second café stop near Belton House. The C group followed on at a more civilised pace and arrived 19 minutes later. Both of the day’s cafés, the Old Wharf tea rooms in Hickling and the Syston Park Farm shop, were excellent.
Wednesday 17th August saw the 12th and last Bluebell time trial of the 2022 season. It was followed by the Bluebell Supper with prize-giving, sandwiches and some excellent cakes!

A Tribute to Richard Daniells
Members, especially those who ride open time trials, will be sad to hear of the untimely death of Richard Daniells.
Richard was cycling home to Rothwell from a CTC meet in Desborough on Tuesday and was in collision with a car on the road between Glendon and Rothwell. He was taken to Coventry Infirmary where he died later that day from his injuries.
Richard was the lynchpin of everything timetrialling in CTT South East Midlands District. He was chairman and treasurer of South East Midlands District and fulfilled the same roles for Northampton and District Cycling Association. 2020 marked his 50 years as N&DCA treasurer. He was timekeeper for most open events in South East Midlands.
He organised events locally and nationally. In 2009 he was awarded a Badge of Honour by Cycling Time Trials and he was a member of the CTT National Appeals Committee.
He will be hugely missed.
(CTT South East Midland District Secretary)
[Richard's funeral was held at the Edgar Newman Chapel, Kettering Crematorium, on Tuesday 12th July. Richard's wife requested that his cycling friends should wear their cycling kit for the ceremony as a fitting tribute to Richard.]
