Another astonishing week for 3C with our members yet again travelling far and wide to race, take part in sportives and even cheer on the pro's!
Monday 27th saw Zoe Taylor giving it her all on the P885 25 mile TT. She walked away as the 3rd female with an excellent time of 1:02:29.
Martin Balk one again showing strong results on his TT bike at the Cardiff 25 mile TT at Usk, setting a time of 1:10:55 in the wind rain and thunder - an impressive 'Rule 5' ride!
Saturday 2nd saw Martin Balk and Nick O'Hara heading over to Wales National Velodrome. More info and results to follow!
Sunday the 3rd started incredibly early for one of our riders. Becky Croton was part of the 'Dawn Raid' cycling 100 miles from HMS Victory in Portsmouth to the Imperial War Museum in London. This epic ride was all done in the aid of the charity 'Help the Heroes' and after 4 punctures within 3 miles, a broken valve and a 2 mile walk to the mechanic she crossed the line. Exceptional work!
Meanwhile across the channel in France, Ian Sherin and Ant Gahr set off on a 100+ mile ride in miserable conditions. Their aim; to cheer on the pro's in the Tour de France. Doing their own stage, they set off to find a good spot on the course and watch the jerseys go past. Good work chaps!
Closer to home, 3C riders took part in the UKCE Wiggle New Forest Conqueror. Teams of riders took to both the Standard and Epic courses in the glorious southern sunshine. Chris S, Chris L, Steve, Simon, Tom, Em, Faith and Sarah all rode, showing the forest how its done!
