DRAGON RIDES

We had 5 in the Gran Fondo (Jed Ellerby, Chris Goslar, Ranjit Bahra, Peter Tizzard and myself, with Nick Treston and David Ebdon in the Medio. In addition Cindy Goslar rode the Macmillan 100 in the same area.

Brian Perry
I had a really enjoyable ride on the GF - it's a great route, though pretty windy on the day. I'm planning to ride it next year. (4th/5 in my age cat so there's room for improvement!)

19s are a thing now on the Maidenhead Thicket course. Chris Bartley scorched past the finish less than 20 minutes after leaving

H10/2 Maidenhead Thicket 10-mile Time Trial result

A lovely evening tempted 24 people to sign on. Haydn, riding in a new RCC skinsuit, was well clear of the rest but there were good rides throughout the field with quite a few riding their road bikes.

Here is a collection of the individual reports made by our members in the past two month. If I have missed your ride please email or fb message me with your update.

Brian

Duncan Patterson and Kevin Buckley 1st April Tour of Flanders
Duncan reports:
Yesterday saw me and my rather experienced RCC jersey take on the Koppenberg and more in the Flanders sportive. Managed to ride the whole thing except the top 50m of the Patterberg when a mass slow tumble sideways in front of me blocked my way. 20% cobbles in SPD-R are interesting.

Reading CC time trial Tuesday 16 May, H10/1 Aldermaston

A warm but dull evening attracted a decent field of 17 riders. Rain held off and JC put together power and slipperiness to finish well clear of the field. Nice to see Ray & Wendy getting a tandem ride. Congrats to 15 year-old Arthur Boulton of PPV for getting inside 24 minutes.

Big thanks go to Luca and Greg for running the start and Brian and Graham for timing us at the finish. My thanks also to all the riders who were well behaved in what can be a trafficky start area.
