Autumn Reliability Trial 2015

A total of 29 riders participated in the RCC Autumn Reliability Ride spread across 4 groups. The effective 1 hour later start due to the clocks changing did not prevent a very cold start, especially for the first rider to turn up at 8.45 for what should have been a 10.00 start, but as the sun broke through the morning quickly warmed up, leaving many well overdressed. 25 riders opted for the 110km route, which took them south from Dinton through Mattingley, Old Basing, Alton and Worldham, before heading back through Kingsley, Bentley, Phoenix Green and Eversley.

Congratulations to Fred Hale

Congratulations to Fred Hale

Reading Cycling Club's Fred Hale successfully completed one his life’s ambitions by riding the famed LEJOG (Land's End to John O' Groats) last week. Fred completed it in ten days, and reported "It was tough and the weather unkind. The route took in predominantly minor roads, and a few cycle routes though the Edinburgh, Liverpool, and Manchester conurbations which took a bit of navigating. The route then went over Glenshee and The Lecht in subzero temperatures and a howling Northerly wind.

Bill Blake Aspirant's Fund

This fund was instigated by long term Reading CC member Bill Blake in 2013. As Bill felt that he was no longer physically able to help at club events he generously donated one of his bikes to the club, the bike was sold and realised £660.

The proceeds of the sale were put to start the fund which is to be used to assist young Reading CC members to further their race ambitions.
