Anthony Maynard Reliability Trial Report Sunday 25th Feb 2018

Anthony Maynard Reliability Trial Report Sunday 25th Feb 2018

A magnificent turnout in the chilly sunshine on Sunday 25th, at the final count, there were 82 riders! Even including Dave's contingent from Minehead I think this is still up on previous years. 
Thanks to helpers, Doug Aspinall, Peter Stocker and Kevin Buckley who kept things running smoothly on the day, and brought additional materials for the start setup.
Doug has totted up the donations and after subtracting costs on the day, the two charities Thames Valley Air Ambulance and World Society for Protection of Animals will each receive half of £209.70. Thanks everyone.

Tenerife Training

Mike Fenwick and Greg Woodford went for a week to Tenerife. Here is Mike's summary.

I expected to work hard on a week’s training in Tenerife but managed a bit more than expected.
The weather was ideal and when I am paying to hire a bike (Ridley) I am certainly going to use it.
Greg Woodford and I booked Hotel El Medano in the small town of El Medano on the coast.
Tenerife is unique in that you can be constantly climbing for 2 – 3 hours.
There are not too many roads up the mountain so we would invariably end up at the Parador at over 2000 m for refreshments.

Much of our experience of cycling concerns struggle. Struggle to keep up. Struggle to keep going. Struggle to keep the bike going. When it comes to dealing with a recalcitrant velo, the number #1 item on the snagging list is the tyre and its ability to provide a safe ride without unwelcome deflation.
