Challenging Touring Rides

Spring has been a busy time for the Touring section, with several challenging rides over increasing distances leading to the 200km Challenge.

This took place last Thursday and had six riders attempt the challenge, starting at Arlington Reservoir at 07:00. We rode our usual figure of eight circuit, in conditions that could only be described as challenging, with strong winds, horizontal rain, thunder and lightning and hail showers.

Three riders made it to the finish, at 19:24, giving a moving average speed of 12.1 mph for the 125 miles.

There will be more challenging touring rides over the next few months.

Happy cycling,

Dave Sutton
