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.

Original Box Hill Sportive 2017

Original Box Hill Sportive 2017

Ranjit Bahra reports:

On Sunday 8th October I rode in the Box Hill Wiggle Super series sportive in the Mecca of cycling that is the Surrey Hills. A very different route to past events with Box Hill featuring in the latter half rather than within a quarter of a mile from the start. Great weather for a testing route consisting of numerous undulations with multiple short sharp ramps and ascents but the real climbing started after 55 miles with multiple back-back climbs including Box Hill then Ranmore Common and numerous other cimbs.

A great day out, 102 miles/ 6352 feet climbing.
