Tour of Cambridge TT and Sportive; Ridgeway Rouleur June 4/5th 2016

Robert John Thompson reports
"At the weekend I rode the tour of Cambridgeshire, Saturday chrono (TT) and Sunday Gran Fondo. Though I entered as the Uni team since they were subsidising our travel and hotel. There were certainly other RCC members in each event - not sure anyone else did both.

Oxfordshire Road Race League, Arncott

Duncan Clark, Andy Moon, Jon Jones and David Ivory took part in the opening road race of the Oxfordshire Road Race League on the Arncott circuit near Bicester hosted by Bicester Millennium. The weather was perfect, dry warm with sunny intervals, there was a little breeze but nothing to trouble the bunch. The highlight of the circuit was Panshill, a short steep, Belgium Classics type middle ring climb which would have to tackled seven times, with a Prime on the fourth ascent. Of course with every up comes a down, with a 40mph plus descent of the B4011.

Aldermaston H10/1 TT Tuesday 24 May 2016

After a brief intermission, we're back!

It was a sunny evening but a chilly NE breeze made the return leg hard work in places. Dan Raptor Bigham's ride stands apart but there were many good rides through the field. Nice to see former member and now elite road-racer Joe Harris turning out for a swift ride on his road bike.
