Waltham St Lawrence cc234 10-mile TT 28 April 2015

Here is the result of this evening’s time trial. I thought it was quite a hard night, bright but with a chilly west wind. By comparison to the same course two weeks ago, quite a few people went back, I sure did. Our Gen Sec Paddy Ashcroft is quietly gathering some impressive speed, though, and Rob Thompson also improved for a new PB. I see a few Come and Try It riders are becoming regulars, perhaps it’s time to pay Reading CC’s very modest joining fee and become a member? One ride stands out, James Churchard is finding another level and despite hassle from a randomly enraged 4x4 driver dipped under 23 minutes for a mightily impressive 22:58. I must mention also Emma Grant's cracking near-25 mph ride.

Another beautiful Spring evening saw 34 riders tackle the Twyford 10-mile circuit. Results are below.  Twyford is a bit lumpier than Waltham St Lawrence and that shows in slightly slower times in general, all apart from James Churchard.

Waltham St Lawrence 10-mile TT 14 April 2015, Result

This evening's sun and warmth brought out the crowds with a bigger turnout than any event at all last summer. Warren Davies and Dave Gaida had their hands full starting and timing 30 riders each of whom passed the finish line three times. Too many results to comment much on particular rides although Jim Watchorn was well out in front and takes an early lead in the Dave Finch competition and Dave Ridge was on a mission.

Excellent conditions for tonight’s event at Twyford, sunny and dry, very little wind, 16C. Warren Davies and Dave Gaida officiated, thanks guys, there’d be no race without you. 11 riders showed up and it was encouraging to find a couple of ‘come and try it’ riders present, I hope they enjoyed the experience (I think they did) and it would be excellent if they become regulars.

Waltham St Lawrence 10-mile TT Tuesday 31/3/15 - result

Here is the result from last evening's 10-mile TT on the WSL circuit.

Good to see Jim Watchorn turning a competitive pedal again after being out with injury last year. Thanks go to Dave Gaida who pushed off and Warren Davies who timed.

Time-trial Saturday 21 March Maidenhead Thicket 10 miles - result

Reading CC’s 2015 programme of time-trials got underway today on the H10/2 Maidenhead Thicket course on Saturday 21st March. 11 riders faced the timekeeper, the cool and grey conditions perhaps not encouraging to those with wavering motivation. The event ran smoothly for all concerned.
