Club Run Report 2nd March 2014
The first Sunday of March brought with it the first tentative signs of spring, and a healthy turnout of over 30 riders - especially considering that the 'No Excuses' sportive which ran the day before - met on the Market Square to give Richard Ostler's northwesterly routes another crack.
Sunday 22nd February 2014
The forecast was heavy skies with a blustery SSW wind (again) but that didn’t deter a reasonable number from forming at the square with six of us setting of on the long route, perhaps an opportunity for some last minute cramming before the opening NCRA race on the following weekend.
Wet Wet Wet - 26th Jan '14
(Older readers may quibble that the Wets' biggest hit was a cover version of a 1960's hit, but we'll save any mention of 'Troggs' until any future adventures take us near to Corby).
16th February 2014
Despite the glorious break in the weather the short ride only attracted 3 riders (including myself) to the Market Square, but nonetheless a big welcome to Eva and David. We were expecting regular rider Colin but rumours of an early puncture suggested he might be delayed, or was it just an elaborate ploy to avoid the slog back up Paxton Hill?
Report for Sunday 19th January
For the first Sunday in a while it was frost-free and 45 riders (including a few new faces) gathered at the Market Square. Welcome to (Spaldwick) Paul, (Sandy) David, Adrian & Dan Smith (and friend) who I hope enjoyed themselves and weren’t put off too much by what they experienced. Welcome back to Robin, Rita & Joanna too.
Club Run Report - Sunday 12th January
Another Sunday in January, another frosty morning for the 30+ riders who gathered in the Market Square ready to do battle with the elements for this week's club run.
Club Run Report - Sunday 5th January
Another cold winter's day awaited today's visitors to the Market Square for the first club run of the year. We initially decided to use Richard's routes from the previous week but as there was ice on the roads again, we approached them with a 'wait-and-see' attitude. Two groups went out on the 42 mile medium length route, one went out for a longer run while another group decided to take the shorter run. Overall we had about 30 riders - not bad for a Sunday in the depths of winter.
Report on the New Year's Day club run
Take one Irishman, one Welshman, two Scotsmen and 16 Englishmen and what do you have? An excellent combination for a New Year's Day club ride.
Sunday 29th December
It was one of those cold, crisp, sunny winter days, but with white, ice sprinkled roads, that greeted the 20 or so riders who gingerly made their way to the Market Square for the last club run of the year. Thoughts of safety first were in our minds as we decided to forego the pre-advertised route (sorry Richard!) and stick to busier roads to minimise the risk of fallers (at the time of writing, I'm unaware of anyone coming off so a sound choice in retrospect).
St Neots Market Square was bristling with close on 50 riders from St Neots CC, St Ives CC and others all out to help raise money for the Philippine Disaster Fund. The ride was suggested by St Neots CC member, Jonathan Pang.
