4th August Interclub 10 mile TT hosted by Lincoln Wheelers.

This event is the annual competition between Gainsborough, Retford and Lincoln. The course is the 10 mile Ingham to Harpswell roundabout and return to finish before the Cammeringham village sign. The H.Q is Aisthorpe village hall between Scampton and Brattleby on the B1398. Start is 7pm but allow enough time to ride to the start which is at the top of Ingham Hill, approx.10-15 minutes. Each rider needs to know their best 10 mile time for this year as it will be needed for the handicapped part of the competition. My advice is to get there early as there's usually a queue to sign on. The course can be fast on the right day, so here's hoping. Good luck and see you on the night. Mike.

Congratulations to Paul Brownless who rode Rossington Wheelers 25 mile TT on Saturday 25th July only just missing out on going under the hour, however he did achieve a new personal best of 1.00.24. Out of all of the riders Paul was closest to the hour barrier without breaking it so he recieved a consolation prize of £10 for his trouble. Weather conditions were sunshine and showers, wind coming in a north westerly direction with a temperature of 19 degrees. The wind played a key role on the day as there was a cross tail wind on the leg going out to Crowle roundabout which assisted a good high average speed, then on the return to Tuddworth roundabout the wind swapped to a cross head direction. After Tuddworth roundabout the riders had the luxury of more tail wind to Blaxton crossroads roundabout and then it was a hard slog into the wind on the return to the finish at Hatfield.


26th July 2015 Sunday club ride -The club run on Sunday was a 45 mile loop out to Lincoln and back.  7 riders set off from Gainsborough Golf Club at a steady pace into a slight headwind.  The route went through Upton ,  Sturton , turned left through North Carlton then up the little bank to the join the ridge road.  A jolly little bank that’s steep enough to wake the old thigh muscles up.  A quick trip round the outskirts of Lincoln then back via Welton and Hackthorn aided by a welcome tail wind.  Sadly the Red arrows weren’t flying so all was quiet passing RAF Scampton.   After dropping of the ridge road through Fillingham the more energetic riders upped the pace and had a fast run to Willingham where everyone regrouped and headed home.  A pleasant morning out and most people made it back before the rain started.
