Barry Gets Under The Hour
59minutes 39seconds in the Twickenham Cycling Club event on a course near Andover saw Barry get under the hour with 21 seconds to spare. He beat his own Rye & District Wheelers Club Record by more than two and a half minutes. This is a long awaited moment in Wheelers history and will inspire other riders to emulate Barry’s achievement. Other good recent results were the rides of Mark
Nash and Jim Hollands in the KCA “100”, Mark beating his personal best and getting third place in the best improvement competition and Trevor Bridges’ consistently good rides in the Evening Points Competition which he now leads by a 55 point margin from Barry Goodsell. The ladies have been turning out in force this season and have their own points competition which is led by Sue Spice by ten points over Brenda Davies.
Barbecue a great success
This year’s Wheelers Barbecue, held for the second year in succession at Rolvendene Farm, was an outstanding success. Over fifty attended and enjoyed wonderful food cooked by Martin Carter on three charcoal grills. There were
cycle obstacle races and slow bicycle races ongoing through the event. The weather was perfect and the setting outstanding. Most of the members attended resulting in the best get together the club has ever had. It was nice to see Mick Kellie and Bob Giles at the event. They are two of our most ‘far flung’ members and generally only seen at the evening time trials at Tenterden. Thanks to Lorna and Kevin Hall for the use of their premises and for the hard work they, Jo’ Vincent and Nicki Waters did in organising such a wonderful evening.
