Last Monday Wheeler Paul Heggie rode in the VTTA (Veterans Time Trial Association) National 10 Mile Time Trial Championship at Tring in Hertfordshire. On a day when temperatures soared to over 30 deg C he recorded a time of 23m 09s which was good enough to set a new club age record at 64 years old beating the long-standing record set by Mel Shaw in 2002 by a margin of 1m 39s.
The previous day club members rode out to follow the final stage of the Tour of Yorkshire from Halifax to Leeds.
Tuesday saw the first of the club’s 5 mile time trials at Thurgoland, the first two being cancelled due to bad weather. Fastest on the night was visitor Andy Nichols of Team B38 who finished in 11m 15s a new course record. Birdwell Wheelers times and handicap points were as follows:
Sunday’s club run from Brewers Fayre at Brampton roundabout at 9:15am is a 100 mile reliability ride to Howden and back to be completed in less than 8 hours. Visitors are welcome.
The next club meeting is tonight (Friday) at Birdwell Community Centre starting at 7:30pm. Prospective members are welcome to attend.
