Racing resumed last weekend for members of Birdwell Wheelers. All racing had been suspended from 17th March due to the corona virus but with the gradual easing of the lockdown under strict guidelines to maintain distancing, time trialling has restarted.
Wheelers Trevor Mayne and Paul Heggie rode in the Tickhill Velo 10 mile time trial at Hatfield Woodhouse. On a warm day when the course record was broken by local professional Connor Swift in 19 min 09 sec, Mayne finished in 23 min 50 sec whilst Heggie was further behind in 26 min 39 sec.

Due to the restrictions on maximum gatherings of 6 people the club have currently suspended the Sunday club rides. These will resume when government guidelines allow.
