76 riders set off at I minute intervals, Heggie starting at 14:04 with Mayne 12 minutes later. Heggie finished in 1h 3m 36s, setting a new club record for the distance at 67 years old, breaking his own 65 and 66 years old records in the process. Mayne was over 6 minutes quicker in 57m 22s which saw him set a new club age record at 57 years old.

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