P164 Boltons Bench 31/03/19
A slightly warmer morning than the last few, but a rising easterly wind, at least helpful on the leg back from Ipley. A full complement of helpers, meaning a reduced field of riders, but made for a smooth running event. Also, a growing number of riders are now doing the popular Sunday morning ride rather than racing.
Fastest home was Richard Parker, beating second claim Mike Anderson in his French racing team colours. Richard Mason claimed another final step of the podium. Young George Weller wasn’t put off by racing the previous week and returned to race, though suffered a minor mechanical issue with his cycling shoe.
This week nobody fell foul of the club's new 'No Rear Light - No Ride' policy.
There is one further Sunday event before the club commences Tuesday evening racing.
