Manchester Velodrome – 15th April 2015.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Two CRR members had the chance to ‘ride the boards’ in the Manchester Velodrome on Wed 15th April. Following a nervous few laps the confidence grew and the laps were getting faster and faster with the riders getting up to the top of the circuit. After a couple of  hours of fantastic tuition from British Cycling coaches it was time to race…… against the clock.  Neil Coppack almost beat the 20 second lap time that seemed to be set as the benchmark on the night.

Paris – Roubaix Sportive 11 April 2015.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Jim and Trevor made the trip over to Paris for the Pasix-roubaix sportive. “The ride was fine on the legs (100 miles of mostly flat), but brutal on the arms. I had pins and needles in my hands for the best part of a week afterwards, despite 28mm tyres and double bar tape. Great experience though and you really get a feel for the history of the race. Only fell off once, although unfortunately it was 100m into the Arenberg in front of a small crowd. Have attached photos of Trev and I in the Arenberg (after the fall thankfully)”  JD.
