    After two new course Pb’s for our Griston route on Wenesday Simon Atherton and I attended the Norwich ABC club 10 at Ketteringham. On a colder, much windier night simon did a good 27.49 on a hilly course, facing the two category climbs of col de wreningham and the col de ketteringham. I could only muster a 28.18, slightly slower than my first attempt in near perfect conditions.

    Over 160 cyclists took to the North Norfolk Roads on Saturday 12th in the first of this seasons “Norfolk Nips” Audax rides. Conditions were quite mild for the time of year and waterproofs were not required.
    For reasons of safety, the organisers released cyclists in small groups away from St Pauls Church Hall in Hellesden. Riders headed to Weybourne and travelled the coast road through Sheringham and Cromer with a checkpoint and rest stop at Mundesley where the tea and cakes were welcomed – Jonets Cafe must have had their busiest day of the year!
    Back in the saddle to Happisburgh and a meander across country back to Hellesden where more tea and cakes awaited the finishers.
    The official distance for the event was 66 miles, although some riders recorded higher mileages with unscheduled detours. A couple of reported punctures, but otherwise a successful and enjoyable day had by all with most looking forward to the next “Nip” on December 10th.

    CC Breckland had a very good turn out with at least 14 riders taking part. (Don Saunders, Declan Davis, Martin Badham, Julian Farrell, Rogger Steggles, Danny Watkins, Peter James, Stephen Penney, Tony Reynolds, Geoff Muller, Mark Fairhead, Jack Purcell and Louise and Ed Dennett on the tandem – If you know of more, please list them below)

    Paul Vergett, Harvey Taylor, and I’m still positive I saw Chris Nudds.(Martin)

    It was 2130 hours on Monday 2nd April and Simon and I have just swept the 5mile TT course to get rid of the stones, sand and shale for a safer ride. Now if this ain’t dedication I don’t know what is?

    ‘Boabacca’s’ account of the ‘Iceni 100’ contains a picture of Declan and Harvey Hall en route and one of my Van Nicholas complete with weathered Carradice, which I think is ?Roger reinforcing his point about people flying round on carbon racing machines. URL below:

    Seven CCB riders – (Paul V, Julian, Declan, 2 Nicks, 2 Harveys) completed an interesting 109K route [thanks to Don]. Julian’s group bribed the two fast men, Declan and Harvey H, to pace them back to Swaffham from the Control Point at Snetterton. Veteran Audaxer John Thompson claims that the final climb back over the heath into a north easterly was harder than the Tourmalet. Argument still rages over the correct answer to the first Information Control.

    I have secured a place in this years LEL, and was wondering if any other club members had done the same? It would be good to get info and training suggestions from anyone who has attempted previous event.

    1. Martin Badham

      Hi Ian,
      Don Saunders rode it in 2009,along with Tony Reynolds and Ken Price. I entered it but was invalided out before the start. As a result I was helping at the penultimate control, Gamblingay. I have subsequently worked as a volunteer on the computers at the start and finish in 2013 and have volunteered to do the same in 2017. I’m sure Don can tell you some interesting tales from what was a very hard event. All the very best, Ian. Looking forward to seeing you off on 30th July and stamping your brevet at the finish. Martin

    Hello all,
    I have a Argon18 E80 TT bike for sale. I’m asking for £650 but also open to sensible offers. I’m 5’10” and it’s about right for me but not having ridden this type of bike I’m not sure about correct geometry. It has been upgraded with Vision bars and wheels, and has a SRAM Rival group set.
    Can be seen/haggled over in the Dereham area.
