Colourful Clumber Audax

1 comment

A perennial favorite of mine. Five riders from the Club took part (Saturday 20th October) including me, Brian Abbott, Wayne Bramley, Paul and Sue. A chilly start but near perfect conditions for the 68 and a bit mile ride from Bolsover. The route changes slightly every year. This time it was out through Clumber Park, where we meandered north east through lanes and villages to end up at the Cafe half way around in Misterton and a welcome break. The return journey took us west across the top of the County and eventually dropped us south and back towards Bolsover. Paul, Sue and Wayne had plenty left in the tank to push on quickly back to the finish being among the first to return I think. Brian and I took it steadier, but still put in a good effort and got back with a placing in the top ten. A great day out with excellent company!

Great ride with lumpy return after the cafe stop. Enjoyable in warm autumn weather. Over 100 riders had registered and 97 started. I got back before 2pm - a first for me on a 110 km ride starting at 9am, - so I was well pleased.

    Not many out today, perhaps due to the cold weather. Only 5 in our easy group and we headed for Hickling via Orston, Elton, Barkestone and Harby. Martin hit a new pothole near Orston, but we were quickly back on the road after fixing the puncture. A nice ride in the Autumn sunshine though it was cold - around 5 degrees C with a keen SE wind.

    With regret, the Sherwood Open 25 which had been tabled for 15th August 2020 is now going to be cancelled tomorrow. I have notified Bill Stanley of my decision. Unless someone steps up, which I know is highly unlikely, then my decision will stand. I initially put my name down to run it on 5th September 2020 and that date would have personally been fine for me. As it is, in my absence, a decision was made, at the CTT Date Setting Meeting on Sunday, to move it back to one of the alternative dates I offered. This would have required someone else to take on the running of the event on the day. I would have happily helped out anyone in Sherwood that could have taken it on with the admin side of it where I could. It’s a great shame as the event this year was an enormous success. In fact, I’ve been told that our Open 10 was one of ONLY 3 events in the Central district that had a full field. Our Open 25 was only 4 short of being a full field from memory to another great success for Sherwood. If you anyone does wish to take this one on then you need to let me know today really so I can put your name forward to Bill.

    Riders thin on the ground today as it was a bit drizzly at first - 8 in total I think. Just 2 of us in the super easy group. We headed to Hoveringham and were soon passed by the fast group. However, the road was closed for a "police incident" and the fast group was not allowed through. I found later that a woman died after her car went in the river yesterday afternoon. We had to turn back to Lowdham where I noticed I hadn't started my Garmin so missed 8 miles! After the delay Phil and I decided to go to Southwell Garden Centre via Averham and Upton. After consuming vast sticky flapjacks we returned through Morton and found the road re-opened at Hoveringham. It was now sunny and the roads were starting to dry out. 40 miles for me.
