Press Report – February 21st, 2010

Congleton Cycling Club 

Eight members participated in the club-run on 14th February. Denise and David Hurst, Georgina and Bob Norton, Karl Austin, Peter and Roy Hayhurst and Doug Taylor enjoyed an easy, sociable ride in dry but cold and grey conditions. Radnor Bank caused a welcome warming-up but then it was steady-eddy, chat-chat with just a bit of puff-puff via Toft, Knutsford, Tabley and High Legh to the lunch stop at Poplar 2000. The return leg was via Appleton and Great Budworth, in slightly brighter weather – and the consensus was – “better than lazing (or working) at home”, plus a well-earned hot shower or bath – to boot. 

At the club meeting last Thursday, a decision was taken to postpone this weekend’s Saturday Social Ride and the Sunday 100 Reliability Trial – see revisions – below. This decision proved to be the right one as the forecasted bad weather continued over the weekend. Needless to say, we are all looking forward to the end of winter but in the meantime, some are even heading for warmer cycling climes – e.g. Lanzarote! 

Future Fixtures

  • The Saturday Ride is now rescheduled for Saturday Feb 27th 11:30, starting from the Unicorn Pub, Holmes Chapel Road, West Heath.
