3rd 'Ronde Chelmsford' - Sunday May 2nd 2010

"The route loops from Hackney around Chelmsford and back and covers around 100 miles. It's mostly flat except for North Hill beyond Chelmsford, which, while apparently the biggest hill in Essex, is not a particularly daunting challenge. The café stop will be in Danbury shortly afterwards, and the ride also passes Pleshey Castle and Hanningfield Reservoir.
We'll ride out to High Beach en bloc, where we'll split up into different groups based on ability. The fast group doesn't take any prisoners and will probably contain CCH's multiple race winners plus other hopefuls (last year, forumengers clintsmoker, taogeogheanhart, and GinaG rode with this group), whereas the slower groups will suit pretty much everyone.

As some forumengers who did this last year will be able to testify, this is a cracking ride. Just don't have any JACKET POTATOES at the café stop. ;)"

Mean while back at the ranch...1-2 number two!

               Saturday 27th March - San Fairy Ann CC circuit races at Hog Hill - 3/4 race
Not to be totally out done by the national exploits of their club mate's in the midlands, last Saturday, Clem Berill and Keir Apperley made it two 1-2s in two weeks with Clem taking a fine solo victory that began with ten laps to go. This long range effort came after a typical trade mark breath taking attack on the Hogenburg climb from Clem. He then built up a comfortable lead and cruised to an out of sight victory. This performance was followed later by another successful attack at the same place from Keir who went clear with two laps to go and held off the sprinting pack to seal another CCH 1-2.
