Basil Loses Club Run Sprints!

Firstly, you'll be pleased to hear that there was a club run today. However due to weather it was undertaken off road by myself (Chris Adams), Glen Taylor, Michael Halloran and Noelle Godfrey and Basil Moss.

The lost sprints? Basil had the following handicaps:
1. He was on a road bike with puny slicks
2. It was a fixed
3. Therefore he couldn't switch tractor ruts
4. I decided not to either
5. He probably only weighs 1.2 James Wards. (i.e. Nowt)

Maarvellous!

By Chris Adams

Ps I beat him up hills as well.

Dinner and Prize Presentation

Last Friday some 70 members and their guests assembled to celebrate CCC at its annual dinner and prize presentation.

We were very privileged to have Emma Pooley, team Cervelo rider, silver medallist at the 2008 Olympics, winner of the Montreal World Cup race and much more, as our guest. She gave a great speech and presentation, detailing some of the highs and lows of a pro bike rider and her route to the top of women’s' cycling. She gave tribute to the Cambridge cycling scene and to CCC member Tim Williams who has been coaching her for a number of years

During the prize presentation, Tom Platts kept us all entertained with his dry and slightly self-deprecating banter. Emma handed out the prizes in what had been a very successful year for the club.
