Club Time Trial Thursday 30 June

Congregation area
Early riders caught a shower between Cambourne and Caxton Gibbet on the outward leg. The road dried very quickly so visibility was only temporarily a concern.

Despite the rain, or perhaps because of it, there was next to no wind. This gave some fast times with Chris & Luke going sub 20 minutes!

Provisional race results are on the "TT Helpers" tab above.

Club Time Trial Thursday 23 June

Haslingfield Start and Sign-On
Hmmm.....

This is the second consecutive event we have had to cancel due to inclement weather.

Thanks to the Helpers who turned out, and to our President, Mick Draper, who made sure we weren't tempted to proceed!

Stick-on Bifocals

If your eyesight is not as good as it used to be and consequently you require reading glasses, here is a solution that enables you to wear sunglasses and read your Garmin.

Stick-on bifocals by Zcifi. Applied simply by wetting the lens. Re-usable by peeling off and re-applying.

Google Zcifi and get them direct or from Amazon for less than $20

Update resulting from discussions on Sunday clubrun: -

Get them ready made from straightlines.com or through Amazon/Ebay - Google Voltx safety glasses.

Hunstanton Clubrun Saturday 11 June

16 riders left Addenbrookes at 7am as one group.

A terminal mechanical on the outskirts of Swaffham necessitated a rescue. Fortunately the rider concerned had arranged to meet his wife at Holkham for lunch so she was already on the way!

Departing Hunstanton at 2pm our second terminal mechanical happened on the outskirts of Downham Market close to the railway station, which was fortunate.

10 riders completed the round trip, arriving back in Cambridge at 7:30pm. Despite a forecast of heavy afternoon showers we only got mildly damp between Kings Lynn and Downham Market.

Thanks to all who joined Ian Hopkin and me for a memorable ride.
