This has been a difficult and unusual year for all types of clubs and their members due to the covid pandemic and Wheelers is no exception. Accordingly, all rides have been adversely affected in terms of numbers for a large part of the year. A total of 22 weeks was affected by lockdown when no club rides took place including Saturday rides. This means that the maximum no of Saturday rides possible was 30.
In all, 29 members took part in the Saturday rides over the year.
There were 12 or more riders out on just 7 occasions (compared with 22 last year) and the most popular ride was on 7 December 2019 when 17 members turned out. Out of the 30 rides possible, there were no weeks where there was no turnout.
The results of this year’s Saturday Rides Trophy are as follows:-
In joint 3rd place – Hilary Dowling and Chris Last – 18 rides
In 2nd place – James Porter – 20 rides
In 1st place with 21 out of 30 rides – Steve Lee
This years 10 mile Time Trial winners are:
Chris Last – 23.14
Paula Fisher – 25.57
The 25 mile, 50 mile, 100 mile and 12 hour trophies will not be awarded this year because of disruption of the time trial programme due to Covid 19.
