Reliability N0. 7 – Photos in Gallery

Report to follow

A significant improvement in the weather conditions from the previous week saw a good turn-out for the 7th of the Witham Wheelers Reliability rides as 34 riders set out in 3  ability groups to take on the 63 and 50 mile routes. A reasonably flat  circuit heading out to East Heckington before turning south towards Bourne and back to Grantham via Little Bytham.

With all the groups riding well together nearly all riders completed at their target speed. After 7 weeks three newcomers to the rides Ian Metcalfe, Ian Rayson and Julie Clark hold pride of place having completed every week so far, which is a great achievement considering the weather conditions some weeks.

Next Sunday 26th there is a choice of a 62 mile hilly route out to Tilton on the Hill via Melton Mowbray returning to Grantham via Oakham with a shorter 50 mile route missing out the hilly Tilton section.

First group leaves the cricket club on Gorse lane at 8.30, all welcome, further details and routes on the club web site
