Pace-Judging & Freewheeling competition results

Our annual pace-judging and freewheeling competition recently took place under a cloudy sky with ten cyclists taking part. Congratulations to the winner Robert, and thanks to all who came along and supported the event. We enjoyed tea and cakes afterwards at Nosh Cafe, Four Marks, where Dan the organiser presented prizes to the runners-up Bill and David.
More photos of the event will soon be available to view under the Photo Gallery tab.

Bike ride in memory of Malcolm

Ten Alton riders gathered recently for a repeat of last year’s successful ride in memory of former club mate Malcolm Seal. A hilly route favoured by Malcolm was chosen, and like last year’s ride, the weather on the day was extremely hot.

The cyclists were joined on the ride by Malcolm’s son Graeme, and afterwards his wife Maureen met the group for tea at Gilbert White’s in Selborne.
