This mornings rides were well supported in view of the weather. There was very little rain during my 50K , although there was some standing water. Thanks to the baking team for the superb cakes again.
In view of the ever changing situation with regards to the Corona virus we have taken the decision to cancel the trophy presentation planned for next Saturday. We felt that the risk that someone attending becoming infected at our event was a situation that we should avoid.
The first club 5 is scheduled for 31st March and at the moment will go ahead subject to any instruction that we may receive form the national governing body.
I should collect the engraved trophies from the engraver this week and will arrange delivery and or collection with the winners who were:
Jason Seabridge, fastest 25 : Jason started that 2019 season but was sidelined early on with his injury, like the terminator he will be back!
