Again 11 riders completed the course, with a few moans about the wind, but that’s cycling.

On Saturday afternoon the club had two riders competing at Witham Wheelers’ open 10 on a Sleaford course.

Paul Ripley returned in 24.32 and Brendan Thomas in 26.11.

This weekend will see the Wheelers competing in the Lindsey Road, club’s open over 10 miles on the Laceby Road course, usually a fast course for fast times.
