The threat of Storm Brian (Mark II) kept the numbers down for this weekend’s club run from Aylsham. Barry, Storm Brian (Mark I) and Harvey were joined by Tarn from the recently formed Manchester Bicycle Club (30 members). Tarn is a second cat roadman who recently took third place overall in the Manchester Wheelers Two Day. He also races track at Manchester Velodrome.
Barry punctured a Gatorskin early on as the quartet tacked through the lanes in a very strong and blustery southerly. The route home was designed to take maximum advantage of the wind over the final twenty miles.
Aylsham to Aylsham: 51 miles/ Max: 71 miles/ >> Barry (dead Garmin), you would have about 68 miles.
