To ‘welcome’ the first day of autumn we are putting in an order for some winter club kit. Estimated prices (including VAT) are as follows (depending on number of items ordered)
Another good turnout and some good competition between the North Norfolk Wheelers and other local clubs including ten from East Coast Riders of Fakenham (mainly competing on road bikes).
The competition winners are as follows:
|Overall fastest man & lady||Graham Denny||Kim Charlton/Amanda Marshall tied|
|**Fastest VET on standard man & lady||Graham Denny (+4:31)||Amanda Marshall (+1:57)|
|Fastest Club Handicap Time||Philip West|
|Fastest on road bike (without tri-bars) man & lady||Rob Kitchen||Lorraine Jarvis|
|Fastest two-up (road or TT bike)||Matt Whitaker/Sean Price|
|Fastest non – NN Wheeler rider (not a 1st or 2nd claim member)||Jonny O’Neil|
(Phil West you can collect your medal at the next time trial)
**For those who want to work out their age handicap (VET on standard time) click here:vet standard
The event was run at the earlier time to avoid darkness at the finish, however due to a couple of riders getting held up by increased traffic around Fakenham this is likely to be moved to earlier in the season next year at a later start time.
Thanks to the timekeepers, marshals and riders. See you next Tuesday for the penultimate 10m TT at Pretty Corner.

Luke Pettit continued improving with the fastest handicap time and a PB.

Here is a link to their site:
They can provide campaign t-shirts to people who sign up and take part. Any support is greatly appreciated. If anyone has any questions please contact Peter Adams firstname.lastname@example.org
We are placing an order for new club kit next week. Planning on getting long or short sleeve skin suits, bib shorts, short/long sleeve jerseys and possibly socks at the moment.
Exact price will depend on numbers ordered but we expect it to be roughly as follows if we get 5 items of each (+VAT to be added to the following), so we will get exact price before confirming order.

bid short only £40
short sleeve summer jersey £35
long sleeve summer jersey £37
