This was the launch of the new 5 mile course, named in memory of Clive Collins. Clive was a top Nomad tester, hugely supportive of others, especially the novices, and an inspiration to many.
A sunny yet gusty evening greeted 19 riders with a temperature of 17 degrees C wind 14 mph from the north 18 riders secured the guaranteed PB’s promised with one rider unable to decline the lure of the fastest route to the Blackhorse pub thus off course and not in contention (penalised by having to write the report).
In addition to the 18 PB’s there was talk of a veteran ladies record (Meline Fletcher), fixed gear record (Meline Fletcher) and fastest folding bike (Nick Senechal) over the new course.
