The Stevenage Circular Cycle rolled out from its new start location with more than 100 riders attempting the half century challenge.
We, as a group, would like to thank Marriotts Sports Centre for their cooperation yesterday. Without their help, the day would not have been possible.
As always, a massive thank you to the many volunteers around the route. Without your help, this event would have only been one of Alison's wildest dreams.
And of course, the final piece of the puzzle, thank you to all of the cyclists who took on the challenge and congratulations to those of you who made it around.
Our next challenge rides are just 7 weeks away. The Off-Road Challenges
give you the opportunity to pit yourself against a route between 50km and 100km on August 4th, 2013.
Also there is the Cecil Cooke Memorial Trophy
for CTC members which is organized by last year's winner, Stuart Higham. The competition is on 15th September, 2013.
