We seem to be in a purple patch for club records this season and not just from the amazing Becky and Howard Lewis. From Youth with Lucy Hart to Espoir and Senior with Hetty Niblett to a long time member Andrew Clarke improving the new 15 mile record. Check out the Records page to see an amazing history of times through the decades.
With just one round to go on Thursday 19th July, Mid Shropshire Wheelers lead the team series from Hafren CC.
Six rounds from eight count for the individual titles but all points count for the team award. Look out for news on the prize presentations which will happen soon.

Less than 24hrs after Ronnie Tse flew back home for the summer he took part in the Time Trial of the Hong National Road Championships. A 15km course for the Junior Men and Ronnie riding his road bike, not a specific Time Trial bike should be delighted with a bronze medal position. A Concord College student Ronnie has been a regular at the Shrewsbury Sports Village, Ride Social and on our and Paramount CC training rides. Good luck to Ronnie in the road race!
The super fast husband and wife tandem combo that is Becky and Howard Lewis have done it again, another 30mph plus ride in the Mercia CC 30 mile Time Trial gave them the National Record in a time of 58.51!
Meanwhile in the Sleaford Wheelers 15 mile Time Trial, Andrew Clarke lowered the standard set by Dave York for this new club record distance to 36.28. Congratulations to you all!

Thursday night track training is now taking it's summer break and will return in September for structured and coached training. With so many other cycling activities taking place on Thursdays, Road Race League, our own Thursday night Circuit Races and a crowded SCCA Time Trial calendar there are not enough riders joining the sessions to pay for the exclusive track time.

These events are a great introduction to Time Trials for all riders over 12 years of age run on the quiet B5009 Queens Head to Gobowen and back.
