Loughborough sock to Granville Horton - for "courageously" riding a plastic bike
Presentation / prizes-giving as Phil Wray - recovered from nasty illness of last year. David Eccles, Creator and mentor of the race "missing".
Nice break in horrible weather. Forbidding clouds held off.
. There was a 10mph westerly wind.
Brilliant organisation, as ever, by Loughborough Pheonix C.C. Thanks to Timekeeper Stuart Crick, Rider-launcher Martin Temple, Dave Bousfield and another steward. Mrs Crick provided excellent home-made cakes and drinks as usual.
I would like to get details of bikes / gears ridden if anyone can offer information. SC
