Most of our road race team are away this Sunday at Moreton Morrell near Stratford upon Avon for the Veterans National Championships - good luck to you all - a 1 2 3 is a distinct possibility in the over 70's race - no pressure there then!
Also on Sunday Mel and I are being joined by a thousand plus other riders at the White Rose Classic sportive from Ilkley - looks like it may be a hot day but there's plenty of long steep descents to cool off.

On Saturday 13th of July there's the Beaches and Bridges 225k Audax from Stamford Bridge, near York. Looks like it will be a good change of scenery with a potter over the Wolds for an ice cream on the sands at Bridlington, then a gentle ride through East Yorkshire's lanes and across the Humber Bridge and return through the flatlands. Myself, Simon and Phil have entered so far. On-line entries are being accepted, £3.50 via the AudaxUK website.
