How's about a change of direction this Sunday with a ride out east - Fairburn - Tadcaster etc. Meet Sainsburys roundabout, Brighouse 9am,
Since Damien got his new Whyte a few weeks ago there has been much talk (or grumbling) about the weight of winter bikes. In order to put an end to speculation Oakworth Steve came equipped with his weighing scales on last Sundays ride with the results being -
1. Padiham Chris 14.5 kg
2. Damien 13.5 kg
3. Oakworth Steve 12.5 kg
4. Tauranga Bay Paul 12.5 kg
5. Pete H 11 kg
6. Nigel 10.5 kg
7. Ian 10 kg
8. Richard 9.8 kg
With a couple exceptions the speed of the bikes follow an identifiable pattern - the heavier they are the faster they go.

Force GB have kindly prepared the above artwork for me for a jersey (any sort of jersey from a skinsuit through to a heavyweight winter thermal), based on our old 60's/70's club kit. If you fancy one let me know and I will put an order together - already got several names on the list.
