Tour of Britain 2018 Photos

Today the 2018 Tour of Britain visited Warwickshire, briefly clipping the Cotswold hills too. I managed to catch the race on the steepest part of the Ilmington hill KoM – peaking out at 16% – before heading to Royal Leamington Spa to catch the finish. Below are a selection of the best photos from today’s stage.

Women’s Time Trialling for Novices – My First Year

The first club time trial My first time trial took place on a cold and murky New Year’s Day 2018. It was the K7/5 between Stafford and Cannock that promised to be ‘downhill overall’ – there’s a lot of this in time trialling. A course promises to be downhill, but it’s invariably the most uphill way to get downhill! A splash of tinsel on the...

Mad Summer Hare 2017 Sportive

The final warm-up before tackling La Ronde Picarde a week later, the Mad Summer Hare was to provide a good challenge. It’s the first time that this sportive has taken place but it’s a sister sportive to the Mad March Hare which I tackled in 2016 and very wetly in 2017. The Mad Summer Hare was 100 miles and worked its way up Snowshill, Saintbury,...

Saracen RC Open TT 2017

This was to be my first time trial in a little while, having busied myself with sportives and managing to overdo things and strain a knee after the Civil Service races. It was also another couple of firsts. My first go on the K33/10D circuit just south of Alcester in Warwickshire and my first time trial ridden with a power meter. Riding to Power A...
