Sunday saw some King’s Lynn Cycling Club riders tackle the Open 50-mile Time Trial ran by Breckland CC which incorporated the VTTA East Anglian 50-mile Championship.
This was on the B50/18 course and KLCC were well represented. For KLCC lady rider Kay Burgess this was her first 50-mile TT and she completed it in a time of 2.11.22.
She commented: “Although the weather was calm and dry it was quite cold as it was an early morning start. The course was mainly flat but some of the road surface was a bit unforgiving.”
This didn’t deter her enjoying her final and best TT of the season.
Simon Hardy had a good time of 2.07.52, adding: “It was perfect conditions again; cool to start with, temperature rising as the race progressed.”
Steve Neill completed it in a personal best time of 1.52.00 (tbc) while David Procter had a time of 1.57.17.
Riders from KLCC attended Harpley CE Primary School fundraising day in which KLCC assisted in the school’s sponsored bike rides. The children completed a six-mile course based locally from their school and KLCC rode alongside them.
Also the school had a longer bike route of over 40 miles starting from the school to Holkham Hall and back with members of KLCC riding on the same route with sponsored riders from the school.
KLCC also provided a Go Ride for pupils which was being run by KLCC coach Ray Barnett. Members of the KLCC Go Ride helped out by riding with pupils on the six-mile sponsored ride.
