  1. Here are the final positions of the virtual Route 66 ride, some 2,277 miles and 78,600 feet of climbing. Thank you everyone who took part, we raised hundreds of pounds for the MNDA Charity, which along with other events totaled to more than £5,000. Big congratulations to those that managed to complete the challenge; Christine Smith, Sue Earnshaw, Steve Tobin, Helen Gilmore, Rob Stallard and Tony Griffiths. The last day saw Diane Potter achieve over 1,400 miles and reach the town of Alberqerque. We now move on to 2017 and the Trans-Canada Challenge. Again, thank you everyone.

  2. With just four days to go before the end of the challenge and we have another one over the line. Tony Griffiths passed the finish line with a club ride to Shirenewton, making it three ‘Yellow’ team riders completing the challenge, and six riders in total. Carolyn Griffiths also swept through the 1,000 mile barrier.
