Rollers 6 February 2018

Once again a rather thin turnout if you exclude Timeladies and Timepups....only our usual hardcore handful who called it a night after only two rides or one if you count the Timelord and Timelad PBs to be had I'm afraid.

Rollers 30 January 2018

As the first month of the new year comes to an end a slightly fuller cellar this week meant that the Timelord was not forced to do two officiating jobs simultaneously. The return of the Junior Timelord after being absent last week with Mann-flu saw him taking on some timing duties as well as spotting and keeping Charlie company. :)

Sadly no sign of a PB for anyone with Matthew C fastest man on the night.

Well done to the regulars.

Rollers 23 January 2018

A very sparse gathering this evening. Junior Timelord was absent with the lurgi and the Timelord was joined by just three hardy souls.  By dint of using a Tardis the Timelord was able to both timekeep and spot for the riders so all three could ride at once for each ride.....

We hope to see some more of you there next week......

Rollers 9 January 2018

Although a handful of us turned out on 2 January this was mainly to collect club mugs from Martin G and no one turned a pedal in anger. This week saw 6 riders and the Timelord in a cellar that was distinctly damper and colder than usual, possibly because the shop above is now closed so there is less heat from above?

No PBs in the damp and cold. Results below. Everyone had had enough after two rides, even the usually mad keen Charlie P.

message from Martin Cleminson

Martin Cleminson has asked me to post this message on his behalf:
“Hello everyone. I would like to a massive thank you to everybody who came to our rescue and gave roadside assistance to myself and Gail after coming off on the black ice during the GBCP Audax. Thank you to those who gave help and advice; offered clothing to keep warm; kept a look-out for the ambulance and warned other cyclists of the slippery road, saving them from a similar fate.
It truly was the worst section of black ice I have seen (or not seen!). a SPECIAL THANK YOU TO Andy Mann for getting the bikes back to Halifax (I hope he’s cleaned them!) and to Dave Saleem and Richard Whitehead for getting our car to the hospital carpark (only £11 a day!). it truly made us feel we were part of a team, thank you.

I have basically snapped the ball joint of my hip(trochanteric femur fracture) and Monday evening had an operation to bolt it back together (with titanium screws!) and today during physio took the first couple of steps down the long road to recovery. Looking forward to seeing you all down that road soon. Martin “
