Strong winds and rain didn’t halt the Gainsborough Aegir Cycling Club members last week.

Daniel Nicholson cycled out of town to Morton heading through Laughton Woods towards the River Trent.

At Wildsworth he returned to home passing through Walkerith and Morton.

Aegir members Dave Day and Mark Clark rode out to near Saxilby, and Ray Newton drove out assisting to marshal the Lincolnshire Road Riding Association 25 mile time Trial.

Trevor Halstead rode the event in strong winds and rain and achieved a time of 1:19:06 in his first race of the 2015 season.

Next week’s ride is a leisure ride on Sunday 5th April, going to Chesterfield.

Riders should meet at Roseway at 8.20am.

The Wednesday 8th April evening time trial is 15 miles or an eight mile juvenile race.

Meet at 6.15 pm on Laughton Lane just past the East Stockwith junction.
