As the weather improves and we all start to feel much more motivated about riding our bikes outside, it proved a busy weekend for the KVK & KVY as they took on at least three cycling disciplines between them over the weekend!
In Hildenborough we met at Westwood and headed up the Col de Coldharbour for a couple of hill climb TT's. I rode with the older group and I have to say that some of them had limited enthusiasm for the uphill sections, but plenty of it for the downhill!
Our younger riders gave it their all with a close fought battle between the three young riders.
|Toby put in a strong performance on both climbs, Sam and George had a tussle with one win each and finished joint 2nd|
We dodged horses, dog walkers and even some road kill but all made it back in one piece, the only casualty being Gavin's derailleur.
|Round 1 Southern MTB series. Very dry and hilly course near Winchester. Betsy 2nd (and three crashes ouch) Albert 11th - Great start to the series|
Sunday saw team Hacker heading off for some more mountain bike racing (this time near Winchester). The Thwaites seem to have taken up BMXing and were checking out one of the East Kent pump tracks. Meanwhile back in East London, Harry was getting some track time in at the velodrome.
Great to see and hear about all the bike riding our members are getting up to!
