Sky Ride Leader Nigel Makes the News

Nigel Leaney had a long time away from the saddle, but in 2008 he got back on his bike – and hasn’t looked back since.

Cambridge-based Nigel was keen to spend more time with his children, and found their joint passion for cycling allowed all the family to enjoy some quality time together.

Tour of Cambridge - Gran Fondo

Wonderful Day
Registered Friday and in the end we had eleven Willingham Wheels members - Dom, Robin, Roger, Mike, Noel, Chris, Les, Graham, Richard, Ken and Paul - all sporting the new kit.
We all met at Cambridge Services on the Sunday, then off in a convoy to Peterborough Show Ground, ten four.

London Ride - Box and Leith Hills

Hi Guys. 

I checked out a few hills ahead of RideLondon yesterday, with a friend. This is our route if you are interested..   Leith and Box were the final two of the climbs we did.

(the stats are from my mate Alan,who is rather better than I).

 

I was keen to check out Leith Hill and Box Hill in advance of this year's event, as they were cut from the course last year due to bad weather.

Mont Ventoux - the Twin Peaks

Click on the photo for more. The scene is of a monument to cycling outside Bedoin, with the misty Mont Ventoux in the distant background.
Stardate 13th to 20th September 2014, having landed in a villa in Carpentras, Provence, la belle France. Lidl 200 metres away. Bakery ditto. Perfect seclusion, despite the vicinity of such a useful commercial zone. Swimming pool (bit cool) and table tennis (not touched). Fantastic spirit with everyone mucking in with shopping and food prep.

Brief report for those who are interested and may consider next year....

 

About 75 cyclists did this event this year in one form or another. More than double last year.

There was a 3-lap relay event, or individuals could do 1, 2 or 3 laps.

Sunny Hunny 2014

We had a great day cycling to Hunstanton.  Good amounts of sunshine and the few times we headed into the wind, it was for manageably short segments!
Nigel's route and preparation - with little map booklets for all and his Garmin to keep us on track - was excellent as always.

Now I know what it's like to ride on closed roads and rolling hills with 24000 others!

An experience like no other - perhaps until next time?
