CYCLING: The weather for the 18½ mile hilly time trial was exactly what we have come to expect this year — warm and windy.

Only eight Wheelers and three guests took part in the time trial but what was lacking in quantity was certainly made up for in quality.

All the riders finished the course in less than 60 minutes — a very rare occurrence.

Half the Wheelers taking part achieved personal bests — Francis Glazebrook, Paul Bailey, Nick Poulter and Ian Brown — Paul Bailey could well have come home first if he did not have to take evasive action when nearly knocked off his bike by a careless motorist.

Luke Morgan put in a stonking 52:59 on his first ever hilly time trial. Well done everyone.
