Cyclo Cross Sunday November 16th
In dull and misty conditions the club collaborated to deliver certainly the smoothest and most successful event so far in recent times.
With hundreds of riders competing in all categories: damp conditions made for a slippery course.
Thanks to all those who helped and most of all to Ray Morgan.
