Salford CC has most definitely hit the Cheshire TT scene

Ride report – Salford CC hits the Cheshire Cat, Sunday 26th March 2017.

Ride report – Salford CC hits the Cheshire Cat Sportive ride. 80 miles from Crewe via Mow Cop, Gun Hill and Wincle with feedstops at Biddulph Moor and Goostrey.

I really don’t know where to start and what to write tbh. So much fun, laughter, banter, pain, sweat and total shared achievement.
We started as a group of 10, we finished with a group of 10. We rode as a group of 10. We put many other clubs and riders to shame with a shared sense of purpose.
I’ll leave others to add their own anecdotes but all I will say was a bl**dy brilliant day out; great event, great route, great weather (if a bit cool at times and a very cheeky headwind in more places than was liked).

An absolute pleasure to ride with everyone

Race report – M&DTTA 10mile TT, J2/3, 25th March 2017

Race report – M&DTTA 10mile TT, J2/3, Twemlow – Chelford and back.
Dry, warm and sunny (yay). Headwind out and very busy traffic conditions which caused a few issues to riders, not only from Salford but through the whole field (downside of seeing sun for the first time this year).

Kevin Woodward 25:32
Rhianna Parkinson 27:27 – new PB
Michelle Fairclough 27:47
Adam Darby 24:42 – including an unplanned mechanical (unshipped chain)
Kirk Yearsly 25:23 – new PB

Another great outing for Salford CC and more points in the bag

B/C Ride report Sunday 19th March 2017

Short ride report today. WET, WET, WETTER!
Three riders up and about early this morning (moi, Michelle Fairclough and Martin Ince) to do a short ride up to Sheephouse Lane to support Kevin Woodward on his (solo) ride in the UK Fire Fighters 2UP Duathlon around the Rivington – Belmont – Anglezark circuit including the infamous Sheephouse Lane and Anglezark climbs.
Started wet and breezy, finished wet and breezy but in true Sean Kelly style after getting home we’ve decided it wasn’t that bad after all.
Chapeau to Kevin for racing on such a filthy day and doing Salford CC colours proud; even spotted smiling over the top of Sheephouse when passing us. Looks like you were going well mate . No photos I’m afraid, to wet and murky and you were going too quick

Normal B/C group ride service will resume next Sunday; watch this space
