A reminder that it’s the Cycling UK Hard Riders 50 miles in 4 hours Tourist Trial on Sunday, 10 February 2019. It starts at 9:00 am from Marton Shops (TS7 8DX). The route goes via Stokesley, Great Broughton, Clay Bank, Bilsdale, Newgate Bank, Helmsley, up to Sutton Bank (“the graveyard”), Thirsk and Northallerton to finish on the green at Brompton.
A map of the route can be found here.
There’s a £1 entry fee and certificates to riders who complete the event within the time limit.
Note that this event is not organised by Cleveland Wheelers but by the Teesside branch of Cycling UK.
Anyone can enter.
If there are any queries please contact Dave Bell on 01642 467005.
Arthur Puckrin, who sadly died recently, was a long time member of Cleveland Wheelers and for many years was a regular feature at the Evening Series.
Cycling was not his chosen sport however. He was primarily a triathlete or more specifically an ultra triathlete. He was attracted to endurance events which took days to complete.
Before we had the club website Arthur used to write up his exploits for inclusion in the club magazine, The Spokesman. This is one such article which appeared in the Winter 2002/03 edition.
I think it gives some indication of the measure of the man.
Fantastic news, Harry Tanfield has been signed by World Tour Team, Katusha Alpecin.
