Fonthill Reliability

Fonthill Reliability Ride - Results

In spite of the cold, the cloud, and the remnants of the wind from Hannah, 17 riders turned up for the last of the early-season reliability rides of 2019, including three of our Fareham friends. As usual, there was a preponderance of gold medallists, though both the slower categories were also represented. Riders from Sotonia except where noted

Congratulations to all! And a plea for the autumn: These events would benefit greatly from a larger cohort of riders of more leisurely speeds. Reliability Rides are NOT races, merely a test of a rider's endurance, the roadworthiness of her bike, and (for some) an ability to navigate a route. As the saying goes, "All that glitters is not gold."


Road Bike Series Club 10 TT - Results

Harry at Redlynch

Harry Parsons tops the climb at Redlynch

In welcome contrast to the cold and windy weather at the leg loosener on Sunday, it was a warm evening with just a hint of a gentle breeze for the Club 10 on the P182c at Nomansland.

9 riders took part, one for each of the 9 people who organised, kept time and marshalled.

All competitors bar one were on standard road bikes, and Mary Corbett was partnered with Jon Chapman on the tandem.

Leg Loosener Road Bike TT results - 14 April 2019

It was a cold morning on the 14.5 mile course near Nomansland. We had a strong field of riders, particularly in the Road Bike category. Sotonia's Ed Slot brought home the win, with a narrow 4 second margin to Samuel Wadsley of Primera-Teamjobs in second place. Brook Elgie also made the top five in the road bike category, and Rebecca Stubbs finished 2nd place in the women's TT bike category.

James Peckham judged his effort perfectly to pick up the spot prize for 10th place, his recent Tenerife training camp obviously heightening his racing senses.

Special mention to Dan Edwards and his fiancée Sarah who not only pushed off all the riders but then collected the signs from around the course while the prize presentation was taking place.

It was great to have so many riders taking part in this toughest of trials, and I was especially glad to see so many of our Fareham Wheeler friends, who represented a third of the field. What brilliant weather we had, too: 15 degrees and wall-to-wall sunshine, almost as good as the February ride.

The next Reliability Ride, which will start from Carlo’s Ices at 9am on the last Sunday in April, is a 75-mile route to the west, of which the scenic high point is the drive through the Fonthill estate. Longer than today's ride, but less hilly!


Bourne Supremacy Reliability Ride - 24 March 2019

Bourne Supremacy Route

The Bourne Supremacy is a hilly 68 mile / 109km ride taking in the Bourne Valley and the North Wessex Downs before heading back via Abbots Ann and Longstock. Climbs of note are Faccombe, Combe Gibbet and Conholt. Having worked your way over these, the last 20 miles should whizz by, starting with the long descent off Conholt and gradually levelling off, with the only lump being the climb north of Longstock.

The ride will leave from Romsey Bus Station at 9:30 and finishes at Romsey World of Water on Greatbridge Road.
Please arrive 15 minutes before the start to sign on and receive a copy of the route sheet.

Newton Tony Reliability Ride - Results

On a dry day with strong north-westerly winds, 21 riders turned up at Carlo's in Wellow for a 9:30 start and all completed the course well within time. The going was tough on the way out (especially for anyone riding solo) but with the reward of wind assistance on the way back, particularly along the Porton Down road. Thanks to the good folk at Carlo's for providing HQ.
