Virgin Money Cyclone Sportive

A few club members rode the Virgin Cyclone Sportive today. The HQ for this popular sportive is at Gosforth, Newcastle.  There are 3 rides to choose from; a 30 miler, 60 miles or 100 miles through the sometimes testing, but always scenic Northumberland around Whalton, Forestburngate, Rothbury, Bellingham and Stamfordham. Stuart B who is 4 weeks away from competing in the Bolton Ironman Triathlon got round the 60 mile course with Ally Mac in 3:52. Bob S and Craig D were also competing. Well done lads. Plenty of compliments about the kit.
