Default British Heart Foundation Ride Sherwood Pines 2011

Some of us RC racers prefer a less noisy fiddly racing and like to get fit at the same time.
So a bunch of us did the British Heart Foundation Charity ride on Sunday Oct 16th Starting at Sherwood Pines.. It was 36 miles out to Clumber park and around then back.
RC Racers were
Glyn " BRM" Ward
Brian Shardlow
Mat Bridge
Lee Spencer
Steven " Ex Big Bad " Bond
Mick Ramsbottom
And Brians Mate Adam
Unfortunatly I have to report that due to all the training this last year and a half.. I finnished first in 2hrs 44 mins. Next was Glyn, Mat and Lee... including punctures at 3 hrs and the Brian , Adam and Mick at 3hrs 30 mins..
Good time was had by all as can be seen by the smiles... Next task for me is a Triathlon in July 2012...EeeeeeK !

Team On*One.. Not very often you will see this many Carbon Fiber On-Ones together.. We saw one steel on-one inbred all day.. Brian and Lee have the Whippet and mines a 456.

Team at the Start

Me Smiling at the end ....... Where are my crew ???? " There WAy Behind YOU !"

Awesome, well done all of you

What's this Triathalon you have in mind? I'd like to try something like that (I would be super rubbish at it!)

Are you raising money online anywhere for BHF?
