A good sportive through the wilds of Northumberland, with a record club turnout of nine riders. We enjoyed the company of some new faces, our guest riders all putting in a creditable performance on the day. Good work Pedro Davegado, Jaques Andrewquetil and Tejan Van Glenderen!
Looking keen as we set off from Woolsington to the start

|This was the largest sportive ride we've participated in thus far, with over 2,000 riders starting off from the Newcastle Falcons' stadium, of which 1,300 were doing our 100km circuit.|

Stats for the day: distance 101km, average speed 25.2kph, in 4 hours and three minutes. Fastest speed in the peloton on a downhill 48.1mph, 77kph! Take a bow Carlos (although Jan believes he clocked 78kph...). The author's maximum? A mere 62.6kph, quite fast enough...
