A quick request for everyone who’d like to attend awards dinner to let Simon Evans have your menu choices as soon as possible using this form – he has to get final numbers to the venue ASAP. Thank you!
Chris Gilligan fought off a strong field of 20+ coasters, to take back the Freewheeling challenge trophy from 2 times winner David Emms who could only manage 4th behind Rich Gildea 2nd, and Paul Demicoli 3rd.
Chris now 2 times winner himself, revealed his last minute training plan in Court Hill whilst eating “4” cakes involved a Saturday night curry, and pre-clubrun Chicken pie for breakfast!
Something new this Saturday – ride to a cafe for coffee/breakfast with other members.

… but it’s very simple! No fixed route or start, just get to the caff with/without friends – ride 5 miles or 50, it’s upto you. Post here or on Facebook if you’re coming, and/or to arrange someone to ride with.
This proved very successful, with a dozen of us arriving by 5 different routes. We shall make this a weekly event – sticking with Benson meet to see how it goes. M
There will be an end of TT season social at the Red Lion in Brightwell cum Sotwell on the 18th August 2016 from 8 p.m. onwards, if you would like to come along please take a look at the menu (here) and ring the pub direct to pre-order your food, hope to see you there. Simon Evans

Club social – Thursday 2nd June
After the Club’s 10 mile TT champs next week on the H10/17r Southmoor course, there will be a Club social in the Lamb and flag at Southmoor from 20:00, see their website for a menu.
As a reminder the Club champs is open to 1st and 2nd claim members only, with 1st claim members given preference in the unlikely event of the TT being oversubscribed.
Fairmile TT results – Thursday 26th May
Steve Mead wins on a warm and fairly still Fairmile course, with Richard Gildea taking 2nd. Also there were notable rides from both under 16 riders: James Ashcroft equaled his course PB and Alex Bosley smashed his PB by 1m40s
