On Yer Bike – Visiter Column – Article 83

So glad you could join us again on a narrative ride through the hustle and bustle of everyday life that’s peppered with gorgeous sunshine and Indian September days in the saddle. Over the next hannah-and-ken-leading-the-ride-group-copyfew weeks we will be looking to test out some of the best autumn and winter kit that is on the market for our readers and riders as the nights draw in and the leaves begin to fall. But before then I have more from our local cycling club and the final results of their Club 10 mile TT point’s championship.

The other Sunday was an exciting day for Southport Cycling Club for as well as the youth get together for a group photograph the 125 year old ever popular national cycling magazine ‘Cycling Weekly’ were coming to report on the Southport Cycling Club! Organized by club secretary Ken Beck, Cycling Weekly’s reporter Hannah Bussey together with their photographer Andrew joined the club for their Sunday Club run to the cycle friendly scrummy feeding station at the Twin Lakes Velo Café near Croston. At around 9.30am just short of 60 club members set off to ride in three groups to the cyclists’ café. With its ample cycle parking, good food and fine views the Twin Lakes Velo Café is fast becoming the coffee and cake venue of choice for new and seasoned cyclists alike.

I was lucky enough to be able to join the group that included both Ken and Hannah. Ken had chosen a route that was just a half mile shy of 50 miles from door to door of the clubhouse. To ensure 20160904_132516-copythe group was suitably hungry when we arrived at the Twin Lakes Velo Café Ken took us on a 35 miles pre café ride session that showcased Southport’s wonderful seafront before leading us out over the Lancashire Plains to the foothills of the West Pennine Moors. During the ride club chairman and Super Randonneur Alan Taylor kept Hannah and the ride group entertained with his stories of past Southport champions that included Tour of Britain Winner Bill Bradley and five times National Hill climb Champion Jim Henderson together with the club’s and Southport’s proud history of cycling.

After a great lunch at the Twin Lakes Café the club made their way back to their Clubhouse in Victoria Park before bidding farewell to Hannah who had thoroughly enjoyed her ride. She confessed to having never visited Southport before but vowed to return in the future as she found Lord St so

Well done to Pete Leonard for just beating junior rider Dave Unsworth at the last event of the season to win the event overall. During the season there were 189 riders taking part from 44 different

clubs! Thanks also to the marshals and timekeepers without whom this great event couldn’t take place.

Keep peddlin’
