Busy weekend for Wheelers

Last weekend was a busy one for the Retford and District Wheelers both on the track and on the road.

Matthew Waters competed at Manchester Velodrome on Saturday, winning two six-lap races riding behind the Derny motor bikes, but had the misfortune of crashing at 30 mph in the Points race and needed to be treated at the local hospital.

Fortunately he suffered nothing worse than bad bruising and friction burns.

Graham Waters and Paul Austin spent Sunday afternoon training with the League of Veteran Racing Cyclists, again at Manchester Velodrome.

Roger Pennington, Nigel Richardson and Keith Rolfe participated in the Annual Tommy Simpson 55 mile reliability ride.

The club ride this Sunday will be to Saxilby.

Meet in the Market Square at 9am.
