It is only a few weeks since the 2014 racing season finished, yet keen time trialists and road men are already thinking about next season and have started doing their basic training miles in preparation for next year’s racing program. To this end a number of the Retford and District Wheelers are now joining up with the South Yorkshire chain gang on Saturday afternoons as it passes through North Nottinghamshire villages.

Retford and District Wheeler’s held a trial club run last Sunday and it proved to be a popular arrangement for their ride to Southwell. The creation of two separate groups of riders both aiming for the same destination, but by different routes, attracted much interest with new riders joining the regulars who preferred a steadier pace while the more energetic followed a longer and hillier route.

Retford and District Wheelers club run this Sunday will be to Southwell. In order to cater for a wider range of abilities the club are organising two distinct groups, one of which will allow for a slower ride for or those who may be not so fit or would prefer a more comfortable pace. Both groups will meet in Retford market square at 9.30am, the distance will be about 50 miles and the route will be undulating. Riders of all abilities are invited to join the regulars where you will receive a warm welcome.
