BIKE OF THE WEEK AND JOINT BICYCLIST OF THE WEEK
Mark Hancock's outing to the velodrome introduced plenty of members to the art of cycling in circles (ovals actually). A lovely day at the Herne Hill veldrome and a special mention to Fran Steadman for her excellent power and control on her first day riding a fixed wheel.
Special thanks to Peter Trimming for coming out to take a most excellent collection of photographs featuring people grimacing with effort.
