A splendid turn out of SROC members gathered for the ride organised by Mike & Mary last Sunday. Glorious June sunshine bathed the scene as the main group departed from Denny Beck at 10 o'clock. A few slightly late riders soon caught the group, and a leisurely pace was set to the coffee stop at Deerslet. After due refreshment there was a three-way split, with some taking the medium route via Beetham, others the long around Farleton Knott and a few with less time to spare taking a roundabout route home. The long and medium groups rejoined on the pier at Arnside (medium group pictured) for lunch. An optional further coffee stop at Leighton Moss was taken by some, while others kept moving and completed the 30-odd miles by mid-afternoon. A very enjoyable outing and a pleasant change, with lots of chances to chat with other riders along the way. More photos in the gallery.

A different format was tried out at Salt Ayre and Scale Hall for the third in the SROC Summer Series today. A short qualifier (The Prologue,) mainly in the Sports Centre grounds, was swiftly followed by a gaffled chase in the intricate Scale Hall area. Overall winner was Quentin Harding who thereby secured ist place in the Mens Open category in the Summer Series. Zoe Harding is in a strong position in the Womens Open category with two events to go. Pictured, Rob Browne is chased by Martyn Roome. More photos in the gallery, full results service via the Results index page.
