Meet Hewan - He is all Heart


Q: When did you start and what made you start cycling.

A: I got my first two wheeled bike aged six but had the obligatory 3 wheelers before that. I would say that it was my dad who got me into cycling and I still have the Elswick Stag bicycle that he bought for me as a teenager.

Q: We know you have had some heart issues can you tell us what they were.

Going back to H10/2 A4 for the 30th May and onwards.

On the 30th May we will back to the A4 for our Thursday evening 10tt starting at 19.45.

I've spoken with the works management team and they were very clear that the lights must be gone by 16.30 every evening.

If you are driving out to our TT (Drift Road H10/10) on the 23rd May, please avoid parking on the grass verges in Winkfield Lane.  Last week we had a couple of complaints from residents who cut the verges outside their properties.

A Quick Chat With Les One Of Our Senior Members

Q: When did you start and what made you start cycling 

A: I started cycling “properly” in 2008. Had bikes on a couple of occasions previous to that but did not cycle much. I was a keen squash, cricket and football player but age caught up with me so was looking for another sport. A work colleague encouraged me. Squash damaged me a bit as I have had two hip operations. Like Andy Murray has had.

Q: What sort of riding do you enjoy

Can three groups meet at Velolife??

The first weekend of Spring brought out lots of us this morning - finally the wind has dropped, the sun is out and the temperature is rising.  A couple of the usual clock tower riders took the opportunity to ride out with the Bird Hills group and by all accounts cruised round the 60 miles plus at a speed of over 19mph.  The rest of us met at the Clock Tower at the usual time.  Tom had offered to take a medium-fast group over a hilly 55 miles (average 16-5mph), and the rest of us were set to do a 40 mile route (average 14-16mph).
