Photos from the Mini-GIANTS Run

Wylye Down National Nature Reserve

At the end of July, with 100 registered entrants, we sadly had to cancel our GIANTS Run due to Coronavirus related restrictions.  It should have taken place yesterday 🙁

But with our Informal Runs being such a success, your Chairman and Secretary decided to hold a 66 mile mini-GIANTS Run for 12 section friends who own girder fork bikes.  In glorious weather, it took place yesterday and I believe a great time was had by all.  It was nice of Maurice McGladdery to see us off at the start, and Peter Hallows and Peter Bovenizer be there at the end.

ZigZag not challenging enough for you?

Andrew Rae needs a mention.  While the rest of us struggled up ZigZag Hill on tarmac, Andrew did a bit of green laning on a track that runs parallel to ZigZag.  Should we ban him or give him a prize? The latter in my view 🙂 :).  It’s the red track in the photo on the right; click the image.

Before you view the event photos, please remember that we have our Northern Run on Sunday 6th September and our Last of the Summer Wine Run the following Sunday on the 13th.  Both are limited to 30 riders and require pre-registration. All details can be found in our Events calendar.
