The ride took the club riders over the tough Brecon Beacons National park , through Abergaveny, Ross on Wye, Monmouth, Cheltenham and Oxford arriving in High Wycombe Guild Hall at 13:30. The pair were greeted by Club President Gordon Wright and Margaret Wright and many Family and Freinds .
The target sponsorship to be raised is set at £1000 .This is almost complete and additional pledges should ensure this target is hit over the next few days; if you would like to donate then please visit;
Over 15 hours later finishing at MacDonalds in High Wycombe!
Kevin holloway and Nick calkin (below) took place in the www.trailbreak.co.uk navigator race at Princes Risborough, today.
The 3.5 hour MTB orienteering used a new format where each competitor had to complete 8 checkpoints in a designated order before qualifying to complete the rest of the course.
With local knowledge a great help, Kevin and Nick managed to clear most of the checkpoints, despite early rain making the chalky bridleways fairly tricky, to be placed 1st and 2nd overall. Nick finished on time with 540 points in 1st place and Kevin 2nd, just 10 points behind on 530.
Ralph Dadswell also competed and was placed further down the rankings.
Finally got around to updating the blog after the final day.
What was expected to be (relatively speaking!) an easier day turned into an epic, with just 1600 metres of climbing and 80 kms of riding I wasn’t too worried about completing the 2008 Trans Germany and getting that rare finishers jersey.
But nothing should be taken for granted. At about 50kms we could see a storm ahead and Chippo said ‘that looks like big rain’, an under statement.
The temperature dropped and then the heavens opened with, first, freezing rain and then hailstones. I was drenched and freezing.
Then again, with just 5 miles to go a hoooge thunderstorm sacred the bejesus out of us. Massive claps of thunder right over us and lightning either side to freak us out!
As previously mentioned we will not surrender and a slippy, slidey mud caked last few miles took us to the ultimate finish line!
We hit the beers, got our jerseys and finished about 160 something out of 220 starters!
Thanks to all our donators and supporters.

Wow , its over on what had to be the strangest of days ( weather wise).
Stage 7 started off in 30c heat and as per usual a 400m climb. We the hit lots of single track and rooty knarly forest which was superb until the heavens opened. We rode through heavy rain and hailstones as big a peppermints which made the forests rather muddy slippy and horrid.
The last 20k went up ( as usual ) but we headed up into a large storm that enveloped you in lightening and thunder (the whole time we where on the climb ) it took an age to get off the mountain and it was terrifying , lightning either side if you as you went up and deep thunder that you could feel deep in you core .
On the final downhill I fell off 4 times as the tracks and grass where so slippy ( sometimes its best to just not use your brakes) no damage done we just wanted to get this stage done.
On the run into the finish we unfurled the union jack and rode over the finish line to get our medals and get interviewed, an awesome day , an awesome week. We didn’t come last neither so a rather big bonus that.
We are going back for more next year and this time we will have a bigger team.
Bring on trans germany 2009
