Revel Winter XC Round 1

CUCC MTB Captain, Tom Simpson reports:

​The last Sunday of October was the date of the first round of the KLMTB Revel Outdoors Winter XC Series, and we had a strong CUCC contingent of five riders head over to Thetford forest to race. The changing clocks (we eventually worked out) would allow us an extra hour in bed, which was a relief as we had been busy trying to obtain a bike for Arnav to race on well into the evening. Myself, Arnav Kapur, Sam Haigh and Toby Cowell rode the 1.5hr course format – Toby in the junior category – while Andy Zhao chose the slightly shorter 1hr race.Continue reading

Tour to Ely

Emilie Lostis writes:

Yesterday saw CUCC’s first touring ride of the year. It was a short social trip to Ely, with impressive attendance by 11 keen cyclists. We set of at 9.30am, and as the group was particularly fast, we reached Ely before 11am. We had a look around town, and were approached by an elderly gentleman near the Cathedral who was very happy to see us there as he’d been somehow involved with the club back in the days!

The Tourists at Ely Cathedral

 

He was only too happy to take a few pictures of us, after which we explored the vegan market that was on in the city centre. Everyone experimented with animal-free nibbles with more or less satisfaction (the Wandering Yak van got our seal of approval, but the rice milk in the coffees less so…), and with a full belly we got back on the road.

The Vegan Market

 

All but 2 decided to join the ride home – slightly longer and faster through the Fens – despite the easy option of a train back offered, and everyone made it home safely by 2pm.

It was great to see so many enthusiastic students on the road, and we’ll be planning many more themed rides throughout the year!Continue reading
