2015 Colchester 100 km Ride Report on 27/09/2015

For the third successive year we were blessed with warm and sunny weather for the Colchester 100 km CTC Tourist Competition, hosted by Playgolf Colchester.

Riders at the start line

Thirty-eight riders set off on an anti-clockwise route, through the Stour Valley to Long Melford, over to Finchingfield, and across to Bures before returning to Colchester. Two riders only made it as far as Long Melford (one punctured, and on getting going again, the GPS directed them back to base!), while the rest all made it back within the time limit of 6 hours.

Oliver Morley was the first rider back

Thank you to all the riders for taking part; Derek Snowling for his help both before and after, signing on riders and recording their finish time; Playgolf Colchester for being such a fantastic and friendly host; and to both Wally's Cafe in Acton and Bosworth's Tea Room in Finchingfield for the mid-ride refreshments.
