    It was another cold, inhospitable night but at least the threatened rain and hail held off. There was a good turn-out, especially from the private entrants. Thanks all for taking part. Thanks also for Graham and Pater for the timing and Sam for the signs.

    Despite the tough course and cool weather there was a good turnout, 8 Wheelers and 3 private entrants. It was good to see several of our less regular time-trialists joining in the "fun". Well done to all of them!

    Some good times on a very cold evening.

  • 18 Oct 20

    It wasn't a bright, sunny autumn morning, - more still, chilly gloom. Never mind, it wasn't wet and there was no head-wind, so I'm sure everyone enjoyed their brisk sprint up the hill. At any rate, several seemed to be panting with enjoyment as they reached the end.

  • A lovely morning with sunshine and apparently light winds, which maybe didn't seem so light to those actually racing.

    Well done everyone but especially Alex with an excellent time which required extremely rapid leg spinning.

    Thanks to Lee for the signs and Graham for the times.

    A warm night but with a strongish breeze on the second half.

    Great to see everyone out and well done all riders. Some bringing out some truly classic looking bikes. Although there was a headwind along the A414 it wasn’t until after the foot bridge that is was really felt.

    Wheelers' club 10s make their return!

  • 72" Restricted Gear, F6A/10 course - 1st March

    Nine hardy competitors rode on a sunny but cold and windy morning and all finished. Well done to you all! This event is part of the "Out of Season Best All Rounder" competition (BAR) together with an 81" Restricted Gear 10 and the Hill Climb.

  • The date for the 2020 running of the annual Herts Wheelers Open 10 mile time trial has been confirmed for 20th June 2020. Put the date in your diary - this is a popular event on a fast course!

    After last weeks postponement in the face of a dire (and mostly inaccurate) weather forecast the Wheelers' hill climbers re-convened at Digswell. The weather was not very encouraging but, fortunately, there was next to no rain during the event. Gareth put everyone else in the shade with a time that bettered his 2017 effort by 2 seconds and equaling Karl Willis's 2014 time on the same course. Next came Barry, who had only come to spectate, but produced a very creditable time on his utility bike.

    Barry's win and failure to participate in any earlier events wins him the coveted scrubbing brush. Steve and Peter survive to compete for the out of season best all-rounder trophy at the hill-climb on October 6th.

    A large turnout on a lovely morning.

    Four Wheelers and six private entries on what turned out to be a good night.

    The good conditions prior to the start attracted a lot or riders to this popular course. Alas only 5 were Wheelers, but these included new to racing Will Bowen, who showed the benefits of his week of training in the Derbyshire hills by posting the impressive time of 27.13 for his first ever TT.
