Hello to all Hounslow & District Wheelers,

I am helping to organise "The Jo Cox Way" event which is a five-day, 258-mile bike ride in memory of Jo Cox MP, tragically murdered last year.  This event returns for its second year to celebrate Jos life, her beliefs and all the good work that goes on up and down the UK.
Thirty cyclists will be setting off on Wednesday 26 July from Jos Batley and Spen constituency in West Yorkshire and riding towards London, finishing at the Houses of Parliament on Sunday 30 July.
Your club is invited to join part of all or part of the last day of the ride (23 miles) from Uxbridge to central London. Please come and jump on a bike and pedal alongside us and show your support and to help promote the "More in Common" message

The route is here:
Day 5 (Sunday 30 July) - Uxbridge to Houses of Parliament, London
where you can sign up to take part.

Further information can be found on The Jo Cox Way Facebook page: and also via Twitter @TheJoCoxWay

If anyone is interested in helping to marshal the large group ride into London on the last day, which will have substantial press coverage, please get in touch. In addition to the start at Uxbridge we expect to have a meeting point in Richmond Park.

Kind regards, Lynnette Evans (Cycling UK member, West Yorks.)

I have some items I would like to get rid of as they are taking up to much space in my man Cave.  I have a couple of frames and a mountain bike up for grabs.

Frame 1....Geoffrey Butler aluminium frame. Has scratches on it a few years old. Would be great for a winter bike. Size 51cm c to t. 50.

Frame 2....Ribble gran fondo carbon frame. Has scratches and a few bits of paint knocked of
 Not brilliant condition but again would be ideal for a winter bike. Size 54cm c to t. 50.

Mountain bike.... Canondale lefty. This bike is in not to bad condition. It has a few scratches but not to bad. Hydrolic brakes,etc. Not sure on size for mountain bikes but I think it is a size small but don't quote me on that. 350ono.

Just reply on this thread if interested.

Went down to Newport Velodrome on Wednesday 26 October 2016 to attempt the UCI World Masters Best Performance Standing Start 1 hour record that was held by Jan Brander at a distance of 43.742 km.

New Best Performance achieved 44.271km an improvement of 529m over the existing record and just 78m short of my ride last year.

My thanks go to Jeff Marshall for calling my splits & to Tony Ambrosino for being my mechanic and giving me much appreciated motivation and support on the day.

Thanks also to Chris Lovibond for photograpy & Trevor Gilbert for helping.

I would just like to say the last 3 runs have been very enjoyable, I know I've been missing from the bridge on Sunday's recently (due to racing commitments) but the last 3 weeks rides have been well organised and well ridden, it's so much better now, without the wanna be pros, let's hope we can keep it going through the winter, thanks all.

A grand day out at the Hounslow open 100 today, expertly organised by Jeff Marshall with help from countless members of the club.
It was great to see so many supporters at the event today. As a rider it makes a big difference to see club members cheering from the side of the road
3 club members rode the event. Nic Stagg 3.57.59. Stuart Hewlins 4.02.23. Paul Holdsworth 4.04.23
