100 in 8 event is getting closer and and some club members are getting some serious miles in the legs for the ride.
Brian Blakelock rode a recce over the Bollihope and Paul Sefton got some steady miles in over the weekend, Andy Downs was top mile muncher in the club again last week with Trevor Jones and Andrew Wilson not far behind.
Andrew was spotted mincing around town, test riding/showing off his new bike and designer saddle bag (look closely) in preparation for the big day…
This event used to be organised by CWCC, but I cant find anything on their website about this years event but there are a few guys from Hartlepool Cycling Collective doing the ride and they have sent the info to me.
It will be a good training ride for our 100/8, and it would be nice to get a group together from Hartlepool CC. if anyone is interested please drop me a line

Club 10m TT mid week series
1st Thursday in May and running for approx. 8 weeks, numbers dependant is a club 10 on course T 107. This course starts 200 metres before the Cowpen Bewley Visitors Centre on the Seal Sands road, proceeds to the Seal Sands roundabout where a left turn is made. Proceed to power station roundabout then double back and complete the course in reverse finishing just before the railway bridge.
This is a new course for 2020,so we are discussing holding a trial run before the season gets fully under way to see where we need to marshal around the course etc.
