• It’s nearly Easter and with better weather upon us (and hopefully an end to the horrific winds that have blighted average speeds seemingly since Christmas) many of us are taking the opportunity to dust off the summer bike and start getting some longer rides in.

    DCC members posted some impressive long rides last week with Michelle Pennington and Ruth Tomlin achieving an impressive 1-2 knockout punch completing both the New Forest Sportive and the Dorset Audax and clocking up an epic 150 mile weekend in the saddle!

    Back in Daventry and with three months to go Daventry to Paris training is in full swing with Sonia Martin and Alisa Osbourne raising the bar by getting multiple training rides in over the weekend!

    With the sun due to shine over the bank holiday there is plenty to look forward to over the weekend but the highlight promises to be Saturday’s group ride to Ilmington cafe – make sure you register your interest on the Facebook page!
