Annual Rough Ride

Marc Bowers was the only rider to finish inside an hour in this year’s Mildenhall Cycling Club Annual Rough Ride.

He powered round the 16-mile circuit of local roads, byways and bridleways in just 59 minutes and 4 seconds.

Demonstrating how beneficial cycling is for your well-being was Marc's father Dave, who still cycles regularly and while the 74-year-old might not have been quite as quick as his son, he still finished in a very respectable time of 1hour 27minutes 14seconds.

Another father and son competing were Garth & Michael Collier. Although Garth started just a minute behind Marc Bowers and at times on the more exposed parts of the course would have seen him, he remained tantalisingly in the distance, finishing 2minutes 22seconds behind him in second place. While seventeen-year-old Michael was the only Under 18 racing, he did very well to record a time a 1hour 21minutes 35seconds.

The event so nearly did not take place, when the Mildenhall Club realised that part of the course was affected by UK Power Networks work which has closed the B1102 in Worlington. But it went ahead due to the generosity of local landowner Mr Dick Mortlock, who he let the Club use a track through his farm.
