Quick Release Cycling Club took part in the inaugural Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 event on Sunday 4th August.
In total 11 of our members represented QRCC in the mass particpation ride.
QRCC had two teams for the Club Challenge represented by Jake Strevens, Jeremy Hodges, Gary Cheetham, Luke Coleman, Dave Coleman, Paul Rook,Jeff Fox and Rhys Rolfe.
Daniel Wales, Robert Gawley and Stephen Butt also rode solo setting off at an earlier time.
The group of 8 worked fantastically well together in pair formation taking turns on the front, this allowed those on the back of the bunch adequate recovery time from the wind before taking there own turn at the front. 100 miles in an excellent working group was a pleasure, coupled with the crowds and the amount of cyclists its something i dont think any of us will ever forget. We are looking forward to more of us representing QRCC in 2014!
Quick Release Cycling Club swapped local scenery for the beautiful Box Hill on Bank Holiday Monday. 6 members travelled down to Dorking in Surrey to ride the climb used in Olympic Road Race at London 2012.
The professional peloton completed 10 mile loops which included the climb of Box Hill a total of 9 times, we completed two loops and in total climbed the hill 4 times. For Robert Gawley and Jeremy Hodges it was there first time at Box Hill and they thoroughly enjoyed the day as did Box Hill veterans Dave Coleman, Gary Cheetham, Jake Strevens and Luke Coleman.
It was a great day with the Sun shining and lots of other cyclists
about. Box Hill and Dorking is simply a great place to ride a bike, we
hope more Quick Release CC members can join us next time!
