Witham Wheelers’ second reliability trial of the winter enjoyed better conditions on Sunday.

Fifty-riders riders tackle the rolling 41-mile route down to South Witham, across to Whissendine and back via Waltham-on-the-Wolds.

A strong westerly wind made good group riding skills essential for a comfortable ride, but by and large the groups kept reasonably together well despite an assortment of punctures and mechanical issues, until the pace picked up on the high speed run in back through Saltby.

This Sunday, it is a hilly 39-mile route out into the Vale of Belvoir to Long Clawson. The first group will leave at 9.30am from Grantham Cricket Club on Gorse Lane. All welcome.
