Blaydon Does The Wooler Wheel…

Yesterday a handful of Blaydon Cycle Club members took the (early) trip up to Wooler. Most of us opted for the 100km ride and a few brave souls opted for the 170km route.

A massive thanks has to go to the Wooler Wheel organizers, support staff and volunteers, this included Wooler cycle hub officials, Edinburgh Cycle co-op mechanical support, St John Ambulance and Anderson Drummond photography who were out snapping the riders! (there’s probably more that I forgot)

The only minor issue was huge queues for sign on, but there was a huge amount of riders as well as a new venue for 2014, I have every confidence it will be smoother next time round.

The marshals were at perfect points through the course to assist riders and keep them safe and on course, and any signage was well placed.

The water and feed stops were stocked well with flapjacks, water and assorted other items and were well placed mileage wise.

Every 100km rider that i spoke to enjoyed their day! and i’m sure will be back next year.
