CONGRATULATIONS to:

TA EAST MEMBER IAN MACKENZIE

for his 25 minute Personal Best ride of 5:28:02 in the East District CA 100. A good baptism for his new Geoff Booker trike.

There is also a slide show on the TA Website under the heading “Jane & Mark in the Mersey 24”, but ranging to the solo riders as well. Click the arrows on the right of the photos to move to the next one.

 

Final distances have just been announced:

Jim Hopper  345.3 miles.

Dave Stokes 282.75

And overall tandem winners Mark Brooking & Jane Moore     347.95

 

There is a quite outstanding ten-minute video of the Mersey 24, centering on Michael Broadwith’s win, but in which many TA marshals and officials feature prominently at :

 

The video includes a good shot of our East members on tandem trike and is made to a very high standard – really not to be missed.

21” TRIKE OR TRIKE FRAME WANTED:

 

Boyd Nicholas from Bury St Edmunds writes:

As a chap more in the ‘loop’ than me in the tricycle world, please could you let me know if you come across a 21” lightweight frame or whole trike, my blue frame has always been a little large for me so I am on the look out for a new one, perhaps to ride some vtta tt’s on. A swap with someone who has a frame a little too small for them and would prefer a 23” is also a possibility.

Contact Boyd on 01284 700165 or boyd.nicholas@talktalk.net
