2015 was a great year for the Association with some fantastic rides achieved by our members. Records galore were broken, the stand out being Steve Irwin’s 30mph plus 49.30 in the Lancaster 25 on Levens, the fastest ever on an L course by a local rider. Aided and abetted by rival and friend Richard Bideau, the complexion of Lancashire time trialling was changed forever.
Promotions were a success again as was the dinner. 2016 looks set to be a great year with us once again promoting an open 100 after several years break. In late July at Keswick, it covers 4 laps of the 25 course. Helpers and riders are required!
Best wishes for a successful season.
An excellent 2014 showed the future is bright for the NLTTA. Two massive fields in the combined clubs events, strong support for the inaugural points competition and increased member club affiliation all indicate we are heading in the right direction. But the job is by no means finished, the Association still needs plenty of assistance with promotions and support, so that in future we can consider the promotion of the flagship longer events missing from the calendar.
I wish you all the best of luck for 2015 and ride safely.
