Further development of our Web Site and the introduction of an improved registration process.

We were lucky to have one of the best local bands playing during the afternoon - 'Fay Wray'.
We have already booked them for next year.

BIG CHANGE - By popular demand, the event moved to a Saturday (27th July), and was a great success.

We were lucky to have 2 great bands playing:-  
'Fay Wray' & 'Sporting Life'

About 220 cyclists took part, and who all managed to finish long before it rained about 18:00.

Weather was fantastic, although some cyclists would probably say it was 'too hot' !!!
Another great turnout with 219 cyclists taking part.

'Fay Wray' were again there to entertain us.

But by far and away the biggest success was how much money was raised - £8190.  Absolutely amazing !!!

We were so lucky with the weather. Very wet on both the Friday and Sunday, but Saturday was dry, sunny and warm. Not so many cyclists taking part this year (160), but we did clash with another cycling event organised by 'Wiggle' and there was the America's Cup sailing event taking place in Portsmouth.

'Little Reggie' together with other bands were there to entertain us.

In 2015, we thought the amount of money raised would never be beaten, but it was this year.
A staggering - £8610.
