The summer months have so far been put to good use by various club members by cycling to events; this has been recently heralded as a “new phenomenon” by Mike Murray in his report for the Withernsea 5 mile. I’m sure one or two of our members may be inclined to ask what’s so new about that ? John Baker in particular has been cycling to events for years and indeed cycled to the Withernsea race although not with our group. But I think Mike may be referring to the dubious amount of after race “refreshment” or beerdration as I like to call it, that being car free (and care free) allows us to consume.
So the Walkington 10k came round again as is tradition the race is held on a Friday night, for me this is one of my favourite races in the calendar & I always look forward to it, also this was my first ever race back in 2012 so it holds a special place in my heart. Beverley AC do a cracking job with this race, it’s always well supported, plenty of marshals on route helping out & a cracking t-shirt at the end.
