Impressive recent results and a growing membership have underlined how much Gravesend Cycling Club’s fortunes have improved this season.
Steve Gibson is a man in form at the moment, placing ninth in a SERRL road race at Cyclopark, and setting a personal best in the last race of 23m05s in the 10-mile club time trials out of Grain.
Other results in the time-trial were: Mike Coulter 25m37s, Steve Harrington 25m39s, Kevin Gleadow 26m33s, Dave Barclay 27m00s, Adie Crothall 27m52s, Keith Ward 29m03s, Karl Firmin 32m01s and Mike Jones 33m39s.
Results from the two earlier time trials were: race one - Graham Terry 24m36s, Coulter 24m55s, Leon Gower 25m02s, Gleadow 25m52s, Steve Harrington 26m05s, Steve Hunter 26m54s, Ward 27m54s, Crothall 28m17s, Mike Harrington 29m53s and Firmin 29m59s.
Race two - Gibson 23m29s, Gower 25m48s, Barclay 27m08s, David Evans 28m21s, Ward 29m23s, Mike Harrington 32m00s, Firmin 32m05s and Jones 32m44s.
Gibson rode a 10m event in Surrey recording 24m35s, while Gleadow rode the Kent Cycling Association’s 10m TT on the A20 in 26m07s.
Coulter and Gleadow competed in a 25-mile event between Ashford and Canterbury with times of 1hr04m44s and 1hr05m52s respectively.
This weekend was exceptionally windy but Gleadow managed 26m02s on the Grain 10-mile course while Coulter recorded 1hr23m58s for the 30-mile Leeds-Ashord course.
Gravesend CC holds club runs on Saturdays from Cyclopark and on Sundays from Cobham War Memorial.
Club nights are on the first Wednesday of each month at Cycopark café from 7.30pm.
