SADDLEWORTH CLARION cyclist Richard Tayles has pedalled his way to victory in an event in France.
Marsden-based Tayles continued his fine racing form as he triumphed in a race at Saint Varentin which is in the Deux Sevres region of France.
Tayles races while on holiday and the French joke he is from Sadd-le-worth.
Thinking about France, the club will be following Bury Clarion’s Adam and Simon Yates in July’s Tour De France.
Clarion rider Andy Thornley was the best rider in the 50/59 years age category in the Glossop Kinder Velo time trial.
The 50-year-old completed the nine-mile, hilly course in 24min 26sec, knocking two minutes off his previous best time.
The club is also hosting two Audax rides on July 9 with a challenging 120km route over to Bretton and a 200km route to Slaidburn.
The rides are open to all, but are for serious and competent cyclists.
All cyclists are welcome on the club’s regular runs each weekend. They hold A and B rides each Sunday a C ride every Saturday and a Social ride on the last Saturday of each month.
