Minority Sports....

This probably only appeals to me but here goes anyway.  The first round of the Halfords cycle tour series is being held just over the river, a mere 3 miles away, on Tuesday evening, 25 May. 
The main event starts at 7pm but there's a fun race that kicks the event off at 6pm.  The main event involves 10 teams of 5 professional cyclists racing for an hour around a tight little course.  This is the first of 10 rounds and highlights will be broadcast on ITV4 at 7pm on Wednesday, 26 May.

The fun event involves teams of amateur cyclists recruited from local companies, each with a professional cyclist.

I'll be cycling up there, aiming to leave just after 5pm.  Anyone interested in forming a Crossfields peloton and going up to see it, please drop a contact number/email address at the crosswhatfields@gmail.com account.  More details here

And a little afterthought: If you want to get back on a bike but are a bit nervous about riding in traffic, Lewisham council are offering free adult cycle lessons.  Your free lesson can be tailored to your needs, be it road confidence, cycling in traffic, positioning, rules of the road. Call 020 8314 2216, email roadsafetyeducation@lewisham.gov.uk or visit the website
