Team Bader Amputees Ride Again



Jonny Ackroyd with Margaret "Maggz" Biggs

Maggz reports:

Team Bader Cycling are off again this weekend. Saturday’s 25mile Time Trial bash along the A19, in the Thirsk, N Yorkshire area, for Team Bader Cycling members Jonny and Maggz. Both below knee amputees.

This is only Jonny’s second event at a 25 mile distance. ‘I’ve been doing some training’ said Jonny. So no doubt he’ll do a massive improvement on his previous best time of 1hr 19minutes.

It’s a very popular course amoung time trial racing cyclists. This Yorkshire Road Club event ‘Tudor Rose’ has a field of 120 riders, of whom 15 are ladies, with 10 riders as reserves, hoping someone will not turn up to ride on the day. All will be hoping to win the ‘Tudor Rose’ trophy, but everyone will hope to do a PB, personal best, time on the day.

Am off to enjoy living the dream again.

Join us in wishing the dynamic duo the best of luck today…We’ll be looking forward to the after race report once you’ve recovered, guys!
