Tour De Cheshire

Tour De Cheshire 28th July

Six team members took part in this weekends training "Tour de Cheshire". The ride was led by Sir Bradley Wiggins (Steve Weaver ) with several pick up points on route. The Froomes (Pete and Sue Hudson),Victoria Pendelton (Allison Weaver) and Laura Trott ( Paula) joined at the Deanwater. Sir Chris Hoy ( John Gregory ) in keeping with his recent retirement, had a late lie in and joined the team at Redesmere.

 We raced along the lanes and tried our rough stuff skills on the bridleway through Davenport Hall. David Brailsford and Sky team doctor ( Paul and Pam) joined the team for refreshments at The Bluebell and offer the team support and racing updates via Cycling weekly.

 After lunch the Froomes headed of to Congleton for a train back to Poynton. The rest of the team sprinted back to Stockport ,or Redesmere in Sir Chris Hoys case, surviving one torrential down pour on the way.

Well done team Wiggo.
