Members of the Lewes Wanderers Cycling Club travelled far and wide at the weekend in pursuit of fast times.

Star rider, Nick Dwyer made a spectacular return to form after his layoff due to injuries, when he posted a rapid time of 19:37 in the RTTC National Championship 10. This event attracted the premier riders in the country and was won by Matt Bottrill in an incredible time of 17:40.

Five Wanderers made the trip to Broadbridge Heath on a newly devised 25 mile course. The top performance from a Lewes rider was Mark Owens whose time of 1:01:40 placed him second in the most improved time category. Other Lewes times were Tom Glandfield (55:54), Michael Valks (1:03:28), Gina McGeever (1:06:04) and John Mankelow (1:12:20).

Father and son Pete and Tom Baker elected to head over to Arundel to compete in the VTTA Wessex 25. The still conditions resulted in some fast times on the day, with Tom (58:06) claiming family bragging rights over Peter who posted a time of 59:38.

Next week four Wanderers are travelling to Kent to compete in the Kent 12 hour time trial with high hopes that they can retain the team trophy for the third consecutive year.
