The start (and finish) straight... (this is part of a set which shows how nice Risby is).
A good day out! Risby is a really pleasant little village just outside Bury St. Edmunds, and the course - a couple of laps of a sporting circuit - was great fun. Some fast bits, some lumpy bits and some hideous headwind (often combined with aforementioned lumps). Managed to finish 21st out of 56. Very pleased with fact I'm starting to turn the bigger gears and keep them turning... though maybe I should have used them less on the lumpy bits...
Very nice post-race atmosphere (a couple of fellow Willesden-ers were there!) and a pleasant evening ride back into Bury with a couple of the West Suffolk Wheelers.
