Wheelers begin the cycling season with a 50-mile ride

BOSTON Wheelers got their season off to good start on Sunday - with the traditional curtain raiser, the Club Reliability Ride.

Apart from a stiff wind on some parts of the route, weather conditions where near perfect with 15 riders taking part the 50-mile course was completed in a time of 2 hrs 40 minutes, with an average speed of more than 19mph.

Two other members took on the 35-mile ride and also recorded a good time.

Tomorrow sees Boston hosting the inter-club 18 mile hilly time trial where they are joined by Alford and Skegness Wheelers.

The event starts at 10am at Mareham le Fen.
