Once again, the club was well represented at the popular Medway Velo 10 mile time trial on the Isle of Grain course. The wind was a stiff north easterly, which is the ideal direction for the course as it gives some assistance on the gradual climb to the turn. The event was effectively 3 events in 1 as there were separate prizes for tandems, 2-up teams and solo riders.
Most club riders took part in the solo event, but second claim member Richard McVey, partnered by Adalta CC team mate Spencer Wood, came first in the 2-up event with a time of 22.20.
