Tour of Cambridgeshire

Two Medway Velo members travelled to Peterborough to take part in the Tour of Cambridgeshire events.

Jon Graciano took 23rd place in the 50 – 54 age group in the Tour of Cambridgeshire Road Race.

The Tour of Cambridgeshire Men’s Road Race takes on a high-speed 100-mile route through Cambridgeshire, with riders being split into UCI Masters age groups, each group having a separate, start and with closed road to give a professional racing experience.

Jon almost crashed three times but managed to keep the bike upright, and he worked hard to regain the bunch each time.

Rita Williams opted for the Gran Fondo event, covering 70 miles. Despite also facing problems with crashes resulting from the strong winds, Rita completed her event in just over five hours.

Well done both!
