After special dispensation from National Committee and the North DC regional board we had a bumper field of 150 riders and 4 reserves and 3 COVID Compliant tandem pairings. A outdoor location was sought for the HQ with enough parking to accommodate the field size and a great Socially Distance sign on was provided with one way systems and number collection from a series of Washing lines to provide a No Contact Sign on Sign Out facility! Why put anyone in danger if riders can sign and collect their number (a couple did have an issue collecting the correct one!!)

Tandems went off first at 14:02 with a breeze blowing around the Keswick fells and Valley as is normal for the A66 Courses as the weather blows down the Newlands and Borrowdale Valleys and then bounces off Skiddaw, giving 4 clear sections of the dog leg style course with differing wind directions. Jack and Alison Peasgood came home first tandem in 21:07

Organiser Russell McLean started first solo at 14:11 and he got to 8 mile mark before the heavens opened giving classic lake district weather for nearly all riders! With the field seeded slowest to fastest we got to the fast men and the finish flag had went from being fully blown out from a breezy North Westerly to hanging limply. Early leader from organising Club Beacon Wheelers was James Nesfield in 20:15 eventually good enough for 7th Place.

The battle for the womens podium took place across the middle of the field in the worse of the weather conditions Phil Jones Drag2Zero stormed round in 19:23 taking the Course from Richard Bickley Border City Wheelers.

The other podium steps were taken by Dougi Watson GTR – Return to Life in 19:41 and Ben Lloyd Pro Vision Cycle Clothing turning to time trialling with no road racing available this season came in third with 19:42.
