This years freewheel competition will take place on Saturday 29th October at 10.30am at Farthingstone. The meeting point is in Farthingstone at the top of the hill on the road to Weedon. Competitors can make their own way there or go on the normal Saturday A ride – or any other ride that may be going there. You will get two goes at freewheeling towards Weedon from a held up start. Whoever travels the furthest wins. Duncan White will be doing the running about with little flags marking how far you go up the other side.
