A combined team from Newham Cyclists men’s elite and vintage squads, eight in all, set out at 10.15 am Â from the View Tube inÂ cool but dry conditions to complete the only etape of theÂ 21 mile Tour of Newham.
Some tricky windy conditions were overcome on the new trial stretches aroundÂ North Woolwich and up the Roding Valley. Â A high rate of attrition meant that only 2 riders (one each from the vintage and elite categories) made it, at 2.00pm. from the foothills of the Lea Towpath up the final col de Greenway to the View Tube and a pot of Earl Grey.
Our next Newham ride is on Sunday 14 June.
