Mark Goodridge - Kit Secretary
I've been cycling since the early 1980's, been a member of The Glendene CC, Tiptree Velo and now Godric CC. Used to Time Trial and race but now just like to ride my bike, drink coffee and eat cake!! Notable things, London-Paris in 2014. Done the Club Des Cingles du Mont-Ventoux in 2014 consisting of 3 ascents of Ventoux in one day from Bedoin, Malaucene and Sault, tough ride, won't attempt that again. Have Track accreditation for London and Derby Velodromes and have ridden Manchester, London, Welwyn, Derby and Calshot, again, this is something I would recommend you have a go at! Rode for GB in the Age Related Worlds Road Race in Albi, France in 2017, although I never came anywhere, certainly a highlight of my career. Rode the Paris-Roubaix Challenge in 2019, 172km including 54km of cobbled sections - has been on my bucket list, its tough, not again!! Have taken a few groups over to France to ride the mountains and watch the Tour. Love all things cycling, can repair most things on a bike (can't do wheels, its an art I admire), watch it on TV as much as I can (fortunately I have a wife who will watch, record and watch it again with me) and will help anyone who needs it!! Stay Safe, Mark.
