FWCC were represented south of the border this weekend at the Cycling Weekly 125 Sportive in Cheshire. Fiona Maitland along with 11 year old son Kyle opted for the 40 mile route whilst Fraser Maitland and Mikey Allen chose to take on the 125 mile ‘epic’ route. Starting out at the revered Oulton Park Race Circuit both pairs of riders completed an untimed lap of the circuit giving them an opportunity to recce the circuit before the all-important timed lap at the end of the event. From here riders started on an easterly tack passing through the pretty village of Audlem, then on up to Wybunbury. Fiona and Kyle’s route veered off west to head for the finish, while Mikey and Fraser and a strong group of riders from local Chorley Cycling Club continued to the 100 mile marker, and their toughest challenge of the day, Mow Cop. Fiona and Kyle completed the 40 mile circuit in 3.09 with Kyle continuing to do further laps, increasing his mileage to 62 miles, whilst Mikey and Fraser produced a strong performance to complete at total of 130 miles with a moving time of 6 hours and 56 minutes.
