Doug sets the new male standard (50-59) age group record covdering the 209.23 miles in 13 hours 31 min with an average speed of 15.48mph     Here is Doug's ride report: September 11, 2019 Doug Chivington Ohio South to North Route 50-59 Age Group   Exact Location: Start was the Cincinnati Zoo Entrance on Vine St and Finish was the Toledo Zoo Entrance on Rt 25. What were the conditions like? Conditions were good but humid, temperatures reached upper 80’s in the afternoon and high 60’s low 70’s at the start.   We had a WSW wind and in the afternoon reached 10-12 MPH.   Experienced some difficult cross winds in the late afternoon, strong enough that a passing truck knocked off the amber lights from the follow vehicle.  Fortunately the lights were only scratched and battle beaten but still in good operation to continue the attempt. We left the hotel at 3:45a and started at approximately 4:00a to get a jump on Cincinnati commuter traffic and rode 3 hours in the dark hours of the morning.  Traffic was light through Cincinnati and Dayton area considering the time of day.   The first 50 miles were rolling hills and we climbed 2900 [...]

Joe Barr – Ireland E-W – 2019-09-01

Congratulations to Joe Barr for setting the new Ireland East to West crossing for male (60-69) on a standard Bike Here is his ride report for the great adventure: Rider:  Joe Barr - Record Attempt: East to West  Ireland On Sunday September 1st 2019 at 7.00am I started the East to West of Ireland point to point record. Directly below the Wicklow Head Lighthouse on the East coast of Ireland. It was a dry but cold morning light wind which was forecast to get very strong as the morning progressed and it did, almost 200miles of direct headwind. The reason for this record was for two reasons, firstly to help promote the WUCA point to point records in Ireland and we choose to do this shorter one with  a view to the new riders seeing it as a distance they could challenge themselves on over the next year. And Secondly from a personal point of another WUCA race in Ireland for my team and the oppertunity to hold all the WUCA records in Ireland at the same time ... a first ever I believe... I expect it will not be for long. I used two standard road bikes, a Colnago [...]
