The club lunch took place on Saturday 26th Jan. The event was put on to replace the more formal awards dinner, to make it cheaper and more accessible to everyone. It was timed to allow the Saturday ride to go ahead, Barry choosing a time and route to allow everyone to get back in time, even though they might not get an afternoon nap!
See the gallery for Gerry’s pictures of the event.

Forget the hype of Wout Van Aert, the absence of Mathieu Van der Poel, the strength of Phillipe Gilbert and the bad form of Peter Sagan. From an idea 8 months ago, NFCC member Matt Cafferky (and Bill Mayes) tackled the event. Over to Matt in a fantastic report … here
