We at Team Mum clearly have a soft-spot for getting up at 4am on a Sunday. In addition, a love of competeing in glorious Richmond Park and a sense of satisfaction created by drinking tea after pedalling our lights-out, have made us keen to participate in the London Dynamo TT series.
The series has been terrifically well organised by the ever-capable Rebecca Slack and new recruit, Martin Williamson. The Dynamos are also to be commended for hauling themselves out of bed to support both their club’s initiative and the Time Trialling scene. There is always a friendly atmosphere and a sense of cameraderie between the riders. The weather has been pretty good too. Hoorah!
Charlotte and Sam were allowed to compete on the tandem at this event, reflecting the fact that this series is as much about having fun and “having a go” as it is about serious testing. The tandem generated quite a lot of excitement, especially since the pair set the fastest time of the day.
Up next was Lydia who set the fastest time for a lady on a road bike. She also improved on her PB. This means that the “Women’s Road” category has been won by a LMNH rider at every event this summer. We’re very proud!
Not content with riding the tandem, Charlotte had also entered as a solo rider in the TT bike category. Half an hour after crossing the line, she was back on a bike and ready to race.
The earlier effort served as a decent warm-up and she rode well enough to claim first place in her event.
Thanks again to London Dynamo and to David Rowe for his wonderful photographs.
