The latest news from the North Bucks Road Club, including club news and announcements; club events and results; news relating to the wider cycling community. Club event results are periodically moved to the "Club Events" area, accessible from the menu above.

Steve Abraham is going to attempt a very long standing cycling record: the most miles covered in a calendar year. The current record was set in 1939 by Tommy Godwin, who set the astonishing mark of 75,065 miles - and later completed 100,000 miles in 500 days.

Steve has a website - oneyeartimetrial.org.uk - where more information can be found, and offers of assistance can be made. The site is still being set up, but there's a page outlining how he's set up a schedule for 2015. Actually, he's calculated more than one schedule, and both look to a significant improvement over Godwin's mileage.

Update: Steve's record attempt is featured on road.cc: Audax UK ace Steve Abraham aims for Tommy Godwin's "unbreakable" Year Record in 2015
