Club Members (and others) on the 2012 Rutland and Beyond Audax in February.

      A fantastic ride around Leicestershire and Rutland, covering 102km. The rolling countryside is usually only half the challenge of the ride as more often than not, there is snow and ice on the ground. 
      The 2012 edition saw 174 riders register and 104 complete the route. 
      As usual with Leicester Forest events, it was as much about the 'social' as the riding and our fantastic army of helpers were out in force to make sure that each checkpoint (Kaff) welcomed every rider with a smile and the offer of a cuppa. The catering at the end of the ride included everything from pizza, millionaire's shortbread, egg cobs and energy gels. All that and an armchair to slump in to. You don't get that on yer 35 quid sportives...
      Thanks to everyone that took part, Steve for his work at East Carlton, everyone back at the clubhouse and especially Kim for putting the whole show on.
