Six Corallian riders completed the Harlequin Hack in damp conditions today. Nick pre-rode it on Friday in windy conditions! Unfortunately Louis had a fall before Cogges so had to abandon. No serious injuries I'm happy to report. Me and Chris completed the ride as a route check the week before.

In total 116 riders set out in the morning and 112 completed the route (one other had mechanical issues and two others abandoned to help). Which is a massive new record for this audax.

Huge thanks to Nick D, June, Tracey, Jasmine, Des, Hugo, Nick S, Chris and Louis for their help at HQ and at the controls. A massive thanks to Kath Boyce at Flexicare for the catering, it looks like we will have raised over £500 for the charity :)

We had lots of happy riders despite the iffy conditions and have already received several emails...

"Massive thanks to all involved with the harlequin hack today it was my first audax and I loved it even though there was far too much rain and mud lol"

"Thanks for organising today John. Excellent route and excellent spread on return!"

"Just a note to say a big thank you for today's event. It was a lovely route and very well organised."

"Thanks for organising this event, all fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed the ride albeit a bit damp towards the end!"

"Today was my first Harlequin Hack. A big thank you to you and the rest of the team for such a well organised event. The post-ride refreshments were fantastic. I'll definitely be keeping my diary free for next year's ride."

The hall is already booked for 14th April 2019 :)
