National 400k audax success for John Forbes

BNECC member John Forbes undertook the challenge of the national 400km (250 mile) audax in Norfolk on the 16th and 17th June 2012.  Of the 120 who had entered, only 75 started, the others put off by the bad weather, particularly the strong wind.  Many riders were struggling early on as the first 100 miles were into a headwind. John rode 3/4 of the event on his own and was the fastest finisher with a time of 15 hours 45, 2 hours ahead of the next rider.

John is now taking part in the National 24 hour championships which are being held in our region in two weeks time.
