Emitremmus was an event not to be mist!

Hundreds of cyclists celebrated the end of summertime by clocking in for Stevenage & North Herts CTC’s famous Emitremmus rides on Sunday (30 October).

Despite thick mist all day, the annual ride to ‘Reverse Summertime’ proved a big success as 338 riders headed off into the countryside on various bikes and trikes – having enjoyed the benefit of an extra hour in bed that morning after the clocks went back.

They were sent on their way from Fairlands Valley Park by Councillors John and Joan Lloyd, the Mayor and Mayoress of Stevenage.

Cyclists had a choice of a 100km run, with a time limit of eight hours, or a ‘lite’ version of 67km (about 40 miles). Refreshments were provided at the control points in Hare Street, Saffron Walden and Therfield.

“We’d like to thank all participants and helpers for their fantastic efforts and support to make the day such a success,” said Stevenage CTC secretary Jim Brown.
