There have been records tumbling all over the place! The 24 hour team record was increased by over 100 miles. The team comprising, Michael Brooadwith, Jonathan Shubert and Tim Bayley. Recording 1547.5 miles between them. All the team topped 500 miles each.
Tandems have been troubling the record keepers as well: the Adam Duggleby and Steve Bate combo have taken the 10 and the 25 records with 17:10 & 43:23 respectively. Mixed tandem pair, Howard and Becky Lewis turned the wheels to an 18:10. Staying on the mixed tandem theme, Richard Dixon and Alex Deck brought the "15" record down to 28:58.
Not to be outdone, the juniors put their skates on, Adam Hartley with an 18:44 "10" and Henrietta Colborne, fresh back from European racing, scorched to a 20:21 "10".

Then we get to Hayley "the whirlwind" Simmonds! It almost seems during 2016, if she is sitting on a bike, the keepers of the record book had better have their pencils sharpened! In July she blew the "50" record out of the water with a 01:42:20. A week later she demolished the "10" record, 19:31 at Hull. The following day, 250 odd miles away in South Wales she tore up the "25" record with a 49:28. Just for good measure, on 28th August she further reduced her own record to 19:18. Anna Turvey, not to be outdone reduced that to 19:08. A week later, Hayley, not one to rest on her laurels, really got down to it and chopped a massive 33 seconds off Anna's time, down to 18:35.
