There were smiles all round on Wednesday when no fewer than six riders in the Cycling Club Breckland 10-mile club event at North Tuddenham recorded personal best times.

On what was obviously a perfect evening all six improved by two minutes or more - in Martin Badham's case by an astonishing five minutes 23 seconds on his tricycle.

Youngster Adam Cross finished exactly two minutes faster than the previous week, recording 25:36, while Emily Davis' 32:06 was a two minute 13 second improvement.

“That is for Grandad Bert” she declared in honour of her great grandfather Albert Saunders, who died recently.
