Hadleigh Cycle Club is organising a new sportive which they are calling the “Gayford Flyer”, in honour of Hadleigh’s Oswald Gayford, born in 1893, who held world records for long distance flying in the 1930s.
Following their flying theme, there are 3 “flight plans” for their event on 20th September 2015:
- The Hurricane: 16 km / 10 miles, starting at 10:00
- The Lancaster: 50 km / 32 miles, also at 10:00
- The Spitfire: 100 km / 63 miles, starting at 09:30
