Promoting recreational bicycling in Lancaster County for all interested cyclists

August Time Trials

Weather was good about 80 degrees, sunny with light wind and low humidity. Eleven experienced riders came out, of the conventional riders Nick DeAngelis had fast time at 16:13 and Dave Simons and Bernie Caber came in at 16:19, Eric Kragness with a recumbent came in at 14:52. Wyatt Stauffer, Rich Snively and Joe Kelly attended all 4 events, Joe was able to post a better time every Month.

Jersey Winners!

In the 55 and under age group Nick DeAngelis won by a margin of 8 seconds over Eric Kragness who’s
recumbent bike was given a 90 second time penalty. The 56 and over group was even closer with Joe Kelly posting a great time of 19:19 to edge Rich Snively by 4 seconds.

Lynda Hasper won the ladies group with an average time of 21:07.

The sportsmanship award went to Rich Snively who attended all the events always volunteered to marshal an
intersection and barring a mechanical problem in the July event may have won a time jersey, Rich has a great attitude and the LBC should be proud to have him as a member.

July Time Trials

Weather was sunny 85 degrees humid and light wind.

We had the 16 riders participate which is the largest group this year, first timers were Sam Pawlak, Jim Wolgemuth, Mark Wilhelm and Rick Eyer. Eric Kragness with a recumbent bike had fast time at 15:05 followed by Nick DeAngelis and Jim Wolgemuth.  John Reigel, Joe Kelly and Zoran Prelic have been to all three events and posted a faster time each month.

Jersey Standings For July

In the under 55 group it will come down to Nick DeAngelis and Eric Kragness if Eric participates in the August event, considering the 90 sceond time penalty for the recumbent bike their two event average times would be close. The 56 and over group is up for grabs with John Reigel, Joe Kelly, Rich Snively, John Cameron and Martin Valins all having a chance to win with an exceptional time at the August event.

Thanks to everyone for helping and keeping the event safe,

See you August 3rd
