Olympic heroes Wiggins and Hoy get New Year honours
Chris Hoy gets an MBE for “services to cycling.” And Bradley Wiggins gets an OBE for being a “cyclist” and “For services to sport.” The pair join other gonged sporting stars such as Kelly Holmes and Tanni Grey-Thompson, both made Dames in the New Year’s Honours list. And rower Matthew Pinsent can now add Sir to the front of his name.

Reliabilty trial season starts
Towards the end of the month the reliability trials begin. These are a break from the usual club run style ride and are a little more competitive. You basically get a certificate for completing the distance in a target time. Great if you ate too many minced pies… These are mainly in the South East but we will add more later on… e-mail us if you know of a local event here
