Richard Bickley and Katie Lukas were fastest male and female riders respectively as Border City Wheelers staged a 10-mile time trial in Cumbria on Saturday.

Bickley, 35, clocked 19-42 for the L1010 near Cockermouth, giving him the win by 54 seconds from Craig Horseman (Beacon Wheelers), while third spot went to John Morgan (Cover Your Car), who was a further 16 seconds back.

Lukas, 44 and from Penrith, clocked22-22 to win the women’s prize by a convincing margin of more than three minutes from Carol Westmorland (Border City Wheelers) while Claire Logan (Macclesfield Wheelers) was third.

Bickley’s win makes it two open victories in a row following on from his win in the VC Cumbria 25 a fortnight earlier, while he has not placed outside the top four in any of the events he has entered this season so far.

He was second in the Kent Valley RC 25 in June, third in the Border City Wheelers hilly 29 back in May as well as round five of the Knight Composites Classic Series and the VTTA Lakes and Lancs 50.

Lukas adds another victory to an impressive list of good rides in 2018.

She was fastest female in the VC Cumbria 25 in June, while in May she won the Border City Wheelers 29, the Kent Valley RC 9.1-mile Shap climb, and the Nelson Wheelers 25.

Other notable results for Lukas include a win in the Beacon Wheelers 10 in April, while she was second in the Springfield Financial 10 last month.

The L1010 course takes riders from a start point alongside Bassenthwaite Lake, before heading south and across to Keswick on the A66, before retracing to finish just short of the start.
