We need your help - Please Volunteer - use this form
Lining up volunteers to help run our club time trials has always been a challenge involving last minute pleas to the membership on a weekly basis. This year we have decided to ask volunteers to nominate dates when they can help ahead of time. With nearly 100 members in the club we should not have difficulty running these events but without willing volunteers there is a real risk that events will have to be cancelled.
Clock Tower Club Run - Sunday's at 0900 from Maidenhead Station Car Park
Bird Hills Club Run - Sunday's at 0830 from Bird Hills Golf Course Entrance on Drift Road
We had a couple of guests from the Birds Hill Group today - which was a bit scary at first, but they were both gentle on us. Andrew and Heather joined Dave D, Pedro, myself and new member Nikki for the ride in the ridiculously mild November weather this morning. It was mild and dry, but we knew that the southerly wind was going to really pick up, and with my hip injury I needed to try and keep things reasonably flat, so we started off on a route to Windsor Great Park through Eton, Datchet and Runnymede.
I thought it was about time I started writing the clock tower runs up again! Haven't written for a while...but we have still been going out each week.
This week was fairly quiet - lots of people had events on, although none quite as exciting as Dave D coming 20th when representing team GB in the World Duathlon Championships in Darwin - he completed the 10k run/40k cycle/5k run in 2h 24m which put him 20th out of the 42 in his Age Group - amazing!

Shurlock Row - Field Size 45
The organisers of the Maidenhead half Marathon, have been in touch looking for a rider to be at the front of the race to make sure the path is kept clear for the leading riders. I did this last year with another skyride leader, but so far, I'm the only one to respond back.
The race starts at 9.30, but we need to be at the town hall around 8.30. Last year I did a quick recci of the 1st couple of miles through the town.
