Club TT Helpers Roster - 2015

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.

Club Run Start Times

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

Week ending 28th June Open TT results

Star perforrmer this weekend goes to Heather for knocking 80sec of her 25tt pb, bringing it down to 57.21 at a course near Newmarket.  On Sunday morning Stuart raced on the H10/17r nr Kingston Bagpuize (the other side of Abingdon) in a 21.33 clearly feeling better from Thursday club TT.  On Saturday afternoon myself and Jorj went to Bentley H10/8.  Jorj completed in 24:xx and I did a course pb in 22.03.

4th annual Box Hill club ride - 28 June

18 club members and guests rode this morning's trip to Box Hill and back.  The weather was fine on the way there and also at Box Hill but showers hit us on the return journey.  I was in a slower group of 7 on the way back but from chatting to those there at the golf club afterwards I think everyone stayed mostly en route and made it back safely.

And a quick clock tower one too...

And a quick write up of he Clock tower...which was also fairly brisk!

8 of us today - Dave Booth and I in club tops, everyone else was either new or fairly new and Jane brought her Dad along for a fathers day 'treat' (he was down from Manchester and a very strong rider)

We did the reliability route - as I wasn't sure about everyones level of riding so wanted to keep it fairly flat, and one of the guys needed to get back and lived in Bracknell. I needn't have worried - there were some strong riders out there today.

Bird Hills ride -21st June - Gravel and Ladies Tour of Britian

Just a short write up of todays Bird Hills club ride.  We had 7 regulars and 2 new riders dragged along by Matt and Les and 10th who ridden once with this group and a couple of times with the clock tower group.  The general agreement was 'reverse' of a normal route, then round to Stokenchurch / Lane End to watch the ladies Tour of Britain.

A fantastic ride in Wales ... the Velothon

Compared to the alternatives of sprinting up and down a bypass for 12 hours, camping and riding through the night in Sweden or hunting out dragons in the mountains of Snowdonia, I think Rob and I definitely took the easy option last Sunday in riding the inaugural 140km Velothon Cymru on closed roads from Cardiff.
