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
I’m not sure how many turned up for Sundays Bird Hills club ride as the regulars where either doing a road race around the Drift Road or providing support.
This was the 1st event in recent years where a team entered from the club for a road race. The team consisted of Colin, Brett, Andy W and Michael S. For Colin and Brett this was their first experience of road racing.
A Maidenhead group completed the 2-day London Revolution sportive this weekend.

Due to lack of data I could not come up with target times for some people. If you have no times then let me know what your current 10 time is likely to be and I will update the table.
It was breezy, yes, and not as warm as last week - but the sun shone and pulled 13 people to the Clock Tower on Sunday morning this week....some training for next weeks' Revolution, and 2 new members. We though that was a big group, but we managed to pick two ladies up as we were going through Cookham who were also doing the Revolution next week and didn't know there was an MDCC...they do now! That meant 15. Was it a record number...not sure, but it wasn't far off.
With the weather looking promising for a Sunday morning ride, 11 riders turned up for the Bird Hills group ride. Danuta was a little frustrated as she was refused a ride on a 25tt round the Drift Road course. This was compounded by Saturday’s race on H10/181 being cancelled due to poor weather. (I got hailed on for the 3rd time on that course). To make up for this, Danuta unusually suggested we should take the uphill route to Stoke Row past a radar dish, so with no objections and myself confirming I knew the road in question we set off.
