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
As I am sure everyone has heard, the remains of Hurricane Bertha meant that yesterday’s Ride London 100 had to be shortened to 86 miles with the removal of Leith Hill and Box Hill. I think most of us were disappointed to hear the news as we lined up under clear skies at the start. However whilst making our way through the flooded roads of Surrey in huge downpours we had to agree that it was the right decision.
Well done to everyone from MDCC who completed the ride yesterday:
It's almost the end of the season so I thought that I'd better publish the Thursday 10 handicap standings.
With five events to go it's all to play for this season with Bernard Phillips taking a well deserved lead (58 points). Having started the season trying to break 'evens' (30 minutes) , he managed to do that in style, putting in a 27:48 on the A4. In second place is Time Trial Secretary, Stuart Auckland (52 points), having gone under 22 minutes on no less than six occasions this season.
