Some guests at the Clock Tower ride

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.

Clock tower run - 18th Oct 15

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!

Maidenhead 1/2 Marathon

Bike guide required for the Maidenhead half Marathon on 6th September

Hi Members,

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.

Clock tower run 23rd August 2015

There were 10 at the clock tower this morning, two of whom were new ladies, and it was great to see Malcolm there too, for 2 reasons - one its great to see him on the bike, and two he was happy to take our new ladies out for their first ride with the club. Dave B was on a time limit so went with the slower group too....maybe one of you guys could let us know how the 4 of you got on? That left 6 of us.

H30/1 - 30 Mile Club Championship - was it by bike or Jetski???

Four club members Andrew, Jon, Tim and I, woke to a beautiful still morning, perfect conditions for a stab at a quick time and the club record maybe......

Several hours later, as forecasted, the heavens opened and everyone raced in very heavy rain, lots of standing water and huge plooms of water from passing traffic. 

Thankfully all completed the race, as did others with no serious incidents, although nearly broadsiding a Range Rover might have ruined my race, and made it back to HQ to shiver and a cup of tea.

Mike Henley's report on the recent 24 hour TT that he rode

I acknowledge the 24 hour TT is a bit of a specialist event - it attracts a lot of entries from riders who are into various endurance formats (e.g. UMCA, Audax) as well as regular TTers.  A 24 is as much about food and fluids, coping with sleep deprivation and staying comfortable in an aero position as it is power profiles.

Open tt results for week ending 19th July 2015 - Big mileage in the National 24hr
