Our next Time Trial Event is the 'Open' 25m - A25/20, Six Hills - Saturday 27th of September
The 'Ratae Rouleur' - Sunday the 7th of September
The sun shone and we could not have asked for better conditions as our first 'Ratae Rouleur' turned out to be a great success.
Many thanks to all who came and participated. It was interesting that those riding the 40 mile route far outnumbered those doing the 25 mile.
We hope to see you again soon and look forward to promoting a similar event in September next year.
Ratae - Saturday morning 'Chain Gang' Ride - Is suspended at present due to members other activities at the weekends

Club Standards for Members
Each year, the Club organises a competition based on setting target times for individual time trial riders for the usual time trial distances, such as 10, 15, 25 miles etc.
The cost of entry is Â£2.00 for each distance entered and our Standards Secretary sets a time which is challenging, but perfectly possible for that rider to achieve during the season in either a club or open event.
At the end of the season, the riders who have reached or beaten their target times are awarded a medal. There is then a further challenge to be faced - when the times achieved are compared with the standards set for the individual rider, the Ladder Trophy is awarded to the entrant exceeding his / her standard by the greatest speed margin at any distance.
The Trophy is awarded annually at the end of the season.
Entry forms are obtained from the Standards Secretary, Bill Powell. He attends most of the Thursday Club Nights; otherwise he can be contacted through this website.
