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 £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 on 0116 2207844.

From Bob Bragg - Time Trial League for 2014

To reply to all who have enquired about a TT league, I can assure them that this currently, is work in progress. We hope to run a number of events, as evening 10's, from May till August. The early season events (3) will still be run during March. We hope to get the details for the league completed by the new year and publicise it to attract riders from all clubs in our region. This will be a trial for 2014 and depending on support it will continue. As the events unfold we hope to learn how to improve the series. We will keep you updated on the progress of this project. 

 

 

FORUM - Cycle Mart - New Category

There is a new Category Heading in the 'Forum' Section for Ratae members who wish to make other members aware of cycling items that they have for sale, or items they are seeking to buy.

This service is intended solely for the bringing together of persons who may have items they wish to sell to each other.  Any transactions are to be carried out wholly between the parties concerned.

Note that any posts without a reply will automatically 'fall off'' after 30 days.  If you want to keep it on, add a reply / update within that period to reset the clock

There is a disclaimer linked to the new category that absolves the Club from any responsiblity or liabilty arising from any such transactions.

Being a new feature to the website, the new category will be monitored to assess how well it is working.

 

A 'Link' to our Facebook Page is now available in the 'LInks' Section

After a suggestion by a Forum user we now have a 'link' to our facebook page.  As it is a closed group the 'link' will take you to a log-in page.  Anyone logging-in and being a member of the group, will be taken straight to our page - Ratae Road Club.

Have you had a go at leaving or replying to a post yet ?    It is simple, useful, informative and fun.

Any queries regarding using it, then contact Susan Doram or Pete Moss.
