I have just been informed (20.6.18) this morning that incredibly, the Toddington roundabout road works were completed this morning.

Therefore, there is an opportunity to run the originally programmed 25 mile TT Event tomorrow, if I can have at least two Marshal volunteers (ideally 3).

If you can help then please contact me today, so tomorrow morning I can decide whether we can run it.

If I do not get the helpers, then we will keep the 10 mile TT event as planned, to be confirmed by approximately 2 pm tomorrow (21.6.18)

Congratulations to our Harry Walton for an excellent time achieved last night (14th June) on our new 10 mile course, referenced U715.  The race report is provided on the TT page, but he covered the distance in 20 mins 47 seconds – It is good to see his knees are OK now!!

Our next TT Event is provisionally programmed as a 25 mile but due to the delays at Toddington roundabout, I anticipate this will not be possible.

In the likely event that it will be cancelled, then we will use the 10 mile U715 course again.

Details to be confirmed on Thursday 21st June, before 2.00 pm, once I have driven around the courses and seen what is available.

If the U715 course is used, then the HQ is at Dumbleton Village Hall and it will be open from 18.15 hrs and sign on will close at approximately 19.10 hrs.  The first rider will be off at approx 19.30 hrs.

Please ensure you have read the clubs risk assessment below and also use the link below for general information.  Please take particular care crossing the A46 after leaving the HQ and please ensure you go to the lay-by on the A46 before crossing the A46 for a second time to arrive at the lay-by for the start.

New 10 – U715 – Method Statement V4

C&CCC are hosting round 7 of the Western Cyclocross Summer League at Pittville Park on Wednesday 4th July – see https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/178107/Western-Summer-Cyclo-Cross-League-2018-Round-7 . As usual it would be good to see a good turn out of club riders. If you’re not planning on racing, but would like to help out, we do as ever need marshals – if you can help please let Rob Haynes know, either in person or via the contact page.

Just a reminder that on Saturday 16th June there’s an extra option for the club rides to go and watch the Women’s tour at Snowshill. As well as the route suggested in the  original posting some of us will be riding across to Worcester to try to catch the finish, using a route something along the lines of https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27773583

There’s also still time to enter the virtual Women’s Tour at Velogames.com that Giles has setup. You can enter before 10:30 on Wednesday using the code 664131821.

 

Stage 4 of this year’s Women’s Tour takes place on Satuday 16th June and the race route passes north of Bredon Hill and on to Broadway and Snowshill. There will be an extra route on that Saturday to go and watch the race on Snowshill before heading back to town.

The route is a little longer (50 miles) than the typical Saturday ride and we will be back later (the race isn’t due on the climb to Snowshill until ~11:45). While there are cafes close to the route (Foxy Brown’s or Broadway Tower), it’s assumed that they will be rather busy and a cafe stop is not likely to be practical, so please bring enough food and drink with you.
