Sunday 3rd April – Open Time Trial (helpers needed) + watching the Tour of Flanders in a Barn

Open Time Trial

The open hilly timetrial returns!

We need volunteers to help with marshalling, pushing off and the like. Please let Scott McArdle know if you can help ( Don’t forget you will qualify for membership credits for next year by helping out.

We are using the same course as last year – the U75. A map is here.  Dean set a blistering time up there last year. /It starts just north of Circencester, before proceeding up the A435 to Seven Springs, back down again and up the climb at Perrotts Brook, for a total distance of approx 35km.

We are very keen for members to enter the event. There are seperate prize list for road bikes, TT bikes, genders and ages which means everyone has a chance of going for something. Enter via the Cycling Time Trials Website at

The Tour of Flanders

Later the same day on 3rd April will be the next club social. We will head to the Frog and Fiddle on the Lower High Street to watch the Tour of Flanders and enjoy some belgian beer and pommes frites. We have hired their barn at the back and will have the race on the big screen.
