Club News 28th Aug.

Ok a little bit busier on the racing front this week with a number from the club riding in the Torq in your sleep event. The best result being a win by Clive Evans in the grand vets 6hr solo and by some distance. In the 6hrs mixed pairs myself and Gosia managed 2nd place, with Phil and Alex Earl came 8th a position replicated by Wayne Edwards and Jason Snell in the men’s pairs. Although now riding for Trek, regular training attendee Sam Edwards took a win in the 6hr solo male, so some good results all round.

Over the last week we as usual have been busy, Club night last Monday, road training Tuesday a social MTB ride Wednesday, cross training Thursday and a social MTB ride Saturday, hopefully in my absence there were a few out on the Sunday road ride.

The new club kit should be with us soon and hopefully I will have it for the next club night.

A big thanks to Matt Burt who has volunteered to take on organising the club’s Christmas social night this year, which I am sure will be a good event, so as soon as definite details are known make sure you reserve a ticket.

This week’s riding plans are as follows, Tuesday road training, 6 to 8p.m. at the Hillingdon Circuit, hopefully there will be a social MTB ride on Wed evening so please post up on the club website/facebook page or WhatsApp if you are interested, Thursday there is MTB/Cross training at the Old Hillingdon ski slope, meet 6.30 at the Hillingdon Athletics track car park, then for a number of us we have a long weekend in North Wales MTBiking. In my absence it would be nice to see someone posting up some weekend rides if you want the ride to be for a particular group, a social ride, a training ride or whatever just post up full details either on the club facebook page, the club website or on the club’s WhatsApp group.

For those looking forward to the cross season now is the time to affiliate to the leagues as the 1st Central race is on the 15th September and hopefully Neil Ellison’s success last year has inspired a few more to take part.

Looking further ahead I have booked Calshot indoor velodrome for 3 dates this winter and I do need a deposit of £15 for the 1st date in December as soon as possible as if there is not enough interest from the club I will be opening up the event to non members.

This week’s activities are as follows:

Tuesday-Road training at Hillingdon 6 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.

Wed-MTB social Ride TBC

Thursday Cross/MTB training, Meet 6.30 p.m. Hillingdon Athletics Track car park
