We need your help - Please Volunteer - use this form
Lining up volunteers to help run our club time trials has always been a challenge involving last minute pleas to the membership on a weekly basis. This year we have decided to ask volunteers to nominate dates when they can help ahead of time. With nearly 100 members in the club we should not have difficulty running these events but without willing volunteers there is a real risk that events will have to be cancelled.
Clock Tower Club Run - Sunday's at 0900 from Maidenhead Station Car Park
Bird Hills Club Run - Sunday's at 0830 from Bird Hills Golf Course Entrance on Drift Road
Here are just some of the memories from a great trip that Magnus, Mark and I took to the Vätternrundan, a 300k ride around a Swedish lake with nearly 20,000 other cyclists.
Charity '10' - Raising funds for the local community
The morning started gray and wasn’t forecast to brighten up till after the time we all expected to be back home. This didn’t put off 9 riders meeting up at the golf club for the usual brisk ride. This week a new rider Alistair turned up for what turned out to be a baptism by cycling fire. Others in attendance along with myself were Les, Mike, Matt, Rob, Simon with Dan and Mark stepping up from the Clock Tower group.
11 of us turned up at the clock tower, two of our normal crowd had deserted us for the Bird Hills group (and looking at their Strava feedr I wonder if we will ever see them again?), but we had all ridden before and there were no new members so I did a quick check that everyone was happy with 50 miles and decided we could do the 80km reliability ride route today as I had it loaded on my Garmin.
Hi Folks, As it looks like being a warm evening after this Thursday's 10tt how about all gathering at the Shirehorse pub for refreshment.
Thanks Andrew Payne
11 of us today - and we stayed together all the way round to the very end! No drop outs this week...but it was shorter and slower than recently, partly due to the fact I did a 90 mile Sportive yesterday and partly because Gurpal had just done the 25 mile TT on the ski slope. Malcolm met us at the start with membership cards (and to tell some of us we hadn't paid yet...we have now! oops) Summer really feels like it has arrived, although it was a bit breezy!
