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
Apologies for the delay but the 2017 calendar has been updated with our Time Trials, West London Combined and Club Championship events as appropriate.
Some key/championship dates to note:
Field size 60 / Fancy dress, mince pies and mulled wine
The MDCC Sportive Trophy competition runs for the 12 months to 31st October each year in order to make sure the results are available in time for the Annual Dinner. So with the sportive year having come to an end, please could you notify me of your qualifying rides over the past 12 months so I can determine the results.

In 2010, I spent a year of my life training to break the world record at the Brathay 10 marathons in 10 days. I ran a marathon (or 2!) every weekend, did a lot of training, everything went really well, but then with the car packed, and with 48 hours to go, things weren’t quite so good, out of apparently nowhere, I ended up with multiple significant bilateral pulmonary embolisms (lots of large blood clots on the lungs in normal speak)
