"Is it this left?" - Clock Tower Ride 3rd May

7 days ago I was racing in the European Duathlon Champs circumventing endless roundabouts in Madrid in torrential rain and hailstones, so I was hoping for slightly more comfortable conditions back in Maidenhead this morning.  However this was a UK bank holiday weekend so I wasn't entirely surprised to see the rain falling when I looked out of the window this morning.  It was one of those days when I wondered whether I would find anyone at the Clock Tower when I turned up, so I was pleased to meet both Steve (a prospective member keen for his first ride) and Rob. 

About time two! - Clock Tower Ride 19th April

Neither Sarah nor I could make the Clock Tower ride last weekend which pleasingly saw the brighter weather attract more new members.  However Rob Ingle and John Gibson ably looked after them and Rob sent the following report.  I hope you newbies enjoyed your ride and look forward to meeting you soon, though not sure who will be around this weekend (Rob, Sarah and I will all be absent).


About time...

We started writing our rides up again! And what better time than on a day when we had 10 riders at the clock tower, 4 of which were new members, and 3 of whom were ladies! Hoorah - a third of the riders were ladies - it was great to see and both the new ladies said they would be back, so thats fantastic.

2015 Club 10 Handicap now up and running

The club 10 handicap competition is now up and running and can be found here. If your name is not on the list it is because you have not paid your subs.

Joe Francis is already off to a flying start and has obviously been training hard over the winter.

Hi Folks,

This link shows the provisional results and a short race report from today's hilly 30tt.

A big thanks to those who stood around on a fresh windy day to help make the event a success.  The sun didn't shine as promised.

From the Archive- Looking Forward to a New Season - 1955

Maidenhead Cycling and Athletic Club Summer Programme for 1955

We have in the archive a selection of Maidenhead programmes from the 50's through to the 70's and I thought it might interest members to see what the Club had planned for the season 60 years ago. 

Clock tower run 11th Jan 15

It was a somewhat milder start to the day than last week (only 3 of us made it then, and only 2 finished - it was so cold - so I didn't write it up!) and 8 of us met at the Clock Tower. 3 new riders Matt, Derek and Charlie (who has been out with Birds Hill before) joined Dave D, Dan, Rob and myself whilst Malcolm set off for home straight away (we did see Brian on the road to Twyford so maybe they managed to hitch up). We decided to do the usual route today, as it gives new riders opportunities to head home if they are struggling.
