Rides and Races

Arrange rides, discuss upcoming events and dissect results.

Ride London 100 2015 (old discussion - don't post further here)

The ballot results for this year's race are due to be sent out next week.  However you can enter the registration page below, view your application and you will see either 'Accepted' or 'Cancelled'. (Warning - I had to re-try a few times today before it worked)




Sunnier Climbs

I hope everyone's winter training is going well. If you want something to look forward in the next few months and cycling in Spain on smooth tarmac up and down mountains sounds appealing then have a look at www.sunnierclimbs.co.uk.


If you interested but not in a position right now then please let me know your email address to go onto our mailing list and why not like our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sunnier-Climbs/453816658089045?ref=hl and follow us on twitter https://twitter.com/SunnierClimbs.

2015 Time Trials


Is there a timetable for this year yet?

I was thinking about if the Hilly 30 Time Trial from last March is happening, as I missed it last year.


Evans ride it event 11th jan 2015

Hi all, hope you all had a good Xmas,
Is anyone interested in joining me on the first evans west london ride it event, leaving Osterly park on sun the 11th jan, I've booked my ticket for the long 75 mile (need to burn off Xmas). I do appreciate the Sunday clubrun but the map indicates it goes out to our neck of the woods.

Stuart's BMC for 2015

Need to check Stuarts not riding one of these electric assisted bikes on the boxing day 10tt :


Tour of Cambridge - Closed Road TT

18 mile technical course, 700 riders, 30 sec intervals with a pro start ramp - I'm in! Anyone else?



Velothon Wales - MDCC team

June 14th next year sees the first running of Velothon Wales which is a 10,000 strong closed-roads 120km/50km sportive (followed by a pro event) like Ride London, but looks hillier.

Details are here http://www.velothon-wales.co.uk/en/

Entrants are allowed to enter as a team to ensure they start in the same wave.  So for anyone from the club who wishes to join in, please enter 'Maidenhead & District CC' as the team name.

Tour of Britain - Friday 12th Christmas Common.

I'm cycling over to Christmas common (top of Pishil) tomorrow to watch the tour of Britain.

Will be leaving around 11.30am from Taplow, if anyone wants to join me either ring/text my mobile: 07940 308382 or I can meet at the Harvester in taplow.

The lead cars come through at 13.50, around 30 minutes later the tour comes through.

Lost Garmin 800

David Richard lost his Garmin 800 during the Club TT on August 28th.


Long shot, but has anyone handed it in?


Thanks, Andy

Vätternrundan 2015

It's that time again, planning for the epic rides next year!

Twice before we have participated in the swedish ride Vätternrundan.
300k, fast flat-ish riding in mid June.
Please see the previous reports at

This year so far 7 people have said they want to do it, and this is without MDCC marketing!!
We've discussed initially and likely will ride through the night, but its really only dark for 2-3 hours, and everyone have lights.
