Anyone fancy a wet weekend in Wales?

Ed is racing in L’Etape de La Defonce stage race in Wales this coming weekend (Team TT plus two road races) – teams of four and they are still looking for another Cat3/4 rider to make up the team. Anyone fancy it or know anyone else who might be up for it?

Club Kit


Who looks after the kit these days- how do we buy it and do we have anything that would fit me?! i've got a short sleeve top but want some things to keep me warmer. And how do we get club skinsuits?

Chris froome

If anyone wants a signed copy of Chris froomes new book the climb phone the bell bookshop in Henley they are getting 10 more copies in. You will be able to reserve one . I Picked mine up today

Racing the London Nocturne

I managed to win a competition to get a place racing in the London Nocturne. Unsurprisingly its not the mens elite race but instead racing on Barclays hire bikes against 30 others.

Will be sporting the club jersey, so if anyone is intending on going to the event be sure to give me a shout of encouragement.

I hope I win :)

TT traffic lights


Someone at work just mentioned to me there were 4 way traffic lights on our course yesterday in Maidens Green. Anyone know if they are still there and going to terminally destroy tonights TT?

Dunkerque to Roubaix

We all know how hard the pro's are but boy do I have even more respect for those who race the cobbled classics. Roubaix cobbles are brutal!


Thames Velo Spring Road race

Any one up for this Road Race in Little Milton May 11th

Cape Rouleur Prologue and Stage 1

As the Birds Hill group know I'm currently in South Africa taking part in the Cape Rouleur. After the Alpine Challenge last September I was ready for more.


Last night was the short seeding Prologue - in the very British-esq wind and rain. You come all that way and the weather follows!! Grrrr. Thankfully it was only 7.6k so only 12 odd mins out.
