Round 5 of the BMBO 2015 series is taking place locally at Longdon on 31 May.

For those not familiar with these events they are a really enjoyable challenge that you can make as competitive or leisurely as you like. They favour a balance between fitness and navigational skills as you get a map with lots of control points scattered about and have to visit as many as you can in the 3 hour time limit choosing your own order and routes between.

There are more details on the BMBO website here, entries in advance by 27 May or on the day.

Following on from the very successful inaugural ride last Wednesday ( April 15th)  There will be another Women’s Training Ride meeting up in the lay by close to the Ellenborough Park Hotel  at 6.30 tomorrow & every Wednesday evening through the summer months.

So if you’re looking to improve your fitness, pace & endurance, come along & join us!

Jayne & Emma

The women did us proud last week, working together to achieve an excellent pace. All reporting back to say they had a great, if at times challenging, ride!

More re information on the routes are available on the Ladies Section page.

From this coming Sunday (26th April) and continuing throughout the warmer months, both the “Club” (16) and the faster “Sportive” ride will depart from the Pump Rooms at 8:30.

The club will be running the first event of the Western Cyclocross summer league this year. These are mid-week evening events, quite informal and a very good introduction to cyclo-cross for new riders. The calendar of events is on the British Cycling site here. Round 1 is on Wednesday the 13th May. We need volunteers to help on the later afternoon setting up and marshaling in the evening. Also some help preparing parts of the course the Saturday afternoon before will be helpful. These will be official duties qualifying for a membership credit against next years membership fees. If you think you can help, or want to know more details of the event please contact John Hawes

If you want more information , contact John.

If you want to enter any events on-line registration into the league is available. From the league facebook site:

The Summer League is approaching fast. Chip timing is back again and we are making some improvements to the league registration process to help speed up race sign-on and the results process.

If you are going to do 4 or more races why not register for the league? Its even easier now, just follow this link and add your data. You should then find your details ready on the race sign on sheet and your points will be counted in the league. If you already registered in the winter league then there’s no need to do it again.

If you’re only going to do one or two races you can still enter on the day at the start line and we hope to see you racing again.

The time trial league is upon us! Round 1 is this Thursday with 5 miles from Toddington to Teddington. The following thurday we resume the staple diet of 10 mile events, with a smattering of 25 mile and interclub competitions, before the annual assault on Aggs Hill in September.

We have a new competition format, a new HQ and even some new time keepers for this year, so lots to be excited about. All the details are on the TT pages.

Things to note for this week:

  • The new HQ is Teddington Village Hall. There is some parking at the hall itself, though there is plenty next to the church. We are asked not to park in the lane by the hall itself, please respect this request and if in doubt, ask!
  • When you have finished your ride, do not ask the time keeper for your time or hang around the finish area. Please return to the HQ, get changed and collect your time when the event has finished. There are no exceptions, if in doubt, don’t ask!
  • Sign on is from 6pm, Entry is from 7pm, £4 for all + £1 if you aren’t with an affiliated club. U18′s will need to fill in a consent form from http://www.ctt.org.uk/Forms

See you Thursday,

Harry
