Super Hilly 20th AugustPosted on 2019-08-14 by Janice Wakefield
We have reluctantly decided to cancel next Tuesday's super hilly event due to the recent re-surfacing on part of the circuit. We have contacted the relevant authorities to run a 1 Lap Fonaby TT instead and are currently awaiting confirmation that this will be OK.

Club Handicap Road race Thursday 25 JulyPosted on 2019-07-15 by Janice Wakefield
Still unhappy with Road surface on proposed circuit near Binbrook. I'm in the process of doing necessary paper work ETC to move venue to Great Limber Village Hall. So race is going ahead. Will use the Fonaby circuit to race on. I have swept the corners and marked out pot holes for the recent LVRC race on this circuit, so it is good to go. Plus I should not have to do it again! so saves me a Job. Remember if you want to ride you must have a TLI Licence. Still time to get one if not done yet.
