2019 Time Trial league starts this week
Posted on 2019-04-15 by Janice Wakefield

The 2019 mid week Time Trial league kicks of this Tuesday (16th April) with a Fonaby 1 lap. For 2019 we are now meeting at the Limber Village Hall rather than Limber cross roads used previously. Also we are having the use of the village Hall to offer Toilets and Changing facilities. Cost to ride is £4 for members and £5 for non members. We use this fee to cover CTT levy of £3 per rider per event, with any extra funds used to help cover our running costs. Please note due to available Light we start all three April events at 18.45.pm. To ease with the organising it would help if riders arrive around 18.15pm.

Chris Sidwells has agreed to visit the club to give us a talk about the life and achievements of Tom Simpson, with plenty of anecdotes and stories told to him over the years by family, friends and his rivals- such as Eddy Merckx and Rik Van Looy.

Chris has started his own publishing company called Cycling Legends. It has a website, which is a free to read on-line cycling magazine, www.cyclinglegends.co.uk and they also publish standard and illustrated books. The first of the illustrated books is called Cycling Legends 01 Tom Simpson. Here is a link that explains what's in the book, and why it's special. https://www.cyclinglegends.co.uk/index.php/features/short-reads/80-cycling-legends-01-tom-simpson.

Just a reminder that our 'Come and Try It' Time Trial for new riders takes place this Saturday 23rd March. Head quarters is Limber Village Hall and we suggest that riders arrive before 10am so that we can explain what happens and answer any questions. The Strava link for the circuit can be found here https://www.strava.com/segments/4241022 and you can see it is just under 9 miles long. The first rider will be set off at 10.30am and there will be refreshments back in the village hall afterwards. We would be grateful if experienced club members could turn up to give support and encouragement to riders on the circuit.

CLUB CLOTHING
Posted on 2019-01-22 by Janice Wakefield

Club Clothing. John is Planning to send an order for club kit immediately after the next club night on the 5th Feb. This will be our last opportunity to buy the new TT skin suits with the built in number pocket at the special price of £120 (normally £240). The next time an order goes in will probably be late March with delivery early May. So this is a good time to get any kit sorted for the new race season. Best way to order is attend the club night on the 5th because we have some stock to enable members to try for sizing prior to ordering.
