"Omnium" style circuit event Tuesday 29th May
Posted on 2018-05-18 by Janice Wakefield

Omnium Event
After the popular and mostly "Enjoyable" Handicap Road race another event away from TT's is getting close. On 29th May we move to Meridian Park in Cleethorpes.
Format
Based on the style of an "Omnium". All riders will be "grouped" based on ability and a series of events will take place. EG Points race, Devil and Some form of Handicap/sprint racing and possible pursuits. This will reduce numbers of riders on circuit at any one time and give you a chance to rest between races.
Entry Detail
Fee is just £4 to help towards the costs involved. Again TLI Licence and Crash hat required. Because it is a traffic free environment Day Licences are available.
Signing On
If possible would like riders to sign on around 6.15/6.30pm so we can get the groups organised.
Not Riding
If you do not want to race, it is well worth coming down to spectate and offer your support.

Handicap Road Race
Posted on 2018-05-17 by Janice Wakefield

On Tuesday Evening 22 members lined up for the first of this years Road race events. Weather was good and the racing fast and competitive. Four groups set off with 3 min gaps between them. The limit/lead group of 3 riders worked well together and held off the chasers until around 2 miles to go. Groups 2 and 3 put in sterling rides but the scratch group put in a super effort to work their way all the way up to the front with Andy Thomas taking first from Tony White in a very close finish. Handicapping individual members was a little bit hit and miss and I apologise to anyone who may have struggled a bit with their grouping. However the results and timings will be used to tweak the handicapping for event two. The next race is a carbon copy of this first race, taking place Tuesday 26th June. Circuit can cope with a few more entries, so if any riders missed out on being able to ride last Tuesday as long as you obtain a TLI Licence you are welcome (or indeed encouraged) to join in next time.

First Club Road Race next Tuesday 15th May
Posted on 2018-05-09 by Janice Wakefield

First Handicapped road event takes place next Tuesday.
EVENT OPEN TO. All LRCC Members plus NEL Go Riders attained age 14 with TLI licence.
TLI LICENCE. To obtain a licence visit TLI web site. You can apply on line and print off a Licence at a cost of £12 (free if under 18). We have another road race planned for Tuesday 26th June. Plus two circuit events also under TLI rules.
EVENT HQ. Is different this year. It is Binbrook Village Hall on Kirmond Road. Open from 6.00pm. This gives facilities for changing and toilets before and after the event.
ENTRY INFO. Entry fee is £4. All riders will need to have a TLI licence to hand in at the HQ. Plus we need a completed entry form. They are available on line and can be pre-populated before printing to save time on the night. For back up we will have blank forms at HQ.
RACE INFO You must wear a crash hat but do not need to wear club colours (any jersey design is acceptable under TLI rules). For 2018 the use of cycles with Disc brakes is allowed.
THE CIRCUIT. Circuit is shown on Strava Segment "LRCC Wolds 2 circuit". The start and finish are on Brats Lane at the top of the climb not as shown on the segment. Junctions will be signed and marshalled, lead cars will drive in front of the groups. 5 laps of the 5 mile circuit planned but depending on light conditions 4 laps may be used
FINALLY. It would help if riders can report to the HQ before 6.30pm to sign on and give officials time to decide on handicap groups/timings. We need to start the first group at 7.00pm prompt and the start/finish is approx. 2 miles away (all uphill). Allow approx. 10 mins to ride there.
If you have any concerns or questions please ring me on 07870271694. Steve Wakefield event organiser

Road Chip Sealing Covenham
Posted on 2018-04-21 by Janice Wakefield

Hi All Had a call today from Graham Blanchard. Both roads heading south from Covenham towards Yarburgh and Brackenborough are closed today for chip sealing. So probably wise to avoid for next few days. Then expect to use extra care if riding out that way for some time.

Next Tuesdays (17th) Hilly TT
Posted on 2018-04-13 by Janice Wakefield

Hi All. For last Tuesdays hilly I drove around the circuit and due to fog decided to cancel the event. On the leg over to Croxby from Rothwell the wet conditions made the road surface difficult to judge. In case it's wet again for the next Hilly (17th) we have been able to get clearance from the relevant people to use the super hilly circuit. However it is a bit bigger lap so we need to start prompt at 6.45pm to enable riders to finish before light starts to fade. Also we will need to set off slower riders nearer the front and faster riders nearer the back of the start list. So a bit of co operation needed on the night.

Again the largest donation to date. I am extremely pleased with such a fantastic amount and feel proud to be part of such a great day out for local cyclists. See you all 9th September(or probably before)for our Bob Kerr Ride.
