TIME TRIAL SAFETY
Posted on 2019-05-07 by Janice Wakefield

When taking part in any club or open Time trial, Cycling Time trial rules state that marshals are not in place to control traffic and riders must adhere to the rules of the highway. This means at junctions such as Laceby Roundabout the onus is on the rider to safely negotiate their way around the junction and give way to traffic as per the normal "Give Way to traffic from the right". Please ride safely.

Club Handicap Road racing
Posted on 2019-05-03 by Janice Wakefield

The first of our 3 race series kicks off Thursday 30th May. Being designed to open up the chance to have a go at road racing they are open to club members only. The move to Thursday avoids disrupting the TT series and means riders can still ride a TT as well.
All events are run on a Handicap basis to enable riders to ride with others of similar ability. Handicapping is not an exact science but with subsequent events on the same circuit the results from event 1 can be used to help with events 2 and 3.
IMPORTANT. To ride you must have a TLI Licence. These cost £15. see http://www.tlicycling.org.uk/JoinRenew.aspx?cookieCheck=true

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.
