HI All. Paul and family would welcome any local cyclists who may want to join Karen's funeral cortege on Thursday. The place to join the cortege is on Westward Ho between the Birkwood medical practice and the Ormiston Academy. Please assemble off the road initially at around 12.15pm the hearse will slow as it approaches and a gap will be created between it and the following cars. Please join into the gap. The route will be via Bargate and Weelsby Road. All cyclists are welcome. Wearing club colours is encouraged but not essential.

Karen Wakefield
Posted on 2021-07-13 by Janice Wakefield

We are deeply saddened to announce that our club treasurer, Karen Wakefield, has passed away following a very brave battle with cancer. Along with Paul, her husband of 42 years, Karen was instrumental in making the Lindsey Roads Cycling Club what it is today. Together they organised several open time trials on behalf of LRCC. Karen has been a regular timekeeper at the club time trials for many years as well as a judge at road races and cyclo crosses all over Lincolnshire. As those of you who have ridden any of our reliability trials can testify, her cake making skills were legendary. For many years she has also arranged the club dinner and prize presentation and made sure all the trophies and medals were engraved and polished ready to be handed out. She will be very much missed by us all. Karen's funeral will take place on Thursday 22nd July at 12:45 at Grimsby Crematorium and there will be a Wake afterwards at Stallingborough Grange. Everyone is welcome at the Crematorium although there may still be some restrictions in place as regards the number of mourners allowed inside. We have been advised that there there will be speakers to relay the service outside if necessary. Flowers are welcome (Kettles funeral directors) or alternatively donations can be made to St Andrew's Hospice.

Fonaby 2 Lap 15th June
Posted on 2021-06-14 by Janice Wakefield

Just been up to Caistor top. Member of work force assured me the section of Riby drag we need will still be open tomorrow night, so Fonaby 2 Lap is still on.

1st June Fonaby 1 Lap TT - Cancellation.
Posted on 2021-05-31 by Janice Wakefield

Hi All, I've just been out to look at the Riby drag Section for tomorrow nights TT. While the surface has improved quicker than I expected I would still prefer to leave a bit more time for it to settle further. Plus the Highways Dept. have left the warning signage with 20MPH speed restrictions in place. So unfortunately no event will take place.

Club TT Cancelled for 18th May
Posted on 2021-05-16 by Janice Wakefield

Wednesday and Thursday of last week substantial portion of the Riby Drag received fresh coatings of grit. While usable with care and lower speeds it would not be safe for racing. My contact at Lincs police to discuss circuit changes due to such a situation is currently unavailable. So unfortunately the Tuesday 16.4 is Cancelled with no replacement. It may be possible to run the event on a Saturday later in the year.

Club retro time trial
Posted on 2021-04-22 by Janice Wakefield

Our club retro 10 mile time trial takes place next Tuesday 27th April on the C10/4 course between Limber and Laceby roundabout. To compete for the Terry Jarman retro trophy and to qualify for club league points riders must ride a road bike with no tri bars and wheels with a maximum depth of 35mm. Riders can still ride TT bikes but their times won't count.

50th Anniversary Ticket sales system now open.
Posted on 2021-04-11 by Janice Wakefield

CLUB TIME TRIALS
Posted on 2021-04-02 by Janice Wakefield

There are some extra rules we have to follow so that we can run our time trials this year. Signing on for The Fonaby and C10/4 events will be in the car park of Limber Village Hall. Please come ready to race or be prepared to get changed in your car as the hall won't be open for changing. We may be able to have the toilets available but we are waiting for confirmation. You should sign on using the pen provided and then put it in the 'used pen' box. Entry fees are £4 for club members and £5 for visitors and under 18s will need a parent permission form. There will be a box at the car park that you should drop your number in after the finish. Please remember to shout your number as you cross the finish line but don't ask the timekeepers for your time, they will be posted online ASAP after the event. When waiting at the start please make sure you are at least 2 metres behind the rider in front and please don't arrive too early. There will be no 'pusher off' and all riders will start with one foot on the floor. All riders must have a working rear light on their bike. This is an excerpt from the CTT risk assessment:'People should be reminded that they should NOT be socialising with others in the car park and should upon leaving their car, get their bike out and go straight out onto the road to warm up; a large collection of people has a negative perception and should be avoided. Competitors on finishing should not loiter at the HQ/Car Park and should pack away and leave immediately upon completion of the race.' Please also familiarise yourself with the rules on drafting and overtaking that are available on the CTT website. I know this all seems a bit draconian but in order to promote the events we have to follow the CTT risk assessment and do our best to keep everyone safe.

British Cycling latest guidance
Posted on 2021-04-02 by Janice Wakefield

1.1 From March 29, UK Government guidance now permits the re- introduction of organised sport and physical activity which adhered to relevant National Governing Body guidance, while groups of up to six people are permitted to ride together informally in line with the Rule of Six (or as a group of two households).
1.2 Below is a summary of the current position for cycling activity:
1.2.1 Appropriate social distancing must be maintained before, after and when not actively participating in cycling activities.
1.2.2 British Cycling-affiliated Club rides or recreation programme rides, which adhere to the guidance set out in this document, can take place with up to 15 participants, on highways, trails and tracks. Informal riding (i.e., groups of friends meeting to ride together) will still be limited to the Rule of Six.
1.2.3 Outdoor coach-led club training and coaching can take place for all ages, with numbers to be determined by a coach’s qualification. Indoor activity is only permitted for disabled people or for educational purposes at this stage, and will be determined by facility access.
1.2.4 At this step of the Government’s roadmap, you should minimise time spent outside your home, but you can leave your home to exercise and take part in informal and organised sport and physical activity. You should always check that it’s safe to travel before you set out to take part in sport or recreation.
1.2.5 Social interaction before and after cycling activities should only take place outdoors, and in separate and distinct groups consisting of up to six people or two households.
