This cycle challenge in support of Help for Heroes sets out from the Royal Engineers Museum in Gillingham and offers a good day in the saddle for serious and recreation cyclists alike. With a choice of two distances (56 or 10 miles) there is something for all the family to get involved in.
The ride has been organised to coincide with Armed Forces Day; a national day of celebration for our Armed Forces. As well as the bike there is a large scale event taking place just a short walk from our start/finish venue. Bring family, bring friends and whilst you ride, they can enjoy the spectacle that is Armed Forces Day. Click on the icon to find out more about Armed Forces Day.
We want you to enjoy this event; revel in the challenge and bring along your friends and family. The event is being organised in support of Help The Heroes and all proceeds after expenses will be donated to the charity.
Our good friends at The Bike Warehouse in Gillingham are about to place a new order with PS+ for new club kit.
If you have anything specific you are after, you should get in touch with them NOW. Be it jerseys, tights, arm warmers, gloves, skin suits, jackets, kit bags, wheel bags... you name it, they can probably sort it out for you.
Let them know what you want, and they'll get it on order for you. TBW can be contacted by phone on 01634 571 093, or just head down to Gillingham High Street and talk to them in person. Tim, Jason and the rest of the TBW crew will be happy to help.
Provisional results are available for the Memorial 25mile TT race that happened on Sunday 3rd May are now available; along with a bunch of photos take by Gerald on the day.
With the cyclo cross season now ended it is good to see the club well represented in the different categories in the London Cyclo Cross Leagues.
In The Junior league it was a very successful one for the club riders. With 30 riders battling for honours Chris Hyde finished 2nd overall. He was closely followed by Ben Wood and Haden Davis in 6th and 7th positions respectively. Fantastic rids by all of them and a credit to the club coaches at the Go Ride sessions which they have all attended.
The club was also represented in the veterans groups. With Paul Buckley 16th and Michael Wood 22nd from 104 riders in the 50+ races and Dave Bishop 30th and Russ Saunders 78th out of an enormous entry of 216.
Congratulations to all of our riders and I am sure all the younger members will improve and find themselves finishing in the top 10 placings.
The Anderson Cup is the club trophy awarded to the rider who competes and places in the most Open and Club race events throughout the year. Before this year points were taken from early spring through to late September; but with the rise in popularity of CycloCross racing and new Winter Race Leagues, points can now be optained throughout the whole year.
Paul Vine was the first to get points on the board with a very fine 7th place in the club Open Hill Climb in October, but Chris Hyde is the star performer at the moment. His best achievement was taking a superb 2nd place in the London & South East Cyclocross 2014/15 Junior Series. In the same series, Ben Wood and Hayden Davis achieved 5th and 7th places respectively.
Elsewhere, the club’s leading lady Anna Saunders, has also had some very good placing’s with 6 top 11 positions. Phil Appleby is taking part in the inagural London Olympic Velodrome Winter Track League, and has had some decent results in his races.
