Brian (Sid) Hygate is Back on the Road.
I got this mail...
Older members might be interested in my progress since my pile-up back two years ago. I reckon I'm as repaired as I ever will be, even the new hip is performing well!
Nearly finished my preparation for the Prudential Ride London 100. My F&CCC jersey (which was cut off my back by the paramedic) has been repaired, my wrecked Carlton Giro d' Italia has been professionally rebuilt, and I've put 4000 miles under my wheels since Jan.1st
.I'd be interested to know of any other members who are riding on August 10th. I'm aiming to get inside 6hrs 40mins ( 15mph average ). brianhygate (at) gmail.com
Cheers, Brian (Sid) Hygate.
Help with Go Ride Certification
As part of our Junior development, we are working on accreditation for the Go Ride scheme. Is there a member that can help by being the contact point for enquiries about our activities in Go Ride? Contact Nick if you can help.
We also have a number of other vacancies. As I mentioned in a recent newsletter, because of work changes, I cannot continue in the web editor, newsletter role, so newsletters and site updates will be much more sporadic unless someone can come forward to take over. Contact me for details if you can help. The technical side of the website is looked after by Simon, so the main job is just creating articles and content.
We also have vacancies for general sec., social sec, acting ladies sec and rides coordinator. These are good opportunities to get involved and to influence the direction of the club. Again, contact me if you can help.
Well done Team FCCC!
Well done to Matt Charlton, Kelly Miller and Dave Triska who got second place for FCCC in the WLCA 50 yesterday, 13th July.
Matt and Dave were 4th and fifth respectively at 1:56:07 and 1:56:02. Kelly came in 19th at 2:02:05 with a + of 13:30.
I have attached the full results which should be downloadable when the page is viewed here.
Note - Training session cancelled
Note that the training session that was due for the 15th July at Eelmoor is cancelled because of the air show.
Correction - the sessions on the 15th and 22nd are both cancelled.
Club Members that want to help with the Tour of Britain
We are liaising with the council to help with the Tour of Britain Road Race, which is starting from Camberley on September 13th. The council is looking for volunteers to help at the start area for the morning. (The Tour organisers will be looking for more marshalls later, apparently).
If you would like to help, please register on the club calendar here, so that we can get an idea of numbers. We would prefer members that have club kit as this is a great chance to boost awareness locally.
Update - the organisers were looking for 24 helpers, and we're up to 19, so just 5 places left! Thanks to those that have responded.
FCCC Track Championship 2014 - now confirmed
Dick reports that he is still one or two short of helpers on timing for this event. Last registrations by the end of the club evening on the 18th July!
Dick has now confirmed that he has booked Reading track for a club "Track Championship" on Wednesday 23rd July. The event will be run using road bikes rather than track bikes.
There will be a warm up session followed by 500m Sprint and Pursuit category competitions. These will be run for Seniors, Juniors, Ladies and Vets. Seniors and Vets will do a 9 lap pursuit, Ladies 6 lap and Juniors 4 laps - the track is 490 m in length.
We will need four timekeepers and a qualified first aider - if you can help, contact Dick
