Type-A Time Trials 2015
At the AGM the club agreed to run three type-A time trials in 2015: 10-mile, 25-mile during the racing season and 10-mile at Christmas.
It is now the time for us to apply for 2015 events to our CTT District, London West.
I have an organiser for each of the two events during the racing season but require a volunteer to organise the Christmas 10 in December 2015.
I am aware that this seems a long way off, but if I do not get a volunteer for this task I will not apply for this event to be run in 2015.
It is essential that I have full details of an organiser before the DC meeting on September 15th.
A Cycle Gathering for Kris Cook
As you may know, a rider on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, Kris Cook, last week tragically died while climbing Newlands Corner. This Sunday his friends and family would like to invite you to join them up at Newlands Corner, so the cycling community can pay their respects to him. Kris lost his life doing what he does best: taking part in an event to help his chosen charity – Woking and Sam Beare Hospices
Friends, family and fellow cyclists are welcome to join the group and ride from the North side (Clandon) at 9am to the top for a gathering in memory of Kris.
There is a thread in the forum for riders from FCCC to signal that they will be attending. We've been asked to let the organisers know how many riders will be attending for safety reasons. Kris’s family are also welcoming donations to his Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/

Location needed for Go Ride
To run the Go Ride sessions, we need access to a flat, traffic-free tarmaced area on regular Saturday or Sunday afternoons, or early evenings (would need to be lit) for about 1.5 hours.
If you know of an area we could use (rent is possible), please let Nigel know. The area should ideally be around 80m x 40m, although smaller might still be usable, and with no blocks to visibility as the coach has to be able to see all the riders at all times.
Contact Nigel if you have any ideas or offers.
Big News - Go Ride
It's fantastic that the club has achieved this status before the Tour of Britain in September as it will allow those trying to find a club to be directed to us by BC and by the Go Ride website. At the moment, as you can see from the map, there are few places for youngsters to get proper training (and Charlotteville has a waiting list, despite having eight coaches!).
We will need more coaches and helpers. If you would like your children (or grandchildren!) to have access to the coaching and development system that has led to the huge success of the UK in cycling, please consider taking a coaching qualification - the club can support you in this. Contact Nigel for more details.
The club will continue to develop and we are on track to gain Clubmark status in the future.
Tour of Britain
We will be running some activities at the Tour of Britain start with support from other coaches. If you can help, contact Nigel.

Help with Something other than Go Ride Certification
Thanks to Andy Hale for stepping up to fill the contact post for our Go Ride application.
However we still have a number of other vacancies. As I mentioned in a recent newsletter, because of work changes, I cannot continue in the web editor. Thanks to Mark for stepping up! Thanks to Mike for agreeing to look after the rides.
We also have vacancies for general sec., social sec, acting ladies sec and we will shortly have a vacancy for a volunteers coordinator, as David is going abroad for a while.. These are good opportunities to get involved and to influence the direction of the club. Again, contact me if you can help.

Under 20 minutes for a 10 is pretty good!
