New Holiday Village in Blacknest
We have received a mail from Ian Salisbury about a proposed holiday village in Blacknest. He has concerns about safety if the development goes ahead as planned and this might affect those attending TTs on H10/8. Comments on this can be posted here or contact Ian(at)bearfootgraphics.co.uk
Social Secretary Needed
Sadly, because of a job change, Kim can no longer continue in the position of Social Secretary for the club. Thanks to her and Stu for the efforts they have put in on social events and in getting the ball rolling for next year's Annual DinnTer (which has been booked!)
That means that we're looking for someone that would like to take the role on. If you might be interested, contact Bob.
We got this message that there was a meeting on Thursday about acccess to military training areas. Thanks to Richard Barnes for sending this information:
"TAG have reported on the meeting http://trailactiongroup.co.uk/
The main message for cyclists is that :
- The MoD have had legal advice that if they´re ever asked about cycling on military training land they must reply "cycling other than on metalled tracks is illegal under the 1976 byelaws and the definition of a metalled track is a tarmac road such as Bourley Road"
- Whilst they have to repeat the party line, they did say they would be enforcing it by requesting riders to move on. If the rider was disruptive "again and again" then a 'warning off notice´ would be issued, if it happened again, another 'warning off notice´ would be issued but it´d be up to the police to do anything more (they share the notices with the police)

Free Session at Reading Track
As those that attended the AGM or looked at Dick's report on the accounts will have seen, the club made an unexpected surplus in 2013. We decided to use that surplus to encourage competition and skills development.
To that end, we are planning to run four evening sessions at Reading track that will be subsidised by the club for attending members. (The normal price is £5.55). The next session is on Tuesday 3rd June at the Palmer Park velodrome. Start time is 8:15pm, but best to be there at 8:00. No special bike is required - a road bike is fine.
Nigel (our Level 2 coach) will be there to help by training on the use of the track and track ettiquette. He will also be giving guidance on group riding techniques, such as "through and off". Note that, as a result, the Eelmoor event on the 3rd is cancelled.
The last couple of events have been very enjoyable and worthwhile and it's a great way to spend an hour and a half on your bike without having to worry about potholes or motorised traffic!
If you plan to come along to the session, for planning purposes, please go to the event and select the "I will attend the event" option and click on the update button. Thanks!
