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.

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.
Well done Team FCCC!

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.
