- Ciocc, Extro LC, 2011, Fulcrum Wheels, Campagnolo groupset, blue (VERY RARE BIKE), has a garmin gps mount on the stem and is missing the water bottle bolts on the vertical tube
2013 10 12 - Saturday Club Time Trials
A good number of riders from around the region in October. We're expecting plenty out in November, weather willing!
Club Meeting 4th October - Follow up
At Friday's club meeting (4th October), Nigel will be giving a talk on "Planning your winter training for success next summer".
Nigel is a BC qualified coach and will be giving tips on how to make the most of the fitness gains that you have achieved this year and how to peak your training towards your goals next summer, whether for better TT performance, racing, riding sportives or just enjoying your rides more.
Non-members are welcome, but there will be a £2.00 charge for non-members.
Thanks to Nigel for an interesting talk.
I have attached his powerpoint for those that weren't able to get along. You'll have to go here to download it, as downloads are not available on the front page.
Next month we're planning a practical session on winter training equipment and we'll have demos of rollers and various trainers (Tacx/Lemond) etc. Let Bob know if you have something you can bring.
Aldershot Cycling Club?
Alan has been contacted by someone trying to find out the history of the Aldershot Cycling Club. The person's uncle, Cecil Reynolds, apparently helped to found the club before the WW2 and his Mum (Cecil's Sister) and Dad met through it,as did many others. He has a picture of a reunion of members around the 60's', who gathered from all around the world. If anyone has information, please contact Alan.
As you may have seen from Martin's post, the new kit has arrived, but Martin is having a PC nightmare, so the data on orders has evaportated. He will be at the club night on Friday to supply what people have ordered.
Gareth's August and September Newsletter
Thanks to Gareth for his August and September Racing Report. I have really enjoyed reading them this year.
Club Hill Climb Championship 2013 09 21
Well done to Tom for winning the Hill Climb Championship and to Danny for winning the Junior championship!
We don't have a record for the Hill Climb as this is a type 'B' event (i.e. club, not open). Looking at the results I have, the fastest on this course that I can see (records not complete) is 04:20 by Mr T Harper in 2002

Bike For Sale
We don't usually carry personal ads, but thanks to Chris Young for sending through a picture of (he says) his wife's bike which is for sale. It doesn't go so well on the road, and is not heavily used but check it out in the gallery.
