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!

Scheme for Support of Open TT & Race Riders (2014)
This year, we are repeating last year's scheme to reward those that are taking part in open TTs and in racing.
Where riders commit by the end of May to either, during the year:
- Riding in 6 open TT events
- Riding in 6 race events
the club will refund either
- (for TTs), half the cost of entry and
- for road races, half the cost of a BC licence or Surrey League membership fees.
The maximum amount claimable for TT riders is £50. Note that the committment has to be made by April or May, but the rides can be done anytime during the year (before or after the committment).
Riders that intend to apply, should advise Bob that they intend to take part and then submit evidence to Dick of participation and cost once they have done the 6 events. Riders should be 'of good standing' - that is to say they have to be paid up members and met membership requirements. They should also compete in club kit.
We had been hoping to introduce a wider scheme to reward competitors and helpers next year, but we're short of a volunteer to administer it. If you can help, please contact Bob.

Help Needed For 12Hr TT at Newbury
Newbury CC are running a 12h time trial on 15th of June, using the A31 between Coxbridge roundabout and Chawton roundabout. Obviously, with a long event such as this, they will need a lot of help with marshalling etc, otherwise a few people will be standing there for a very long time. Even a couple of hours will be extremely helpful.
If you are able to spare some time to help to support the event, please contact Donald.
ps entries close on 3rd June, so there's still time to enter if you fancy a serious workout!
Runways End Event 20th September
The club has been offered a space at the Runways End Activity Centre. It could be a good chance to promote the club at an event that is expected to attract several hundred people. If any club members are able to help out on the 20th September (perhaps with a roller competition?), let David know.
I got this message through from Mike at 1st Gear Cycles.
"We are pleased to finally announce that the Eelmoor race series will be going ahead this year and will be starting on the 28th May.
We will still be holding youth races, E,1,2 AND 3/4's.
There will be 9 races overall with 2 breaks in between for Guildford Crit and Farnborough Airshow.
The format will stay the same with Youth category D and E at 6:20pm, Youth
category A,B and C at 6:30pm and E/1/2, 3/4 and women at 7:00pm."
