12 out and dry weather, although some wind.
I got this through from Mel..
"I just thought I'd let you know that registration for 2boats (2nd-4th May 2014) has opened already. If people register by August it only costs £250 to take part.
Here's the link - http://www.2boats.org/2boats-cycle/
Would be great to have some of you along :o)
At the next Friday meeting, Dick (a famed record holder) will be giving a talk on Road Records - how to get them and what they are. This is to follow up a campaign by the Road Records Association, which the club is affiliated to.
Social Secretary Still Needed!
Nobody came forward to take up the position of Social Secretary for the club at the AGM - we're still looking for someone that would like to take the role on. If you might be interested, contact Bob.

A good turnout with seven from FCCC on the fast CC175 course.
How far can you go?
Just a reminder that we have an area of the gallery that's called "Where in the World". for members to post pix of them (in club kit) as far away from Farnborough as possible. Currently, Iain Gill is winning at just over 6,000 miles. I thought Steve would have been in the lead, with the tanglangla pass, but a) it turns out to be only 4,000 miles (pah!) and b) he wasn't wearing club kit. My ride last week in Vancouver got me close to Iain, but not close enough! (and it's an appalling shot - there was nobody else up the mountain to take a picture!

23 riders out for a club evening event shows the combined effect of a fast course and dry weather!
Road Race May 12th
Nigel has asked me to post this.
"I would like to give a massive thank you to everyone who turned up and helped make our Road Races a huge success at the weekend. It was truly a TEAM effort. But I would like to give special thanks to Karen & Martin for the excellent catering, Alan for doing a splendid job getting all the riders signed on and the numbers back at the end of the race. The Two Chris's for driving the lead cars, and Charters for providing the lead cars. And all the marshals who made sure the races progressed without any major incident. Well done. The top 3 from each event were as follows;
3rds - 56 Miles
- Gareth Thomas - Kingston Wheelers
- Andrew Keynes - VC Meudon
- Nigel MacAodha - Ronde Bicycle Outfitters
2nd & 3rds - 72 Miles
- Peter Allen - Independent
- Chris Morrison - London Dynamo
- Richard Unwin - VC Meudon
On behalf of the club, I'd also like to thank Nigel and Gareth for organising the event - there were a lot of road condition-related problems this year that meant a lot of extra work for them. Thanks!
Honour Walk for British Legion
We have been approached by the Surrey branch of the British Legion which is organising a fund raising event including cycling around the Dunsfold circuit. It is part of a national campaign of 'Honour Walks'. It will take part on 6th July.
Each lap is around a mile and teams can sign up for as many as they want to ride.
If you might be interested in taking part, can you register your interest with me.
