Type-A Time Trials 2015
At the AGM the club agreed to run three type-A time trials in 2015: 10-mile, 25-mile during the racing season and 10-mile at Christmas.
It is now the time for us to apply for 2015 events to our CTT District, London West.
I have an organiser for each of the two events during the racing season but require a volunteer to organise the Christmas 10 in December 2015.
I am aware that this seems a long way off, but if I do not get a volunteer for this task I will not apply for this event to be run in 2015.
It is essential that I have full details of an organiser before the DC meeting on September 15th.
A Cycle Gathering for Kris Cook
As you may know, a rider on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, Kris Cook, last week tragically died while climbing Newlands Corner. This Sunday his friends and family would like to invite you to join them up at Newlands Corner, so the cycling community can pay their respects to him. Kris lost his life doing what he does best: taking part in an event to help his chosen charity – Woking and Sam Beare Hospices
Friends, family and fellow cyclists are welcome to join the group and ride from the North side (Clandon) at 9am to the top for a gathering in memory of Kris.
There is a thread in the forum for riders from FCCC to signal that they will be attending. We've been asked to let the organisers know how many riders will be attending for safety reasons. Kris’s family are also welcoming donations to his Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/

Club Night 15th August
Please come on down to the club night on Friday 15th as BC will be handing over our Go Ride kit. There will be a chance to talk to a BC representative, so please come if you can!
It's also a great opportunity to get more information about helping or getting on the list of helpers with the Go Ride. You could also get your youngster on the list (because we only have one approved coach so far, we have to limit numbers!)
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.

Box Hill Loop Closed
The Box Hill Loop (specifically Box Hill Road) is going to be closed from the 12th until the 26th of August. During this period there will be times that it is unaccessable by foot or bike so you won't be able to count on including this on any of your routes. From Surrey Police:
Box Hill Road will be closed approximately 300m from the junction with Headley Road. There will be diversions in place and we would encourage recreational riders and clubs to consider their routes in this area.
