Frimley Park Hospital Sportive

 Frimley Park Hospital are running a charity sportive this year to help raise funds for their Breast Care Appeal:

 

Ride4Frimley-2014Logo-150

We’re happy to bring you Ride 4 Frimley, a new cycle sportive on 28th September 2014 that will raise vital funds for our Breast Care Appeal. It is aimed at everyone from families to leisure and amateur cyclists.

Registration includes chip timing (22 mile and 50 mile), finisher medal, goody bag, rider insurance, feed station (50mile), bike racking, St Johns Ambulance and mechanical support. 

 

There are three routes to choose from include a 12 mile family route, a 22 mile medium route and a 50 mile full route. The routes head out from Pirbright and take you around Ash, The Sands, and into Thursley. All familiar riding ground if you've been on a club ride. 

 

More details can be found on the Ride4Frimley site. If you are planning to take part and you'd like some company, add a post to the club forum and we can organise meeting up for the event.

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/Kris-Cook/

 

Big News - Go Ride

Go ride logo

We've had the great news that after a lot of work by our Welfare Officer, Nick (and his predecessor, Donna), we have achieved Go Ride status. Thanks, both of you!Go Ride map

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.
