Thursday Club Time Trials - Assistance required

Thursday TT, June 30th on CC175

Mark is unable to help with timekeeping for this event.

We have two options available to us:

1. Someone contacts me beforehand to volunteer as assistant timekeeper for this event.

or

2. The entry is restricted to a dozen riders only to allow time to reach the finish before any riders do.

Assistance at Club Time Trials

Due to impending rule changes by CTT related to the running of ALL time trials it is necessary for additional helpers to be present during our events for the placing and removal of warning signs.

Our running of the Type-A events is not affected, but there could be a serious impact on our club events.

In order to minimise the effect on the club event programmes the provisional number of additional helpers required for signage on each course is:

HCC255A / HCC255B - 2

HCC216a - 2

HCC257 - 2 or 3

HCC175 - 2

H10/8 - 1

H25/88 - 2

Without these signage helpers, the start of the events will be delayed to such an extent that the events could not be run.

I require a guaranteed list of helpers for each club event, who will erect signs at their designated point prior to the event and then retreive them following the event.  In this way the time required will be minimised for all involved in the event.

Please contact me with your offers of help so that we can continue to run our events to the required standard.

Can You Help? - Marshalls and Volunteers Required for Club Road Races on the 14th June

 
The club Road Races are taking place on the Sunday 14th June this year and as with every year we will require a decent amount of marshalls / volunteers for each event, the morning and the afternoon. I would greatly appreciate the help of as many members as possible. The date was chosen as to not clash with any other local events known about and also any major or local sportives.
 
As usual the course is around the Cutmill circuit over near Elstead and there is a morning and afternoon race each requiring marshalls, if you can do all day that's brilliant but if you can help with just one event that's just as brilliant.
Ideally each race morning and afternoon requires a minimum of:
 
4 Drivers and their Cars, (drivers need to have British Cycling licenses)
15 marshals
1 signing on clerk
2 finish line marshals
2 Hall Volunteers – teas, cakes etc.
 
All Marshalls and Volunteers will be given a briefing and if you haven't done it before, it's not very difficult, you will be put on a corner with an experienced Marshall.
If you could please contact me with your availability and what you can do or would like to do, I’d be very grateful. The events are in the club calendar on the website and you can select morning afternoon or both, please feel free to select a job but I cant guarantee that's what you’ll get. You can also PM me if you would like to let me know that way. If you would like to help but are unsure of the roles please ask and i'll be happy to explain any of them.
Many Thanks

Membership & Ladies Update!

Thanks to Mike O'Donovan for coming forward to take up the position of Membership Secretary.  As he probably won't be at the AGM, I'll take this opportunity, on behalf of the club, to thank Alan for his big contribution in moving the club from 47 at the AGM in 2010 to 233 at the end of the Financial year on 30th November. I'm hoping he gets back on his bike in the future to project manage us again!

Thanks also to Linda Hurst for coming forward as our new Ladies Secretary. If you have ideas for activities, or enquiries, please contact her.

That leaves just two vacancies - one for General Secretary (mainly taking the minutes at committee meetings, in these days of email) and volunteer coordinator. For more info about the jobs, please contact me.

Bike Rental Project

We received this mail:The Source Logo transparent

We are in the process of working with CTC and Hampshire County Council on setting up a small bike hire scheme in Aldershot, giving bikes out on 2-week hires to job seekers and those on benefits. Part of the aim is to help people get to job interviews, as well as experiencing cycling and being keen to take it up.

We'll be given a fleet of 12 bikes to maintain and are looking for 2 lead volunteers to help in assisting a team of 4-6 young people. We'll also be given 3 sets of workshop tools and equipment. CTC are providing over £2500 worth of training for the lead volunteers and the young people. We are keen to get this up and running by 1st November.

Time commitment we expect to be one or two sessions a week on an evening or weekend (each session being 2 hours long).

This is a great opportunity to join a social enterprise in a voluntary capacity at the very start – helping it grow into something bigger from the first quarter of 2015 to look like a bit like The Guildford Bike Project. We are working with Rushmoor Borough Council and Grainger PLC to launch "The Rushmoor Bike Project" (working title) in 2015, refurbishing and selling old bikes, as well as offering servicing and community workshops. This should become a fairly decent sized operation fairly quickly, with potential paid employment for 2 people.

Apologies for this cold call type email – but I really hope you've made it this far through the email! If you are interested in finding out more then please do not hesitate to contact me, or if you know of others who might be keen or have a cycling network you can send this on to then please feel free to do so.

Ideally I'd need to know peoples interest by the end of the month so that we can get the appropriate training booked in. We are really excited about this project and the huge difference it can make to the young people we are working with as well as raising the profile of cycling in the borough.

Hope to speak to you soon!
