We have hired All Saints Hall, our usual club night venue, for a one-off Thursday “Introduction to Time Trialling” presentation to see whether this proves a more popular evening for club nights than Friday.
The presentation is particularly aimed at anyone who’s new to time trialling and interested in giving it a try – getting started is easier than you might think.
Members of the club’s TT team will be on hand with their bikes and TT-specific kit for advice and questions after the presentation.
Venue: All Saints Church Hall, Chapel Lane, Farnborough GU14 9BW.
For those unable to attend our successful Club Dinner last night here is a full list of this year’s trophy winners.

NOTICE TO MEMBERS:
Notice is hereby given to all members of the Farnborough and Camberley Cycling Club that our Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 2nd February 2018 at 20.30 at Club Room, All Saints’ Church Hall, Chapel Lane, Hawley GU14 9EW.
Nominations for election, and any specific proposals you wish to be discussed, should be sent to the General Secretary, Bob Vineer, to arrive no later than Friday 12 January 2018.
Contact details are: E-mail: [email protected] or by post to: 60 Hawkesworth Drive, Bagshot GU19 5QZ.
Below is a list of current committee positions which shows those posts currently vacant or to be vacated at the AGM.
A number of new members have joined the club during the year who may be able to contribute on the committee or as a club official and I would ask everyone to look at the vacant posts and ask themselves if they feel able to support the running of the club. If so, please let other members know or contact a member of the committee so that they may nominate you. Alternatively, you may know a member who you think would be a suitable candidate. Each nomination requires a proposer and seconder.
I very much look forward to receiving your nominations which must reach me by Friday 12 January 2018.
Following the hugely successful 2016/17 annual dinner at the Frimley Hall Hotel we will be returning there again on 10 February 2018 for the 2017/18 celebration.
As was the case last year the committee has decided to subsidise the dinner in order to keep the cost the same at £28 per person.
Please follow the link here to register your intention to attend (or not) so that we can gauge numbers.
A separate form will be circulated with menu choices and payment options closer to the event – for now, we just need to know how many will attend this great evening. We hope you can join us!
Thanks and best regards,
The Farnborough and Camberley CC Committee.
Single Leg Stretch
Lying on your back in a neutral position (neck long, shoulder blades and rib cage on the mat, small arch in your lower back), knees bent and feet on the floor. Breathe in and as you exhale, engage your pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscle and lengthen one leg (keep your leg close to the floor), return as you breath in and repeat with the other leg. Repeat 10x
To advance this further, raise your knees above your hips and repeat as above. (you don’t have to lengthen the leg, you could just tap your foot on the floor. The longer the lag the harder) x10
Lying in the neutral position, exhale as you engage your deep abdominal and take one arm up and above your head, then return as you breath in. Alternate arms with the focus on keeping your ribs down. Repeat 10x
To advance this add the Single Leg Stretch Exercise.
Lying on your back, knees bent and stuck together. As you exhale, engage core and roll your knees to one-side. Inhale whilst at the side and then exhale and work from your core to return to the middle (neutral spine). A progression would be to raise your knees above your hips, but be conscious of sending your knees directly to the side. x10 each side
Lying in a neutral position with your knees bent and feet on the floor. Start with a pelvic tilt and then engage your glutes and continue to raise your body up until you are resting on your shoulder blades. Inhale at the top and then exhale as you bring your ribs down first, then mid back and lower back, then pelvis to neutral.
A progression is to ad 6 leg extensions when at the top. Raising a leg (above other leg), focusing on keeping your pelvis up and level! Alternate legs! x4
One all fours, knees under hips and hands under shoulders, engage pelvic floor and keep shoulders away from ears. Lengthen one leg behind, ensuring you engage your glute muscles and straighten your leg! Focus in keeping a neutral spine. Return and repeat, alternating legs. x10 on each leg!
A progression would be to add the alternate arm. Raising your arm forwards and up but keeping your shoulders back and down.
Lying on your front with your arms by your side, palms facing up. As you raise your upperbody, rotate your arms and open across the front of your collar bones, drawing your shoulder blades together down your back. As you lift engage your core and only lift your upperbody slightly. Keep your eyes down. x10
Lying on your front, with your hands wide at chest level. Push through the palms of your hands, look forwards and open across your shoulders, pushing your chest and then ribs forwards. Aiming to make a ski slope with your back. x5
Lying on your side in a neutral position. As you exhale, engage your deep abdominals and raise your top leg. Repeat leg left 10x
– Raise both legs , working your obliques more and keeping your shoulders relaxed!
– Raise both legs and head works obliques too!
Side Lying Leg Circles
Lying in a neutral position, lower leg bent! Circle your top leg 10x in each direction. Remember to extend your hip (take foot behind you) to ensure correct movement in the hip!
Staying on your side, Knees bent and forwards, arms in front and block/towel underneath your head. Take the top arm up and back opening across the front of your chest and shoulders and rotating your spine. Repeat 10x on each side.
Standing tall feet hip distance apart. Relax your head and shoulders and roll down on yourself. Make sure you support your spine by engaging your deep abdominal. Keep your knees soft and move as you exhale. x5
Above all this the main aim is………
To become much more aware of your pelvic floor muscle and your posture!
Practise engaging your core as often as you can!
To improve your flexibility you need to hold the stretch for at least 30 seconds and progress the stretch gently within those 30 seconds.
Standing on one leg. Bring your other foot up behind you and place in your hand. Remember to keep your knees next to one and other. Tilt your pelvis (tucking your bottom under), pull your foot so your knee drift back slightly and feel the stretch down the front of your thigh!
Place your foot up on a chair or wall. Keeping your leg in front of you so you are square with your hips. Keep your leg totally straight and whilst sticking your bottom out lean forward! Feel the stretch up the back of your thigh.
Seated at the front of a chair, cross one leg over the other so your ankle is resting on your knee. Let your knee fall out to the side. Seated TALL, stick your bottom back and lean forward. You could also push your knee down slightly with your hand. Hold!
