Open Time Trial Event - 9am Sunday 9 September

Event HQ - Hardwick S&S Club, Egremont Road
The third, and final, open event that we are promoting this year is a 25 mile time trial on the A428 at Hardwick.

We are grateful to members who have already stepped up to help with running this event, be it marshalling the course or baking cakes for post race refreshments.

However we still need one more course marshal and a timekeeper's assistant (for texting rider numbers and times to the HQ results board). If you can help on Sunday morning 9th September between 8:30 and 11:30 please contact our time trial secretary

Simon's Memorial - A huge thank you from Sue and Sophie

Mum and I just wanted to thank the hundreds of people that came to celebrate Simon's life with us, you helped to make it the perfect farewell.

There were some amazing tributes and memories of a happy-go-lucky, humorous, multi-talented and 'Crazy-Legs' Simon, which is how we all want to remember him.

To all of you that attended, spoke, wrote, came along with cakes and donated to the Air Ambulance we thank each and every one of you.  We have collected over £1,300 for the Air Ambulance which is incredible - thank you so much.

I've spoken to a few you about arranging a cycle ride in Simon's memory and I will let you all know when and where.  Maybe we could end the ride at a Mini Event?(Ed - Simon's other hobby was his Classic Mini)

10 mile Championship for the September Plate


Event location changed to Barton F16/10 due to ongoing roadworks at Bottisham

This Thursday 23 August is the last Club time trial of the season (barring the hill climb on the 30th!) Which means it's your last chance to help out if you haven't yet helped on two occasions - we still need a marshal, pusher and 2nd time keeper, so please email the time trial secretary to volunteer.

First rider off at 6:31pm. Guest riders (being members of other CTT affiliated clubs) sign on from 6:10pm - entry fee £3. Non club members are also welcome to ride at a cost of £5 which includes day membership.
